The KCLL Fall Baseball season runs from late August to late October. The program focuses on fun and developmental progress. Games are less competitive in nature - and while we keep score, we do not keep standings or crown league champions. Fall baseball is all about learning the game a bit better.
We are planning to have Fall Baseball programs available at all levels from Tee Ball to Intermediate (50/70).
Our Fall Ball registration will open very soon! So, check back in a few days - and register for our Fall Baseball program.

KCLL'S TOURNAMENT ENDS WITH A TOUGH LOSS TO TRI-LAKES
The Ken Caryl 12U Cardinals played Tri Lakes in a consolation bracket game, trying to get back to the finals. KCLL and Tri Lakes traded runs, with the game tied into the 5th inning. But a late run by Tri Lakes couldn't be matched and KCLL lost 16-15. Congrats to the team on a good tournament effort!!
KCLL BATTLES ACADEMY INTO THE 6TH INNING
The Ken Caryl 12U Cardinals played Academy in a semi-finals game. KCLL battled hard through 5 innings coming back twice during the game and was down just one run going into the 6th inning. Academy bats found the ball in the 6th and put the game out of reach in the top of the inning. On Friday, KCLL will play the winner of Thu's Cherry Creek v Tri Lakes game.
KCLL BEATS HPLL TO ADVANCE TO THE SEMI-FINALS
The Ken Caryl 12U Cardinals are flying high, winning their second straight game in the District 5 All Star tournament. The Cardinals defeated the High Plains All Stars 6-1 under the lights in Arapahoe on Tuesday July 7th. This sets up a Wednesday night showdown against perennial powerhouse Academy Little League of Colorado Springs. Ken Caryl and Academy are the only undefeated teams in the tournament.
In the victory over High Plains, Ken Caryl rode the arm of Luke Schoon, who pitched 5 1/3 stronginnings, notching 18 strikeouts against no walks. High Plains managed only 1 hit against Schoon over that stretch. Bennett Gregory came in and struck out the last two batters to close out the game. The Cardinals bats maintained their steady pace, producing two runs in each of the first three innings to stake a 6-0 lead after three innings of play with six different Cardinals plating the runs.Brody Jordan and Schoon had two hits apiece to pace Ken Caryl. And Bennett Gregory, James Ramey, Bryson Harper, Zane Smith and Colton Gregory each collected a hit to contribute to the attack.
The Cardinals will again play under the lights with an 8pm game on Wed July 8th against Academy LL. The winner of that game will advance to the Championship game on Saturday. Please come out and cheer on your Ken Caryl Cardinals All Stars!

Being a Little Leaguer is not easy. The science proves it. So the next time you feel like yelling out to your kid because he struck out or walked a batter with bases loaded, remember that it is harder to be a Little Leaguer than a Pro! Check this video out:
