World Series Ball Raises 30K for Carlile’s Memorial

KSCB News - September 21, 2015 12:30 pm

LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) – The sale of a 1962 autographed World Series baseball has raised $30,000 for a memorial statue honoring the 9-year-old Kansas batboy who died when he was accidentally hit by a bat.

Kaiser Carlile, batboy for the Liberal Bee Jays, died Aug. 2, a day after he was hit in the head by a player’s swing near the on-deck circle during a National Baseball Congress World Series game in Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1OpLpbM ) reports that Randy Watson, whose 13-year-old brother Rudy died in 1966 after a foul ball struck his head at a baseball game, donated the ball to a silent auction because of the similarities between Kaiser and Rudy.

The autographed baseball from the 1962 New York Yankees will be displayed at the Seward Community College in Liberal.
