In a world of trash talk, bullying and overall divisiveness, moments of pure sportsmanship are, at times, few and far between. However, during the Little League Southwestern Regional championship in Waco, Texas on Tuesday, two 12-year-olds gave fans and the nation a reason to remember, that sports are to have fun.

With Pearland Little League, leading 3-2 in the bottom of the first inning with two outs, Kaiden Shelton hit Oklahoma batter, Isaiah Jarvis, in the head with a pitch.
