Trappers 2019 - Highlights, so far..
The Township Blue Sox (North Langley and Aldergrove Baseball Associations) are very pleased and honoured to announce that Kevin Nicholson will be joining our Township Blue Sox - College Prep coaching staff for the 2020 season.
Over the years, Kevin has led both the North Langley Peewee AAA and the Township Blue Sox Bantam AAA – programs to provincial births. In his first season Kevin’s efforts were recognized by BC Minor Baseball who named him the Coach of the Year for the 13U division. Kevin has the ability to make players better, both mentally and physically.
Kevin's baseball background is extensive to say the least. He was drafted by the California Angels in 1994, but rather than sign he chose to attend Stetson University, where he played college baseball. Kevin’s college accomplishments include being named Conference Player of the Year in 1997. He reentered the draft in 1997 where he was selected in the first round, 27th overall, by the San Diego Padres.
Kevin spent three seasons in the minors, before making it to the majors where he played 37 games for the Padres in 2000. He later spent time in the Colorado Rockies, St. Louis Cardinals, and Pittsburgh Pirates organizations.
He was also a member of the Canadian National Baseball Team for several years. In 2001, he was part of their Baseball World Cup team, and was part of Team Canada's fourth place team in the 2004 Summer Olympics. In addition he played for Canada at the inaugural World Baseball Classic in 2006.
We look forward to big things with our College Prep program here in the near future.

Thank you Kel!
Tragically, with great sorrow, we at North Langley Baseball need to inform you that coach/manager Mike Whitmey, a long-time advocate to kids’ baseball in Langley, died in a car accident on Monday March 18.
One of Mike’s passions in life was the game of baseball. Mike gave so much time to the kids …. “He was a players coach”. The players loved playing for him. He would always be the first one to applaud them or praise them. He always remained calm, cool and collected, he was someone you could count on and one who would walk a thousand miles out of his way for his players.
From a baseball movie in the 90’s, “Angels in the Outfield,” the baseball community will be able to feel the presence of a friend, mentor, and coach and companion looking over them. From family man to baseball coach, Mike Whitmey was a man who always brought a smile to his family, friends and players he coached on any ball field.
Although we lost a good coach, great father and unbelievable human being, the baseball community gained an angel in our outfields. From North Langley Baseball, the Langley Township Community and all of Langley City, we thank you Coach Mikefor all of the lives you have impacted within these associationsand in this community.
Mikey, “I hope you have the best seats in town my friend”, to watch all these kids play a game you brought so much love and passion too. We hope you rest in peace because you will be missed by many.
With sincere sympathy
