Bigger Than Sports

This category is for those moments that transcend sports. Like when Steve Gleason's blocked punt resurrected New Orleans in their first game back at the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina, or when the New York Jets and New York Giants united a nation with emotional wins after 9/11, or when Dee Gordon hit a tributary homerun for late teammate José Fernández.

When these unscripted moments happen you just know the significance because you get goosebumps from the electrifying roar of the crowd. These moments bring a strong sense of unity within the communities involved, and compassion from people watching all over the world.
