Dear Baseball Fans from Coach Niles

Dear Baseball Fans,

I’m truly honored and excited to be selected as the Head Coach of the Eugene Challengers. The Challengers organization has been a first-class operation for several decades. With baseball opportunities for young athletes diminishing on a regular basis, the Challengers have not only survived but prospered over time. This accomplishment has only been possible because of the thousands of hours given by the Challengers board of directors and volunteers that have kept the vision alive. My job is to help continue the tradition. I’m excited to create a dynamic coaching staff that will work in collaboration with the high school programs that feed us and the board to cohesively form the best product on and off the field as possible. We plan on bringing you an exciting brand of baseball that our community can be proud to stand behind. I would like to thank Mr. Hartley, Mr. Duman and the Challengers board of directors for allowing me to call Swede Johnson Stadium home.

Yours in baseball – Kenny Niles
