From Berlin Little League to Major League: Max Kepler

October 4th, 2015

"What an incredible, chest-thumpin' thrill to see former player Max Kepler from our Berlin Little League days step into the batter's box as a Minnesota Twin. (Max was also this year's Southern League MVP for his champion Chattanooga Lookouts.) Welcome to the SHOW, Max - you belong up there!"


This is what Mr. Chad Felt, Max's former LL coach and JFKS teacher, wrote as he watched the game on October 1st in Cleveland, Ohio. Mr. Felt kindly shared with us not only this photo, but also team photos from over fifteen years ago, showing Max Kepler's baseball beginnings in Berlin: Mr. Felt coached him with Dave Chilton (Cubs), Karen Wingo, a JFKS elementary teacher (Devil Rays), and again with Karen and David Rosenfeld for the Marlins. Incidentally, three others on that Marlins team went on to play college ball: Zach and Nate Ferster (Baldwin Wallace College) and Momo Felt who pitches at Dickinson College.


Max Kepler first attended John-F.-Kennedy-School in Berlin, and from 2008 lived in Regensburg, where he played for the Buchbinder Legionäre. He signed with the Twins in 2009, and after six years in Minor League was called up to the Major League in September 2015. 


Congratulations from all of us at SC JFKS Berlin to Max Kepler!

Rams Baseball Team Played in German Baseball Youth Championships in Paderborn

September 23, 2013

For the first time in history of our baseball program, the SC JFKS baseball team Rams participated in German Baseball Youth Championships 2013 (Deutsche Meisterschaft Jugend) in Paderborn. The boys and coaches travelled to the tournament hosted by Paderborn Untouchables on September 21-22, 2013. The best eight teams in German youth baseball competed. The Rams played against the Sollingen Alligators, the Buchbinder Legionäre, and the Stuttgart Reds. They seemed to be evenly matched in each game but had some bad luck so this year it was last place in the tournament. But, needless to say, we are proud of what the Rams achieved this year. Great job, and keep it up!
