LIBERAL, Kan. (KSNW) – The Liberal Bee Jays will unveil a statue dedicated in memory of 9-year-old Kaiser Carlile Friday night in Liberal. The life-sized statue will be dedicated ahead of the 7 p.m. game with the Kansas Cannons.

In the final week of competition last summer, Carlile lost his life in an accident at the NBC World Series.

In memory, the Bee Jays will forever memorialize Kaiser at Brent Gould Field. The statue will sit next to the third base side of the press box. Staff members at Seward County Community College are also working on a sign that will permanently hang on the Brent Gould Field wall to remember Kaiser.
