Oklahoma Little Leaguer consoles pitcher who had just hit him on the head in classy moment

Tuesday’s Southwest Region Championship to qualify for the Little League World Series was going to be the end of the road for one of these teams from Pearland, Texas and Tulsa, Okla.

But regardless of the result, both teams had every reason to be proud of themselves for one of the best displays of sportsmanship we’ll see in any baseball game.

In the first inning with Tulsa’s Isaiah Jarvis at the plate, a pitch from Kaiden Shelton struck Jarvis on the side of the head. Jarvis went down, but would be OK to remain in the game — the ball thankfully hit his helmet. Shelton, though, was visibly shaken up on the mound, and Jarvis noticed that the opposing pitcher needed some help.

He called time and made his way to the mound to console Shelton.

What a moment.

We could hear Jarvis say to Shelton, “Hey, you’re doing just great.”

It doesn’t get much better than that, and baseball fans understandably appreciated the genuine moment of sportsmanship.

This was how Twitter reacted

That’s how it should be done.
