Ten-year-old Vaughn Guilfoile plays for two different baseball teams— a Little League team and a traveling team — and comes from a big baseball family.
via: TwitterHis grandfather Bill Guilfoyle was Associate Director and Director of Public Relations at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum for years. And his dad Kevin Guilfoile is a writer who penned a memoir called A Drive Into the Gap, about his memories connecting him to his father and to the sport of baseball. Vaughn's traveling team needed a name, and the adults in charge thought Vaughn and his teammates could come up with a good name themselves. They were right. They hit it out of the park. That would be "The Illuminati."
Their patches are legit.
via: TwitterKevin is pretty sure the kids only know about the Illuminati from the jokes made about it on the Internet. He told BuzzFeed News, "They know it as a joke. They don't really know what it is." But hey, if it works for Beyoncé and Jay-Z, might as well work for this team of young baseballers.
