The World Series is a Family Feud for Two KU Baseball Alums
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Very few are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to make the dream of playing in the World Series a reality, even at the elite level.
A Major League career can span 15 years of successful baseball and end without the chance of being a World Champion.

No one knows that better than former Kansas baseball players Brett Bochy (2008-10) and Kevin Kuntz (2010-13). For them, baseball has always been more than just a game; it’s a way of life, a family affair.
