Serra Little League News
Serra Alumni Series: Casey Douglas

Serra Little League has represented Sunnyvale for more than 50 years, so it's natural that the league played host to thousands of young baseball players over the years. As part of the Serra Alumni Series, we'll showcase some of the players who have gone on to player higher level baseball.

We are proud of our our baseball heritage, but even prouder of the kids that made their start in organized baseball on Serra fields.

This round of the Alumni Series features Casey Douglas, who played for Serra in early 2000 as a T-Ball player, then returned from 2004 through 2007 to round out his Little League career in Majors. Casey was part of the Majors A's team that won Serra's league championship and represented Serra as an All Star.

Casey played a variety of positions, including First base, third base and the outfield. Like many other youth athletes, he played multiple sports, including 8 years of soccer.

After Serra, Casey attended St Francis High School, where he lettered in baseball his Junior and Senior year. In 2014 Casey won of 5 of his 6 starts, with a 0.46 ERA. He pitched a no-hitter against Yuba City High School in the Scott Boros Tournament his Senior Year.

He also pitched a 3-hit shutout against Clayton Valley High School in the Elite-8 Tournament. The pitcher allowed just 10 hits all season, while racking up 32 strike outs. Douglas also represented the Lancers on the football field, where he played quarterback for the JV team and on the court where he was a two-year starter on the St Francis varsity basketball team.

Douglas signed with the Kansas Jayhawks, and attends the university on a baseball scholarship. He joins a Jayhawks team that was ranked as high as 22nd in the nation last season and qualified for the NCAA College World Series regionals.

Casey will make his NCAA debut this weekend as the Jayhawks faceoff against the LSU Tigers in a game that will be televised on ESPN3. He is tentatively scheduled to start for the Jayhawks next week as the team travels to Arizona for the Big12/Pac 12 Challenge tournament which will include games against the University of Washington, Utah, Washington State, and Oregon State.

For all his accomplishments on the diamond, Casey hasn't forgotten his roots.

"Serra little league was a fantastic experience," Douglas said as he prepared for the 2015 NCAA season to begin. "I woke up with so much excitement just to get to the field and play every weekend. Serra is a fantastic league for kids who were trying to improve, make it to the next level or just play for the love of the game. I truly enjoyed and am thankful to get the real Little League experience".

The Serra community is proud to call Casey one of its own and we wish him a great 2015 campaign. We'll be chearing him and the rest of the Jayhawks on from his home in California.

Follow Casey this season via the KU Baseball website.
