These softball players carried an injured runner from the opposing team around the bases

Here's sportsmanship, defined: At an NCAA softball game last weekend, Kara Oberer of Eckerd College knocked a three-run homer. But she couldn't make it past first base, having suffered a knee injury earlier in the day. Pitcher Chelsea Oglevie of Florida Southern College, who had just given up the home run, and Leah Pemberton, the second baseman, carried Oberer all the way home: 

Kara Oberer is the Byron Leftwich of softball, if the guys who carried him had been on the opposing team.
