Coach Eilmes Bio
From 2000-2012, Kenny was a high school baseball coach. He coached varsity, JV, freshman, A, AA, and AAA Legion. He had stints coaching at Central Valley, Rogers, Ferris and East Valley. He also was a teacher at Rogers and Ferris. Kenny's goal was to become the 1st ever second generation head baseball coach in the Greater Spokane League. When it was evident he wasn't cut out for coaching in the public sector, he created his private business in 2008. Kenny's father is in the GSL Coaches Hall-of-Fame and coached MLB HOF'er Ryne Sandberg for the Indians of North Central HS.
Coach Eilmes was a 3 time ALL-GSL infielder at Central Valley HS. In 1992 he played shortstop at Edmonds CC where he earned All Northern Division NWAC. That same year he was also named to the All-State NWAC Tournament Team for the Tritons. He transferred to NAIA Powerhouse Oklahoma City University for his sophomore and junior years. During that time he was a 2 time All-District 9 infielder. For his senior season, Kenny came back to the Northwest and played for Eastern Oregon State College in which he was named All-Cascade Collegiate Conference as well as All-Region. There, he was the team’s Gold Glove winner as well as the leading hitter with a .401 batting average.
For over the past 22 years, Coach Eilmes has been an infield consultant for various high school varsity and legion programs as well as some local youth and select programs. Kenny stopped coaching high school baseball and created his business in 2008.
Kenny has a passion for infield play. When he was a player, there was no such thing as infield camps. So he is very happy to be working with, and developing, players that are hungry to be the best players on the field. Pictured is Kenny in 2023 with Kodie Kolden. Kod trained with Kenny over a decade and starred at WSU and Dallas Baptist University.
