A true act of sportsmanship was caught on camera in Minnesota during a high school baseball game.

It happened after the pitcher, Ty Koehn, struck out his friend, Jack Kocon, who was on the opposing team.

After the strikeout, Koehn's teammates rush toward the mound to celebrate the win, but he decided to put off the celebration for a few minutes. Instead of joining in with his teammates, Koehn ran from the mound to home plate to console his friend.

Koehn and Kocon played little league together before they ended up going to different high schools in Minneapolis. However, they've stayed closed friends. Koehn says he wanted his friend to know their friendship is more important than the outcome of the game.
