Thank you, Kim Hudson.

She’s an attorney, mother of three children, a big supporter of children’s charities and a proud 1996 Auburn University graduate. She also is the wife of Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson, a former Auburn star who suffered a fractured ankle during a play at first base Wednesday against the Mets.

Kim’s husband will be out of the game for about a year as he recovers from the injury, which happened when the Mets’ Eric Young Jr. accidently stepped on Hudson’s ankle.

Young was visibly upset about the injury to Hudson. However, Kim reached out to him through Twitter, thanking him: “Thank you for playing the game the right way. You're obviously one of the good guys. We appreciate you.”

It was a classy thing to do, especially at a time when nobody would blame her for worrying about nothing more than her husband and family. She took a moment to make sure Young knew she harbored no grudges.

Auburn is lucky to have her as one of its graduates.
