Somebody To Look Up To

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.
