KBA Announces Rep Coaches for 2017

KBA Announces Rep Team Coaches

The KBA is pleased to announce that we will be fielding 4 competitive rep teams in two different leagues for the 2017 season.

We feel that Little League provides a great culture for our younger players to learn the game and still play competitive baseball within a relatively close proximity to the Kingston area.   We would encourage you to learn more about Little League by going to their website below:
