Last year was Gabe Uebel’s first as the middle school baseball coach at the Frankfort Christian Academy.

This year Uebel will lead a TFCA varsity team that will be competing against KHSAA opponents.

The Royals play their season opener Monday against Frankfort at Charlie Figg Field in Capitol View Park.

“Last year we finished the middle school season with 11 players,” Uebel said. “This year we’re returning eight of those 11 and we have a total of 20 players out.

“The quality of play has gotten better, and they’ve dramatically improved their will to win.”

TFCA will field a young team with no seniors and just one junior. The 20 players out for this year’s team include high school and middle school players, and all but the team’s sixth-graders will dress for varsity games.

“Last year in the inaugural middle school season we played Second Street, Bondurant, Elkhorn, Anderson County,” Uebel said. “We went right at them, and we beat most of them last year.”

Uebel’s assistant coaches this year are Troy Robinson and Charlie Foster.

The Royals’ home games will be at Capitol View Park.

The Frankfort Christian Academy is in the second year of its probation period with the KHSAA and won’t be eligible for postseason play until next season.
