ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota high school pitcher consoled his friend after striking him out in a playoff game.
Mounds View pitcher Ty Koehn struck out Jack Kocon of Totino-Grace to end the game in the Class 4A, Section 5 baseball final last week. The win touched off a celebration near home plate as Mounds View advanced to the state tournament.
But before joining his teammates in the celebration, Koehn consoled Kocon at home plate.
This high school pitcher held off celebrating with his teammates so he could console his childhood friend instead.
