Major League Baseball fans must have encountered plenty of sportsmanship acts over the course of the past decade, but what these two little leaguers showcased on Tuesday’s Southwest Region championship game helped the viewers remember the actual meaning of the uncontaminated version of baseball.

In the bottom of the first inning, came a scary hit-by-pitch moment for the future Major League Baseball players, Texas East pitcher Kaiden Shelton was flabbergasted to see that he hit Oklahoma’s Isaiah Jarvis in the helmet on a pitch. It was clear that the pitch got away from the batter, Isaiah Jarvis was shaken up and couldn’t help himself up the ground as he lied holding his face.

Major League Baseball’ Little League Oklahoma’s batter went to first base shortly after the incident, where he saw his opponent panic-stricken and began to walk towards the mound. He embraced the pitcher, Kaiden Sheldon, and gave him a few words of inspiration. “Hey, you’re doing just great,” Jarvis appeared to tell Shelton as he was joined by some of the pitcher’s teammates and his coach.

Major League Baseball fans were left chuckling after the incident involving Pittsburgh Pirates’ Rodolfo Castro took place in the game against Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. The umpire was also left to wonder upon a response after he saw a phone pop out of the back pocket of Castro right on the base after he slid.

Third base umpire Adam Hamari immediately saw the phone and pointed to it on the ground. The 23-year-old Rodolfo Castro picked up the phone and had no clue what to do. He handed it to Pittsburgh Pirates’ third base coach Mike Rebelo, who had an exasperated look on his face before taking it.
