“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Psalm 133:1
Baseball season will be starting before you know it!
Here are some tips to make the start a smooth one!
- Register for/Renew your Patriot Pass as soon as possible. Check to make sure your contact info is current and then pay for your Pass using PayPal, Venmo, or by check or cash in our offices. Once your Pass is paid for it can take up to 48 business hours to be activated. Our offices are open Monday-Thursday 10am to 4pm. If you apply for your Pass on Thursday night after 4pm it will not be approved until Monday when the offices open.
- Pay only through the payment links provided. There are QR codes available on the Athletic Registration page as well as on the registration itself.
- Register your student-athlete for their specific sport. Log into your Patriot Pass account using your user name. Once you have logged in you will need to click on the Patriot Pass page link at the top of the page, then the Athletic Registrations link found in the middle of the page.
- Enjoy your season!
HERE ARE SOME KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER:
- YOUR PATRIOT PASS CANNOT BE ACTIVATED IF NOT PAID FOR.
- YOU CANNOT REGISTER FOR THE REGULAR SEASON IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PAID PATRIOT PASS.
This does not include skills camp or summer league – those do not require a Patriot Pass to participate.
- YOUR STUDENT-ATHLETE MAY NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES IN THE REGULAR SEASON, INCLUDING PRACTICES OR GAMES, IF THEY ARE NOT REGISTERED THROUGH OUR ONLINE SYSTEM.
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
FEAST Baseball is currently accepting applications for High School and Middle School coaches who wish to serve in the 2021 season. If you or someone you know is interested, please submit all applications, as soon as possible, online at homeschoolfeast.com/athletics. If you have questions or need more information, email Hunter Kennemer at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Sherri Kunkel at (210)342-4674.
In the meantime, we are working on our Varsity Patriots’ 2021 spring schedule lineup. 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.
For more information on either Varsity or Middle School baseball, please reach out to either Hunter Kennemer or Sherri Kunkel.
Please make sure your family is on the MANNA subscription list so that you get reminder notifications on all FEAST Baseball events. You may also follow us on Instagram at @feast_baseball or Twitter at @FeastBaseballSA.
SHOUT OUT TO OUR SENIORS!
For the past five years, Cason Grumbles has played with FEAST Baseball and served as Varsity Team Captain for two. His hard work and determination are evident to everyone around him, and he constantly strives to better himself as a player. Cason is a natural leader, and you can almost always hear him on the diamond encouraging his teammates or offering advice. His presence on the team will be missed in the seasons to come. Cason plans to study engineering while attending Texas State University.
Jackson Kennemer has been a part of Patriot Baseball for five years, serving as Varsity Team Captain for two. His love for the game and his teammates is apparent to anyone who knows him. Not only is he a skilled player, but his quiet leadership consistently provides an example of a hard work ethic and how to play The Game with integrity and class. We will miss Jackson but wish him success in this next season of life! Jackson will be attending Abilene Christian University on an academic scholarship, majoring in math and science.
Noah Gernenz blessed our FEAST baseball program with his presence for the past three years, serving as Varsity Team Captain for one. Noah is always edifying his teammates, both on and off the field; winning or losing, he finds a positive outlook. It has been a joy to watch him grow stronger as a player and see the friendships he’s developed with fellow players over the years. Noah will be participating in the Honors program studying math and history while attending Baylor University on an academic scholarship.
