A routine ground ball to the shortstop seemed to end it. The Wylie player picked up the grounder and flipped it to second base for the apparent out, triggering the team's celebration of the district championship.
The runner at second was never called out, and McKinney’s players continued to circle the bases. The Wylie team celebrated before realizing the runner was not called out and the game wasn't over. They scrambled for the ball but by that time three runs had scored, ending the game with a victory for McKinney.
The Wylie team looked on in shock.
It was a sports memory neither team likely will ever forget.
