Sign those kids!

Jim Rice: step aside, because this is what it means to be a feared hitter:

A pair of 8-year-olds armed with baseball bats are being credited with stopping a man who had put a gun to a woman’s face and threatened to kill her

The two boys came to the woman’s rescue on Sunday shortly before 7 p.m. as the woman was leaving her home in the 1400 block of SE 2nd Avenue with her 8-year-old son and his 8-year old friend.

The woman and the boys told police that Bradley hit the woman on the back of the head with a handgun that was inside a black sock, then took the gun out of the sock.

The woman and the children told police the two boys “attacked the defendant with baseball bats, which stopped the attack.” Bradley then left.

I sure hope they weren’t maple bats, though. Those things are dangerous.

    It’s January, the NFL just played their championship games, hockey and basketball are in full swing and pitchers and catchers haven’t even packed yet (heck some haven’t signed yet) and two 8 year old kids have baseball bats with them.  Now that’s what I’m talking about – baseball is back.
