Joe Crisp and Justin Stinson, two mainstays from the winningest Kentucky State University baseball team in the last 29 years, played for the Champion City Kings in the Prospect League, a summer wooden bat league for college baseball players.

Crisp, a junior from Shelbyville, Kentucky and was in the Thorobreds’ starting rotation throughout the 2017 season, appeared in 7 games for the Kings, earning a win against the Butler Blue Sox on July 15th.

Stinson, a senior from Shepherdsville, Kentucky, started 49 games for KSU in 2017, and earned second team All-SIAC honors at the position, appeared in 25 games for the Kings. Stinson primarily played shortstop, but also saw time at second base and third base.

“I’m excited for Joe and Justin to have played in this league against so many Division I players, and to have experienced that level of success,” said head coach Rob Henry. “In turn, they will bring back their experience from this summer and help make their teammates and the ball club better this upcoming year.
