A batter hit by a pitch during the Little League World Series Southwest Region championship game turned from a scary moment to the best display of sportsmanship this year.

Oklahoma batter Isaiah "Zay" Jarvis was drilled right in the middle of his head with a pitch that got away from Texas East pitcher Kaiden Shelton in the first inning. The pitch hit his helmet's earflap and knocked the helmet off.

After several moments on the ground, Jarvis took first base. Shortly after getting there, he called for a timeout and walked to the mound.

If you're watching MLB this year, you expect this to be when punches are thrown, but these kids show what it's supposed to be like.

Jarvis noticed that Shelton was clearly shaken up, thinking he'd seriously injured (or worse) Jarvis with the pitch that got away from him. So, he gave him a hug, and let him know he was doing great so far.

The whole moment was caught live on TV yesterday, and many people have spoken up about the show of sportsmanship.

"This is the kind of values we need to reward and celebrate. " - Donny Lambeth

"Many times in a lifetime of watching baseball I've seen a pitcher express concern for a batter he hit with a pitch. This is the first time I've seen the batter return the favor by going to the mound to tell the pitcher, "Hey, I'm OK. I know you didn't do that on purpose." God bless them both. And their families." - FatherMichael Lyons

"My daughter was a very good pitcher until she hit her first batter & it tore her up…she never pitched again but did go on to be an awesome catcher & first baseman." - Sheri Forsen Crowley

Basketball Gym Turned Into Home For Sale In Indiana

An Indiana couple spent 20 years turning this high-school gym into a home and the house is now on the market for $299,000.

The gym building used to be part of Eastern Hancock High School. It sits on a 3.6-acre lot at the edge of the town of Wilkinson, Indiana. It comes with half of the original basketball court.

The couple Jeff and Christi Broady purchased the gym/house in 2002 for $85,000.

The building is now split into two halves. One half still looks like a gym, equipt with the court, bleachers, and high ceilings. The other half looks like a home, with segmented rooms and two levels.

The owners were able to build walls inside and create new living spaces, such as a kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. They also added windows and doors that led to the other half of the building, where they kept the original basketball gym.

Wilson said he had received four offers thus far. "Not unusual in this market," he said. "There have been well over 20 showings on it."

"The coolest thing is more than half of the gym floor is still gym — the original floor, the original bleachers, the original basketball goal," Wilson added. "I graduated from that gym in 1969. I could tell you where I was sitting."
There is one thing any prospective buyer should know, though: "It still smells like a gym," Wilson said.
