Thank you for sharing this, Jason. Now I'm all weepy on Valentine's Day! But yes, that is a demonstration of true love -- love for the game, and what it means to those who play it. The girls on the other team knew how much this all meant to Sara, and they used empathy to draw on the courage to bring her around the bases. They are to be commended.

But what struck me most about this was Sara's display of character. I mean, she could have continued around the bases, knowing she missed first base, hoping that no one would notice, and she may never have torn her ACL. But instead, her sound ethics are what made her turn back. Isn't it heartbreaking though that it was her ethics that caused the injury. What are we supposed to make of that? Harold Kushner's "When Bad Things Happen to Good People" can be comforting in that regard -- I am only asking rhetorically here, for the answer is that we never know where our ethics will take us, but you can bet that there is a reason for it, and we must press on and find beauty in every choice, and in every alliance we make.

Here's to teamwork,
