New Episode LIVE now! At The Yard Podcast 

The Road to the California State Games begins with the 2023 California high school baseball season. With the season just around the corner, our staff has begun putting out team previews from all around the state, getting you prepared for another year of exciting coverage.

Today we focus on the Palos Verdes Sea Kings who earned a Bay League championship in 2022 and had a run to the semifinals of the CIF SS DII playoffs. The Sea Kings bring back eight starters and are relying on that experience to clinch another league title and make another deep trip to the postseason.
