Wow, he brushed by his catcher who was trying to hug him in victory. Good thing he went back to the mound later to join the team celebration.

Nice story though. Sportsmanship is not a factor; these guys are friends and of course striking out a stranger and then hugging him would be a bit strange. But aside from sportsmanship, it's nice to see something more important than winning at all costs.
