WICHITA, Kansas – The Wichita Wingnuts, in partnership with the National Baseball Congress, have plans to construct a memorial at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium to honor the memory of Liberal Bee Jays bat boy Kaiser Carlile.

There are five different ticket packages available for the 7:05 p.m. game, each featuring a different sized donation to the memorial fund.
The following is a list of the options with donations included in the total cost:

In addition, a silent auction featuring autographed sports memorabilia will take place in the concourse from the time the gates open (6:05 p.m.) until the end of the 7th inning. Some of the items up for bid will be a bat signed by former Bee Jay Hunter Pence, a Miguel Cabrera autographed bat, five jerseys signed by current members of the Kansas City Royals, a football autographed by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson, and a baseball-themed fish tank that Pete Rose had custom-built on the television show “Tanked”.

Items put up for auction will have reserve prices. If the bids at the park do not surpass those reserves, the items will be auctioned online. All proceeds will benefit the Kaiser Carlile Memorial.
