Today, L.E.A.D. crowned Jean Childs Young Middle School as the 2011 L.E.A.D. Middle School Baseball Development League Champion. Young posted an undefeated season and played with energy and intensity every game. Congratulations to the entire Young Middle School!
The reality is that the city of Atlanta won today. There was a high level of excitement at Perkerson Park today. The stands were packed with family and friends. Everybody was asking “What’s next!?” Our next event is the All-Star game which will feature 30 Leaders representing B.E.S.T. Academy, Sylvan Hills, Young, King, Kennedy and Parks Middle School. The game will be played at Perkerson Park on Saturday, May 14th at 10:00AM.
After the All-Star game, Coach Kerwin Giles will select 15 Leaders to represent L.E.A.D. as the Jr. Ambassadors for a competitive summer of baseball. The process to select these young men has been tough and I look forward to establishing relationships with some of Atlanta’s best assets.
If we are right about this, baseball in the inner city will be changed for the good for decades. Student-athletes from APS will flood college campuses across America receiving college degrees and setting records on the baseball field. Come be a part of the L.E.A.D. team by cheering in the stands at our next L.E.A.D. baseball game or getting dirty with us during our next service project.
