Not a little. He chewed on his bats so much that he was actually injured when a splinter from one went so deeply into his tongue that a doctor needed to called in to pluck it out.
"Almost every bat we have around our bench has got Mr. Chase's teethmarks on it," the bat boy was quoted as saying according to the new book "The Baseball Hall of Shame: The Best of Blooperstown."
"He just sorta gnaws on them."
Chase didn't learn his lesson -- he continued to chew on bats.
