Middle School Red Baseball

Tampa Prep Middle School Baseball team

Team Overview

The MS Boys Baseball program at Tampa Prep is designed to challenge each athlete to develop skills that will help them progress to the next level while fostering an appreciation and a love for the game of baseball. For the beginning player, our Gold team introduces them to the basic skills and understanding of the rules and strategy of the game. More advanced players who play on the Red team build on those basic skills and team strategies and are challenged to compete at a higher level in the Florida West Coast League and participate in the end of season League Championship Tournament. The MS Baseball program is the time for young athletes to develop their skills and understanding of the game, as they work toward playing on the varsity ball team.

Coach

Ari Kira

Coach Kira grew up in Bellevue, WA, where, in 2011, he helped take the varsity program to its first state playoff tournament and led the 3A King County division in saves. He also pitched in the 3A vs. 4A senior all-star game of 2011. He went on to play at Yakima Valley Community College and San Diego Mesa College, and finished his last two years of collegiate baseball (2015-2017) at Indiana Wesleyan University as a two-way pitcher/fielder. Coach Kira has a bachelor’s degree in Sport Management from the University of Tampa. With 16 years of playing experience, he is honored to be in his second year of coaching for the Tampa Prep Middle School Baseball team. “I have always wanted to give back to the game as a coach, so I could teach the lessons the game taught me to the upcoming youth,” he says.
