"Serving Our Youth Since 1954"
The goal of Spring-Klein Baseball is to provide a healthy environment for the youth of our community to learn fundamental baseball skills while teaching values like honesty, integrity, and respect to help our players be good citizens. This is accomplished when our parents, coaches, and league officials work closely together to train our players on traditional baseball skills (hitting, fielding, and throwing) as well as by teaching them by example with good sportsmanship, by playing by the rules, and being respectful of an official's decision. All coaches, players, and parents have the ultimate responsibility of helping SKSA work towards achieving that goal.
In the summer of 1955, Cruze Reynolds and Elmer Lemm put together a baseball team from the Spring & Klein communities to play at the Cypress Fairbanks League. At the time, Spring and Klein were mostly made up of farmers and dairymen and the area was sparsely populated. It took boys from Spring and Klein to have enough to field a single team and thus, Spring-Klein Baseball was born.
Many of the names on our early teams are easily recognizable. They were: Vic Bailey, Jack Dean Bartels, Roy Benignus, Caleb Hassler, Glen Huffsfiedt, Charlie Langston, Mike Langston, Gary Lemm, Jack Reynolds, Buddy Ray Roth, Donald Schindewolf, and Perry Schindewolf.
The next year, four PeeWee league teams were formed with the players from various ages. These games were played behind the Doerre Brothers Store at the corner of Kuykendahl and Spring Cypress. As the league grew, it purchased land on Spring Cypress. They built one field the first year and then added three more fields shortly after. When the fields were completed the league deeded this land to Harris County , which is now Klein Park. Our league has played baseball under many league affiliations over the years from Texas Teenage Baseball to AABC, PONY, USSSA and most recently Nations Baseball.
By the late 1970’s, the fields at Klein Park were outgrown. Some Spring-Klein board members took a big personal risk and purchased land where our Rothwood facility is today so Spring-Klein Baseball could continue to grow. With the help of many volunteers, they built four fields with no grass and in the early years, Rothwood was known as “The Dust Bowl”. Thanks to these gentlemen and many who followed, Rothwood now has 13 fields and we are glad to say are all covered with grass.
Spring-Klein Baseball currently has a total of 21 fields (13 at Rothwood, 4 at Klein Park, and 4 at Collins). Over the last 52 years Spring-Klein Baseball registration has grown to well over 3000 players per year. There is an asphalt path making its way around the park to provide easy assess to any field. Our lighting project was completed during the spring of 2004. That plus our field maintenance program clearly makes our Rothwood complex one of the premier baseball parks in our area.
Over the years, Spring-Klein Baseball has become the home of many great World Series and championship teams. We are very proud of our league and all of our successes and we look forward to you and your player adding to those great memories as we continue to move our league forward.
