Bronco Baseball Broadcast Schedule

Bronco Baseball Broadcast Schedule

KBOV  will broadcast live Bishop Union High School baseball this spring.  This will be the 13th consecutive season for live Bronco Baseball on 1230 AM.  The games will also be streamed live here at  Fans can click on the listen live link on the home page.  Veteran Broadcaster Arnie Palu will have the play by play.

The 2015 Broncos are under the direction of new manager Chris Walston.  The long time assistant coach will get his first chance to manage the varsity broncos.  During his time on the BUHS staff the graduate of Lakeside El Capitan High School has worked with both the Bronco JV and varsity teams.

The 2015 Broncos will feature just 4 returning starters.  Catcher Colten Riesen, pitcher Justin Hollowell, along with infielders Jeremy Fie and  Jake Trainor all made starts last season.  Riesen led the 2014 broncos in almost every offensive category and will be a High Desert League MVP candidate.  Riesen and fellow senior Justin Hollowell are both entering their third varsity season.  The Bronco pitching staff will get a boost from the return of senior Alex Sipes.  Sipes started 2014 very strong, but due to academic challenges missed the second half of the season.

Bishop finished as runners up in the High Desert League in 2014.  Rival Kern Valley won the title.
