This fall/winter in San Antonio, the Texas Adaptive Play Initiative (TAPI), in partnership with MindsEye and BeepBall Nation, is hosting the first ever All-Star game from the Top 20 Beep Baseball players in the nation as well as 5 alternates, 3 female players, and 2 rookies.

Through a diverse selection panel made up of individuals who have played or studied the game extensively, the top players were selected. The Gateway Archers had 3 players chosen as part of this group: Kyle Borah, Ethan Johnston, and Rich Krussel. Since the end of the 2022 World Series, the Archers have also signed selected All-Star Marc Morris, from this year’s World Champion team, Indy Edge.

Kyle Borah

Kyle had quite an impressive showing at this year’s World Series. He had a scoring average of .714 which ranked 8th among all players and had a put-out average of 3.143 per game ranking him 10th in that category. He is one of only two players to be ranked in the top 10 in both categories, the other is perennial MVP Erik Rodriguez.

Ethan Johnston

It was Ethan’s first year with the Archers, and his talent and skills did not disappoint. He had a scoring average of .647 ranking him 10th overall and had a put-out average of 2.571 per game ranking him 18th this year at this year’s World Series.

Rich Krussel
