Oct. 01, 2012, 12 a.m. (ET)

Have you witnessed a player on the field exhibit terrific sportsmanship towards her opponent? Do you know a youth softball coach who went the extra step in a particular game or tournament and really demonstrated responsibility? Sadly it’s the negative moments in sports that get all of the attention. But together with Liberty Mutual Insurance and Positive Coaching Alliance, we are on a mission to celebrate the positive moments that we know happen every day in youth softball. We want to have these Responsible Sports Moments gain the same national media that those negative moments get.

Nominate a moment of sportsmanship that you have witnessed and that organization could be named one of the Top 10 Responsible Sports Moments of 2012, be featured in national media and earn the organization a $1,000 donation in honor of that moment. It doesn’t have to be a grand gestures or achievements; it can be an everyday, simple examplethat we strive to instill in our players and encourage.

Nominate a Responsible Sports Moment at ResponsibleSports.com/Top10Momentsbefore November 15th to have your softball moment recognized!
