Sara Tucholosky never hit a home run. She was up at bat, bases were loaded, and this was the last Championship game of her high school career. She was a line driver, not a power hitter, but as the bat cracked, the ball went over the fence. It was this seniors first home run after playing softball for over eight years. As she ran past first base she did not touch it, she turned around to grab that touch and snap, she fell onto the base and pulled a muscle, her ACL. Because of the way this was played the referee said her team could not send in a substitute; she either had to make her way around the diamond or forget the run. The opposing team asked if they could carry her around the diamond and the ref said yes. So, two girls from the opposing team carried Sarah base by base until she officially received her home run. Sarah's team did not win this championship game, but they received an even more valuable memory and life lesson.
Home runs come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes they allow the other side to perform an outstanding feat.
