Transcript for Prayers and Sorrow for 9-Year-Old Bat Boy Killed by Bat
We turn to the heartbreaking moment on the diamond V baseball diamond. A 9-year-old boy killed over the weekend, hit in the head with a bat. This image of his team huddled in prayer. Here is ABC's linsey Davis. Reporter: Prayers and sorrow tonight for this freckle-faced 9 year old -- the volunteer bat boy in a Kansas summer league for college players. Kaiser Carlile was doing what he loved Saturday night running out to the field as he had done so many times before to get a bat on the ground. But the batter never saw him and while taking a practice swing he hit Carlile in the head. Carlile was wearing a helmet, but the trauma was severe. Still, the team played on. He would want us to go out there and have fun and play hard. Reporter: The shaken players taking a knee though, huddling in prayer after learning of his death. Today, the national baseball congress says it will no longer use batboys or girls for the remainder of the world series games in Wichita. And one remembers him in an instagram post as a little brother I never had. Lindsay, thank you.
