Small but Strong: Paige runs the bases at McCoy Stadium

Small But Strong

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — Small but Strong alum Paige Alston shines every day, but she got a chance to take the spotlight on a pretty big stage.

The 5-year-old ran the bases at Saturday’s PawSox game, high-fiving players before jumping into her dad’s arms.

Paige was born with an omphalocele, an abdominal wall defect which caused her stomach, intestines and a portion of her liver to develop in a sac outside of her body.

She’s successfully undergone more than 20 surgeries since, so she clearly had a reason to celebrate with the players!
