The 14U team will begin workouts in January at an indoor facility in Tacoma. Click on "Upcoming 14U Events" on the right side of the page for winter workout information. Outdoor workouts will take place in April at Curtis High School (University Place) and at the RS Field in Tacoma.
Approximately 10 "home and home" series games will begin in April and continue through July. Six (6) tournaments will be scheduled, four locally and two that require travel.
A service project will be scheduled in Pierce County during the season.
The theme for all Reality Sports baseball teams is "Competing Upside Down". Players explore what it means to train and compete with intensity and to bless/serve teammates, opponents, umpires, and the "forgotten" along the way.
$1,600 player fee includes uniform, field rentals, indoor training, umpires, baseballs, coaches fees, insurance, and association registrations.

COACH John Pagel
John played high school baseball, but didn't really catch the baseball "bug" until he started coaching his son Johnny at the age of 8. John coached a select team from 2004-2006, compiling a 101-57-6 record. His team, the Puyallup Panthers, made the Mickey Mantle state playoffs in 2005 and 2006, taking 3rd and 5th place, respectively. From 2007-2009 he assisted RS Director of Baseball, Tim Kuykendall, coaching 16-18 year olds. John's coaching philosophy is pretty simple. "When you get young people to believe, they can accomplish anything," Coach Pagel says. He believes this is true with the sport of baseball, but more importantly with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
John is currently a Detective Sergeant with the Kent Police Department but is returning to school this year to pursue a degree in Education. He hopes to teach middle school and continue coaching baseball.
COACH Johnny Pagel
Johnny played baseball at Curtis High School under Reality Sports co-founder Tim Kuykendall. As a senior in 2009, he was selected as a South Puget Sound League second team third baseman. Johnny played summer ball with Reality Sports clubs for four years and went on to play college baseball at Tacoma Community College. Career highlights include trips playing in Japan and the Dominican Republic.
Johnny assisted coaching the 18U Reality Sports in 2010 and has coached at a number of summer camps and clinics. He is currently a student at the University of Washington Tacoma with the goal of acquiring an Education degree.
