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.
