EARLSBORO – The Earlsboro Wildcats picked up a 5-3 win over Sasakwa Thursday. What one Earlsboro player did after the game goes beyond the sport.
Chance Bohanon wasn't playing due to a knee injury when he heard about Sasakwa's Alex Selby.
Selby was playing his last game of his career due to a surgery scheduled for Friday.
When Chance heard about Selby's situation, he wanted to do something special for his opponent. Bohannon had his teammates sign a baseball that they presented to Selby after the game.
“I know I won't leave a legacy on the field here at Earlsboro, so I wanted to do something off the field that would make an impact,” Bohannon said.
Bohannon's coach, Dillon Atkinson, was more than impressed with his player's effort to do something special.
“Tonight was one of those nights that really made me love what I do,” Atkinson said. “Wins and losses aside, a team filled with this kind of character will always be a champion.”
The teams gathered around home plate after the game and said a prayer.
