Peninsula Pilots Baseball, Hampton, VA, continues to pilot the search for a cure for Niemann-Pick C in memory of their fallen Beloved Batboy, Kevin Eadie (Angel in the Dugout) at the 8th Annual Kevin Eadie Night, War Memorial Stadium, Sat. Jul 25 '09
Proceeds from Saturday nights game will be donated to the Kevin Eadie Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to support research for finding a cure for Niemann-Pick Type C (NP-C) disease. (www.helpkevin.org)
Kevin was the Peninsula Pilots Batboy from 2002-2008 while heroically battling this cruel & fatal children's disorder. During Kevin's 1st season as Batboy, he diligently ran after the bats despite occasional falls and attended all of the Home games. He was honored with the title of MVP during that season. Kevin's love of the game, and team, along with his fun-loving sweet spirit and courage, has been an inspiration to the players, fans, as well as the community. Many believe Kevin always brought good luck to the team... their 'Angel in the Dugout'. Kevin died at the age of 14 on Nov. 12, 2008. His last baseball game was the Peninsula Pilots 2008 season's ending game in full uniform.
