MEBANE, N.C. — 11-year-old Braydon Smith knows his way around a baseball diamond.
As a player for the Burlington Pirates, he's had some training swinging a bat...but he never thought that training would be useful to him off the field.
Friday morning, he was home alone when a stranger knocked on his front door.
"I was hiding behind my door, I didn't answer the door," said Braydon.
Braydon says a man then burst through the front door and found him in his room.
