The Bullets Baseball program started in 1999 with a team called the “Olathe Bullets”. This team was made up of a talented group of 10 year old players from the Olathe, KS area. As the years went by the players began to come from the entire KC metro area. The team attracted quality players that had the ability to compete. Our goal was to play at the highest level possible. We played in events that attracted the best teams in the US; to include the following World Series: USSSA, Triple Crown, AAYBA, and Premier.
The “Olathe Bullets” successfully competed from 1999 through 2003. In 2004 and 2005 I affiliated the team with a local baseball academy. In 2006 I decided to become independent again, and the team returned to competitive play as the “KC Bullets.” The name was changed because the players no longer only represented the Olathe area. The majority of the original Bullet players remained on the team from the age of 10 through their high school graduation (age 18). Each of those players had the opportunity to play at the collegiate level.
Once the original Bullet players moved on to college fortunately there were many new players that showed an interest in the program. Over the past decade (2006-2015), the Bullets program has been a reputable and highly recognized college prep team with well over 100 former players having been given the opportunity to play at either the collegiate or professional level.
The Bullets program has now attracted players from the KC metro area, cities of Springfield, Kirksville, Columbia, St. Joseph, Savannah, Topeka, and Manhattan, as well as Texas, Nevada, and Canada.
