COVID-19 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

Director of Operations

With our new name we have a new logo and League Patch, which must be on all uniforms. 

We encourage all teams to silkscreen our patch onto shirts. The size of the patch is 3.5" by 3.5". A file is available for your uniform vendor in the Documents section of our website. Sew-on patches will be available at our League meetings, while suppiles last, at no cost.

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.
