Unless you’re related or he’s your buddy nobody notices the batboys during a Major League game. Tell that to this young lad who played batboy for the Minnesota Twins during Tuesday night’s game in Chicago. His sole job on this play was to grab Ryan Doumit’s bat following a walk.

And like I said, nobody notices a batboy, that is, until he does this…

I’d say that the White Sox sent the batboy out to slide tackle Doumit, but with the Twins 11.5 games out of first, nobody really cares about them anymore. Had it been Miguel Cabrera…

The company is MaxBat, and it was formed in the early 2000s when Jim Anderson started making bats in his basement after his son, Max, was born in 2001.

Mauer admits part-time first base duty has value

Joe Mauer was cool to the idea of playing first base when the Minnesota Twins initially gave him time there last season as a way of keeping the catcher in the lineup while preserving his legs. But after he started there for the 26th time this year Monday night, Mauer has now started more games this season as a first baseman or a DH than he has as a catcher. The three-time batting...
