The rubber-walloping weekend warriors of Kaw Valley Kickball League are back. While the kingly pursuit of kickball has sprouted leagues across the nation, KVKL has developed a distinctly Lawrencian character all its own. This rich pageantry of townies, pre-pubescent sport, and beer has become a summertime staple. Thirty teams representing many Lawrence businesses and other groups take to the diamond every Sunday starting this week, often with costumes and mascots, for the silliest spectacle in short-shorts you'll see around here. Ballers Mike Tiffany, Adina Scanland, Andrea Vieux, Geoff Wright, and Adrian Proctor joined us to preview the new season of Kaw Valley Kickball.
