The Coastal Kingfish are a team in the Pecos Spring League. The manager is Casey Dill. The bench coach is Justin Lowery. The pitching coach is Chris Paterson. The Coastal Kingfish are the first ever team to enter the Pecos Spring League.
This season the Pecos Spring League will open its doors to all Independent Leagues and affliated teams who might be searching for players to finalize their roster. The location of the Pecos Spring League is much different than other leagues. It will be located in Houston, Texas. Texas has never had such a developmental league. There are other such leagues that have existed in Arizona and California but this will be a first for the Lone Star State. The Full Season Pecos League will be offering around 30 Spring Training Invites and this gives local Texas Players a huge chance to test the waters for a month with actual Pecos League Coaches. This is an instructional business and is a real opportunity for those players who literally slipped through the cracks and need the chance to play.
