Listed in Sports Illustrated; September 6, 1999 as #8 on the all-time list of teams American's enjoyed watching they have amazed fans with the trademark blindfolded pitching performances on “The Steve Allen Show”, “The Tonight Show”, “The Jerry Lewis Telethon”, and “CBS Sunday Sports Spectacular” to name a few.

Still dressed in the trademark red, white and blue uniforms and taking the field as a 4-man team; pitcher, catcher, first baseman and shortstop, the King & His Court will travel the back roads and busy streets of cities and communities one last time bringing a message of Hope, Awareness and of Choice. Encouraging fans and spectators to follow their hearts and commit to their dreams.
