Interesting Question of the Day – 27 February 2019

    Two players on the opposing team carried her around the pitch, allowing her to touch each base gently on their way round. Became legendary example of sportsmanship.

  2. Lindsey Hunt says:

    The opposing team shocked the crowd by helping Sara around to each base completing the home run.

  3. Nathan says:

    I’d like to think the opposition team showed basic human decency and helped her complete the run.

  4. Old Bill says:

    Two players from the opposing team carried her around the bases and lowered a foot so that she touched each base and home plate. I figured that out before I checked and found that she actually injured the ACL by twisting to turn back after she realised she hadn’t touch first. It was he first and last ever home run as she graduated soon after and never played again.
