KINGSMEN READY FOR 2023
The 2023 edition of Kingsmen Baseball is almost here. Kingsmen founder and head coach Joe Hudak is excited to welcome the players to Rock Hill. “It’s going to be another great summer for the Kingsmen”, the veteran baseball skipper said. “This summer will be different than most of our previous summers and will be similar to our 2021 summer”. The Kingsmen have played in the Southern Collegiate Baseball League all but one of their 8 years of existence. This summer, they will be playing as an independent team that will not play in the SCBL. “We wanted to do some more traveling, much like we did in 2021”, Hudak continued. “The summer will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our guys”. The Kingsmen itinerary is:
June 1-7 Carolinas – games against CPL, SCBL, and Independent Teams
June 8-18 Alaska – games against Alaska Collegiate League Teams
June 19-July 9 Carolinas – games against CPL, SCBL, and Independent Teams
July 10-22 – Dominican Republic – Mission Trip and games against Dominican Teams
Kingsmen Baseball is a Christian baseball ministry that sponsors faith-based teams and takes players and coaches on mission trips. They have team Bible studies, go to church together, and go on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Their mission statement is to use the great game of baseball to help young men:
Grow in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ
Become the best baseball players they can be
Grow into men of character and integrity
The team will play their home games at York Comprehensive High School again this summer. Hudak is grateful for the partnership with the York School District. “Athletic Director Joey Moore and Head Baseball Coach Matt Deegan have been great to work with over the years”, Hudak stated. “Their facility is top-notch and they are great men to work with”.
