Pitcher Strikes Out Best Friend To Advance And Runs Up To Hug Him


A Minnesota  high school pitcher faced one of his best friends on the plate, who played for the opposing team. It was the 9th inning and 3 strikes advanced his team to the Championship. Once it was over, he didn't celebrate with his team right away, instead he did something amazing.

Both the batter and the pitcher, Ty Koehn, have known each other since they where little kids playing in the grass, so when he struck out his best friend, he immediately ran up to the plate and hugged his buddy. 

It all happened on June 6 and the video is going viral because of how amazing his sportsmanship was. Koehn didn't go celebrate with the rest of his team, until he knew his friend was ok and he consoled him. 

Very cool!
