Baseball Saviors: The high school baseball team that lifted a car to save a life
On May 8, 2013 in the parking lot of Sacramento’s Valley High School, a student’s mom was picking her daughter up when she hit a car in front of her. Panicked, she quickly reversed, not realizing her daughter was directly behind the car. The girl was hit and became trapped under the car. Meanwhile, Valley’s varsity and junior varsity baseball teams were having their last practice of the season nearby. They heard desperate screams for help. The team sprinted toward the parking lot, jumping over fences to get there. About a dozen of the players surrounded the car, lifting the four-door sedan off of the girl. The teams’ assistant coach pulled the girl out and she was sent to a hospital, where she was reportedly expected to recover. Co-head coach Brett Sawyer said he was proud of the boys’ brave actions. “To be honest, we might not have the best baseball team around, but we sure do have a great group of guys.”
