Talk About Great Sportsmanship.
Posted: June 04, 2010
From the time we were little kids, we were always told to have good sportsmanship. In the heat of competition, this is often difficult. The same desire that pushes us to win, is the same desire which hates losing and is often the cause of poor sportsmanship. Quite often, great competitors are notoriously sore losers.
This shouldn’t be the case, and this next news story is a great demonstration of a professional athlete’s incredible sportsmanship.
We can’t always control our circumstances, but we can control our reaction to them. I have nothing but respect for the way in which this young baseball player handled himself. I also admire the fact that the umpire admitted his mistake.
