I don't have much time; I have to leave to get to a call at 3... I just found this article on ESPN and was very touched. Tucholsky blows out her knee on her only career home run which happens during her last game. I'll let you read all the details, but due to technicalities her teammates and coaches couldn't help her round the bases without resulting in an out. So two of her opponents--Wallace and Holtman--offered to carry her around the bases. That is moving outside the game and respecting your opponents as people. The article is well written, but the event is even better. Give it a read!
