Last week, baseball fans in Minnesota witnessed a high school game that displayed an act of kindness that is rare in sports today.

The game was Totino-Grace vs Mounds View – the winner advancing to the Class 4A state baseball tournament.

Mounds View Pitcher Ty Koehn struck out Totino-Grace batter Jack Kocon for the final out in the game, sending Mounds View High School to the state championships.

It was what happened after the strike out that has the sports world talking…

Instead of celebrating with his teammates, Koehn immediately approached home plate and gave a heartwarming hug to the batter Kocon.

The two grew up as childhood friends, and even though they now play for different schools – the friendship and respect between the two hasn’t changed.
