KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – It’s an age-old tradition in baseball, kids lace ’em up and suit up as bat boys for their bigger, stronger counter parts.
A lot of teams and franchises have done without them, but this week in Kinston…the bat boy is back.
WNCT’s Patrick Quinn takes you inside the dugout at Historic Grainger Stadium and brings you this light-hearted story.
Big thanks to the bat boys: McKinnon Wade, Chase Sutton, Easton Truett, and Cooper Emory on their help with this story.
The Region X Tournament continues Monday with the championship on Wednesday. For a complete schedule, click here.
