Cleveland Indians bat boys to wear black wristbands to remember child killed in August


In coordination with the Major League Baseball Clubhouse Managers Association, Cleveland Indians bat boys — and all across Major League Baseball — will wear black wristbands on Sunday to remember 9-year-old Kansas native Kaiser Carlile, who was killed in August after being struck by a player’s swing.

Kaiser was the 9-year-old bat boy for a Kansas baseball team who died August 2, one day after he was accidentally struck by a bat during a game.

Kaiser, the bat boy for the Liberal Bee Jays summer team in Liberal, Kansas, was struck in the head as a player took practice swings during their game the day before.

Carlile was wearing a helmet.
