In the Spring of 2015, PCA suited up for the first time on the baseball diamond. With the Coquille Recreation Complex serving as the “home field” the Paladins compete against schools throughout the Northshore, even venturing into Mississippi in order to have a truly competitive and meaningful schedule.
In the Spring of 2016, the Paladins came within 1 victory of winning the Northshore Independent Athletic League’s 7th and 8th grade baseball championship. The runner-up finish is something the team hopes to build on, as 2017 will bring back 6 of 9 starters.
The Paladins roster consists of players with a variety of baseball experiences and backgrounds. Several of the boys participate in travel ball teams, with a near equal number playing on all-star teams within their rec programs.
One of the great aspects of being affiliated with the Paladins baseball program is the manner in which the program has been able to garner the attention of 4 year colleges and universities. Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia, along with William Carey College and the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, have all expressed interest in what is happening with PCA baseball. As the program continues to grow, the entire PCA family looks forward to seeing its student athletes grow and develop, both on the field, and off.
