Ty Koehn, the pitcher for Mounds View High School in Minnesota, struck out Totino-Grace's last batter of the game. But as his teammates celebrated, Ty ran to hug the batter, his childhood friend Jack Kocon.

Ty said it was the right thing to do, and his friend will never forget it.

"I told him I loved him and he's my brother and our friendship will always last longer than this silly game," said Ty.
