Team Info:Kensington Valley is a new team for the 2014 season. The coaching staff is returning for a second year in the KVBSA and has 25+ seasons of coaching travel sports at this age group.

All returning players from last years team will be trying out for the 2014 season. Our placement in the KVBSA will be determined after tryouts and a few workouts.

Our coaching staff will have specialties in Pitching, Catching, Corner Infield, Middle Infield, Outfield, Baserunning and even a specialist for physical training.

Players will learn to develop at a position they are suited best for as well as a back up position. We feel players develop at a better rate when they identify with a main position.

We are not a "Win at all cost" program, yet we teach the importance of preparing each player both mentally and physically so they are in the best position for success.

We promise each player will end the season in a state of preparation to compete at the next level.
Coaching Staff:As an Independent team, keeping costs low and offering the best overall value is a top priority. Fundraising and Sponsorships are created and run by the coaching staff and team Managers.
This IS the team for you if T>E>A>M, Loyalty and dedication to development are what you expect from an organization. 35-45 Games total, with Parents and Staff voting on what tournaments we attend.
We will also play "Cross League" games, as we did last season to compete against the best of the best. The KVBSA is the best league in the world for youth players to develop within.

Building a strong program foundation includes having the best facilities, professional coaching and unlimited access to play.

Here at Martin Baseball, we believe we are laying the groundwork for that premier winning program.

It is our goal as we enter our third season that our efforts will attract the best in youth baseball talent and the most supportive of baseball families.

Our all inclusive approach will allow the most talented of athletes the ability to improve their baseball skills day in and day out.

At the same time, having access to all Martin Baseball and the Michigan Expos have to provide.
