As one of the SWBL League founders on that fateful 2003 day, Kevin is more widely known for his contributions to the league rather than his merits on the field.  Kevin is inducted to the SWBL Hall of Fame as one of the longest tenured players currently playing.  While his playing time is limited in his career, he turns his attention to captain the SWBL Expos, amassing one of the greatest stories in league history, leading a team who had never made the playoffs to a Championship in 2020.  The barefoot lefty in the 100 pants has campaigned to enshrine himself in the league he helped begin as one of it's original captains.
