A member of the West Orange Babe Ruth 8U team, Kinley Casey is a multi-tool player who spends his time either on the mound or out at second base. A fan of the Atlanta Braves and Red Sox, Casey’s biggest highlight of his young baseball-playing career is hitting an in-the-park home run during a game.
I like fielding and batting — I like that I get to hit the ball.
Not doing the right thing. Making the throw to the base — (the hardest part is) how high or low I throw it.
I’ve played for three years. And yeah, I’ve played outfield, shortstop and third before.
I have a favorite team and player — I like the Atlanta Braves and the Boston Red Sox, and my favorite player is Freddie Freeman (he’s on the Braves). I just like him.
Except for pitcher? Shortstop — yeah, (it comes at you fast) but I could go get the ball.
Yeah, but I like other sports. I like football and hockey — in hockey I like the (Boston) Bruins and in football I like the (New England) Patriots.
My hitting, because this machine comes in really fast. It’s right down the middle usually.
I like to play outside and play video games — I play a lot.
Usually pizza. I like a regular plain cheese pizza (from) the Winter Garden Pizza Company.
The (Atlanta) Braves’ ballpark — I haven’t been to either one (the old or new stadium).
I got to (go on the field and) put the rosin bag up there on the pitcher’s mound. I was nervous.
An infield home run. I hit it to the fence and I went all the way around.
