Baseball - Boys Varsity
The baseball field is an extension of the classroom at Wyoming Seminary. Our program concentrates on teaching players the fundamentals, teamwork, discipline and passion for the game underlying any competitive squad. Several Blue Knights have gone on to play collegiate baseball in recent years.
The Blue Knights are a PIAA team competing in division AAA of the Wyoming Valley Conference. We play at Nesbitt Stadium, which was recently renovated and features one of the few turf baseball fields in northeastern Pennsylvania.
