A female baseball player, having hit the only home run of her college career, injured her knee in attempting to run the bases and could barely manage
a painful crawl. Her opponents carried her so she could complete the required circuit of the bases.
Here is an article.
Rounders, a girls game.
No, it's not, duckie!
I think that the competitive nature of most males in sports would have not meant assistance from the opposing team. Instead, I think the hitter's
teammates would have yelled and cheered to encourage him to crawl around the bases, in spite of the pain. And, I think a great many young men would
have cowboyed up and done it.
It is perhaps worth noting, as one can read toward the end of the article, that the rules actually allowed for another runner to run the bases and score after such an injury, but the people on site did not have the right understanding of the rules.
We'd never hijack a thread, giron, that is, unless it';s about a pretty girl who made a home carry!
She couldn't run, so we can't call it a home run!
