PHILIPSBURG—Two of the King brothers have left St. Maarten in search of baseball careers. Julius King is in Puerto Rico and Julian the youngest of the three at age 16 is in the Dominican Republic training and participating in Major League Baseball try outs. Julius, age 20, is playing in the Puerto Rico Independent Baseball League.

“I was invited to a collegiate league, where I will be playing over 20 games.” said Julius. I will be able to display my talent in front of college scouts and hopefully MLB scouts. In hopes of receiving a scholarship to play for a college baseball program. Julius graduated from Milton Peters College in 2019. “I want to study Finance.” There are four teams, in the league. Julius plays for the Conquistadores. Julian is in Dominican Republic at a professional baseball training facility. He receives top level training and doing try outs for various MLB Clubs. Julian participated in his first try out at age 15. But now at 16 he is old enough to sign with a club.

“Julian will be guided by my older brother Junior,” said Julius. Junior paved the way for both of us, through his experience in the Dominican Republic. Junior now almost 30 played professional ball.
