The Agony of Defeat
In the 2011 15U World Baseball Tournament Gold Medal Game, Japan National rallies from a 6-4 deficit against Japan Khushu in the bottom of the 7th to tie the game and send it into extra innings. National ends up winning 8-7 in dramatic fashion. The beauty of this game is the way both teams played with passion and pride. After the winning run scores, The Khushu Parents, Players and Coaches are at their best. The video and pictures speak for itself about losing, victory, and grace. It was my privilege to witness for two weeks, and especially this championship game, the way the game of baseball was meant to be played and respected. We all can learn from it.
