(CNN)A 9-year-old who was hit with a bat during a baseball game in Kansas over the weekend has died.

Kaiser Carlile, a batboy for the Liberal Bee Jays team, was accidentally struck Saturday at a National Baseball Congress World Series game.

"With the permission of the family, and with much sorrow and a very broken heart, I regretfully inform everyone that Kaiser Carlile passed away earlier this evening," the team said in a statement.

"Please keep his family and our team in your thoughts and prayers."

Kaiser was a batboy for the team, which is a summer league for college players.

One of the batters accidentally hit him during a warmup swing as the boy was retrieving a bat, according to team president Nathan McCaffrey.
