The Knights run the table in their inaugural semi-pro season. Even versus questionable competition a 25-0 season is remarkable. The team is made up primarily of ex-Aloha High School players hungry for a baseball fix. The team practically begs for acceptance into the Beaverton Adult Baseball League run by Gene Kellert. The infamous Mr. Kellert makes it clear that this “isn’t softball guys, you sure about this?”. The Knights take his words to heart and blast through the BABL and beat a BABL All-Star team at the conclusion of the season.


Knights score 27 runs in a game (Knights 27, Hillsboro 4). Rich Sermone hits two grand slam homers and drives in 10.

Rod Scheckla wins all 11 of his starts.

Knights win the Wildcats Invitational. Sermone named MVP and Rod Scheckla Most Valuable Pitcher.
