The girls in gray were behind 4 to 1 in the first inning of the Henderson State University (Arkadelphia, Arkansas) v. Delta State softball game. Delta State's player hit a 3-run homer, and one of the base runners hurt her ankle at second base. The rules are that her teammates cannot touch her until she finishes her run. When Henderson's shortstop saw the pain on the runner's face, she went to help her. Other Henderson players carried the runner to third base, paused to let her touch the base, then carried her to home plate to score the run and to her waiting teammates. Henderson then retook the field and the game carried on.
College sports at their finest.
