Bee Jays Will Unveil Kaiser Carlile Statue June 3 in Opener

Opening day 2016 for the Liberal Bee Jays Summer Collegiate Baseball Club will be a tough one. In their final week of competition last summer, the Bee Jays lost their beloved bat boy Kaiser Carlile to a tragic accident at the NBC World Series. On June 3rd, the Bee Jays will forever memorialize Kaiser at Brent Gould Field, the Bee Jays home for the summer, as they unveil a life sized statue of the nine year old prior to their 7:00 game with the Kansas Cannons.
The statue will sit to the third base side of the press box at Brent Gould Field so all of the faithful Bee Jay fans that come to the park each summer evening can see the big smile on Kaiser’s face and remember a key piece to Liberal’s 2015 squad. Staff members at Seward County Community College are also working on a sign that will permanently hang on the Brent Gould Field wall to remember Kaiser.
