Emotional Pearland pitcher gets hug from player he hit with pitch in viral Little League moment

PEARLAND, Texas (KTRK) -- With a whole town tuning in Tuesday, Pearland Little League fulfilled its journey back to the Little League World Series with a 9-4 victory over Tulsa, Oklahoma in the Southwest Regional Final.

Pearland ran the table en route to its fourth World Series berth in 12 years, going 13-0 from district, state, and regional levels.

The moment that may be most talked about from Tuesday's game involved Pearland pitcher Kaiden Shelton who threw an errant pitch that hit Tulsa batter Isiah Jarvis in the head.

Jarvis was on the ground for several minutes as coaches and trainers checked on him.

Meanwhile, Shelton was distraught over what happened. After Jarvis walked to first base under his own power, he called for time, went to the mound, and embraced and comforted Kaiden.
