Ken's enthusiasm for the game is what made us into one of the most competitive team's ever to come out of Ketchikan. Between Ken and Tommy Craig they have turned more teams into Champions then I can count, they never once taught us that winning was everything, but that winning and losing with class was.
Tommy Craig and Ken taught more about life lessons through baseball than any of us could have possible learned in school. The lessons taught on the fields in Ketchikan should never be compromised, by someone's child who just can't take a grounder in the face or line drive in the shins, or wait to eat until after the game, I know it's a cruel game, but if we don't install the basic fundamentals of the game into our kids now while they are young, Sitka and Juneau are going to come here each year and kick our backsides in, our baseball players needs all the good coaches we can get, please throw away your differences and come together as a community our children our depending on us.
If we do not make changes or at least adjustments our future baseball players will never make it out of Southeast, which in the most competitive three teams in the state if we can get past Sitka and Juneau we can go all the way, we have proven that time and time again.
