Somebody To Look Up To

Leo Eckman, left, waited for his turn while Nick Stratton, both 7 and of Jasper, received eye black under his eyes from senior Nick Gobert of the Jasper varsity baseball team in the Wildcats’ dugout before Tuesday night’s game against Forest Park at Ruxer Field in Jasper. Leo and Nick were honorary bat boys for the Wildcats and had the opportunity to shag fly balls and take batting practice before the game as well as sit in the dugout with the team during the game. The two won the opportunity during The Hoot fundraising auction in February that benefited Holy Family School. The Wildcats beat the Rangers 6-3.
