Pitcher Strikes Out Best Friend, Hugs Him

When childhood friends played against each other on opposing teams at a recent Minnesota high school baseball playoff game, pitcher Ty Koehn stuck out his buddy Jack Kocon. It won the game for Ty’s team, allowing them to advance to the state tournament. And when his fellow players ran onto the field to celebrate their win, he went in the opposite direction…towards his friend.

Jack said,  “I was just thinking in 20 years I’m not gonna remember the score of that game. But I’m gonna remember him coming up to me after that and just kind of being there for me when I needed someone.”
