Message from the Coach

The Kent Baseball program has had a proud and rich tradition over the past several decades. Kent  Baseball competes in the talent laded Founders League which is traditionally known as one of the strongest leagues in the New England Area, and the country.  

The baseball team plays a very competitive 16 game schedule (16 Founders League games). There are two levels of play for baseball players to participate in while at Kent (Varsity, Junior Varsity). Every player at each level will receive outstanding coaching and will be provided with the opportunity to learn, develop and improve their baseball skills on a daily basis. 

Kent baseball players in recent years have gone on to play at college and professional ranks.  

Coaching Staff

The Lions Baseball program is led by Head Coach Jake Bennett, currently in his 4th year at Kent.  Coach Bennett is a ’13 graduate of the Noble and Greenough School where he was an all-ISL selection for multiple years.  He then went on to play for Bryan Adamski at Trinity College. During his college career, Coach Bennett played a versatile role for the Bantams, playing third and first base, as well as catcher. While attending Trinity, Coach Bennett ('17) also worked as a member of the Team South East coaching staff for the Bay State Games.  As an Assistant to Coach Murray (Noble and Greenough Varsity Baseball Coach), Coach Bennett worked with the infielders and hitters in the evaluating and coaching process.  In Coach Bennett’s 4 years as an assistant he helped South East win 2 Gold Medals, a Silver and a Bronze.  He has also assisted in the NCAA recruitment and commitment of nearly 60 players from the greater Massachusetts area. At Kent, Coach Bennett works in Admissions, is an advisor and dorm parent, and coaches Varsity Boys' Hockey.

Program Philosophy

The baseball program has been built on the belief that a team who is fundamentally sound and mentally tough is hard to beat. Coach Bennett expects his players to be prepared physically and mentally for every practice and every game. Kent baseball players are expected to act in a manner both on and off the field that their team, their school and their family can be proud of.
