South Korean and Illinois Little League World Series Players Do Handshake

Earlier during the Little League World Series, we saw an Illinois player exhibit fantastic sportsmanship by giving a high five to an opposing player who had just hit a home run. 

After losing 8-4 to the South Korean team in the LLWS championship game, we saw another example of these guys having their priorities straight.

While in line for handshakes, one of the players from the Chicago-based Jackie Robinson West squad taught one of his South Korean opponents an elaborate handshake. 

It's great to see that even players competing at the highest level can respect each other.
