Let me introduce myself! My name is Richard Batey, and I am a homeschooling father of four (k-12). My 2 oldest have now completed degrees in Economics and Business Administration from Texas State University. My third is currently a sophomore at Texas State. My youngest is a senior in high school and competes on the FEAST Patriots baseball team. I am a Research Analyst at Texas State University, and I submitted my life to Christ Jesus at age 12.

As a homeschooling dad, I appreciate the life lessons athletics provides for our kids. They are introduced to an authority outside of the home. They learn to work within a group. Hopefully, they learn of how hard work, training, teamwork, and leadership bring improvement of skills and  accomplishment of goals. I especially appreciate lessons of humility in baseball. We all strikeout, we all make errors, and we all need forgiveness.
For the team to succeed, players must learn performance improves when mistakes are greeted with forgiveness and encouragement.

As commissioner, I hope to field two high school teams, a Varsity and a JV. If numbers permit, we may do the same in middle school. We are currently scheduling games and hope to secure at least 30 for the Varsity. At present, we have entered 3 tournaments and may add a fourth. Middle school will continue to participate in the ISAL league, which will end with a championship tournament.

My overall vision for FEAST baseball is to be competitive with higher levels of opponents. Last year’s leadership acquired us entrance into the prestigious Border Olympics Tournament in Laredo. In doing so, we were able to compete against 5 and 6A schools like Veterans Memorial in Corpus (5A top ten, L 9-3) and Austin High (6A top 15, L 4-0). These may have been losses on our schedule, but they were victories for our program.
We went on to win our next tournament and 7 games in a row. We have been invited back and hope to attend again this year.

I look forward to hearing from all interested in promoting FEAST baseball.

September 2020

FEAST Athletics was truly blessed by the leadership team we had for the 2019-20 baseball season. Hunter and Kitty Kennemer were amazing!

Unfortunately, due to Covid19 and the pressure being placed on Hunter with his regular job, the Kennemers will not be returning for the 2020-21 FEAST baseball season. Please join the Athletics Office in thanking them for their service and wishing them well!

FEAST Athletics once again finds itself in search of a Commissioner for the upcoming baseball season – the Baseball Commissioner will work in partnership with the Athletics Administrator to maintain, organize, and administer the FEAST Baseball program. They are responsible for the overall direction of the program as well as ensuring compliance with all-league and FEAST Athletics policies, procedures, rules, and regulations. If there are no applicants for the Commissioner position, then FEAST Baseball cannot be offered until such time as a Commissioner is found.

If you or anyone you know is interested in applying for the Commissioner position, please fill out the application found on the FEAST Athletics page

We plan to have our Varsity team return to compete in both the Laredo Border Olympics and Blanco County tournaments. Through the summer and early fall, we will continue to fill in our schedule with local and extended game competition. Stay tuned for further scheduling updates regarding informational meetings, registration opening/closing, skills evaluations, and the season start.
