In spring training, frequently the teams allow the kids to play with the veterans this way. It allows them to get game experience against major leaguers and be able to talk to the vets about their performances. I like the idea because the vets get to see how the kids handle situations that they might be called upon to handle during the season if a regular gets hurt.
