2020 SUMMER SEASON CANCELED

Last Night we made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 summer season. We are not willing to put our players, coaches, umpires, and specators at risk of contracting COVID-19. In addition, our insurance carrier will not cover COVID-19 related claims. As painful as this decision is, it is the right decision for everyone's safety. Any payments made for summer will be refunded.

We are not ruling out a fall season. We will continue to monitor State and Local decisions on what is allowable, and if we can find we can play safely and with insurance coverage, we will run a fall program.

We appreciate everyone's support, and we will keep you informed as we get closer to fall.

 

Regards,

March 19, 2020 Update

To our Club Reps, Managers, and Coaches:

We are living in unprecedented times. Every day is bringing new challenges and great uncertainty. We are hopeful we will be able to present a summer program, but for now, we recommend no baseball activitied while schools remain closed and the state of emergency exists.

We are putting a hold on organizing the summer season. Teams may continue to register at kokinisbaseball.com. If you have not sent in a deposit, please hold off until we determine our direction. We are postponing all meetings until we know what the CIAC plans for spring sports.

For now, observe social distancing and heed the direction of state, federal, and local authorities.

We will answer your questions as best we can, please contact any of our Directors or Supervisors.

Stay Safe!

 

Regards,

Dan Turkeltaub

League History

70 Years of Baseball History

The Pete Kokinis Life Baseball League prides itself on its philosophy that players should develop skills, develop an appreciation for the game of baseball, and, most importantly, to have fun. Thousands of Connecticut teens have helped make our League one of the largest and oldest independent baseball programs in the country. Below are some of the articles and artifacts we've gathered over the past 70 years. The collection is growing, if you'd like to contribute, please contact Dan Turkeltaub, dan.turkeltaub@gmail.com. Our League History page contains a list of alumni whom have gone on to Collegiate, Minor, and Major League success.
