A middle school baseball player from Wilmington has died after being hit by a line drive during practice.
New Hanover County school officials say that Alex Newsome, a 12-year-old pitcher, was throwing batting practice Friday afternoon at Roland-Grise Middle School when he was hit in the head.
Coaches performed CPR on the youth until emergency crews arrived but he died a few hours later at an area hospital.
The district said it would have counselors available for students or school staff members who need it.
