If you happen to be a hotshot Major League Baseball player that thinks showing off and bragging is important, you could learn a thing or two from a Midwest little leaguer who was hit in the head by a pitch and then got up and consoled the pitcher.

I saw this special display of sportsmanship trending on Digg today. There's a good reason why there are already over 2.8 million views on Twitter. Shared today by Jomboy, it shows the batter getting hit in a dangerous area between his ear and forehead knocking his helmet off. After lying on the ground and composing himself, he gets up and goes to first base where he notices the pitcher is extremely shook up at this terrifying close call. Watch what happens next is pure sportsmanship.
