Kingston Baseball

Head coach: Ralph Milleson

2018 record: 9-10 (5-7)

Key players: Tim Melzer, sr., pitcher/first base; Jack Hermanson, jr., pitcher/third base; Tyler Bates, sr., catcher/second base; Adam Rappaport, sr., pitcher/first base; Nickyle Tucker, sr., catcher/outfield; Peter Zweifelhofer, sr., first base; Phillip Uptain, sr., infield; Garrett Sitting Dog, jr., third base/pitcher; Andrew Ives, jr., infield/pitcher; Aaron Purser, jr., outfield.

Outlook: The Bucs made the district playoffs last year and made a nice run, falling just a little short of a state playoff berth. The program graduated a few really good offensive players, but it still has a 1-2 punch on the mound in Melzer and Hermanson. With that kind of pitching, the Bucs should be in most games this year.
