It is that time of year again when L.E.A.D. gets the opportunity to partner with 60 new families during our fall Legacy League program. The Legacy League is America's first fall instructional league that focuses on the professional baseball development of inner city middle and high school baseball talent for the sole purpose of receiving college baseball scholarships.
Why are we considered professionals? We are professionals because we instruct from a proven curriculum, patented process and comprehensive methodology developed by our founder C.J. Stewart, owner of Diamond Directors.
Since 2007, 100% of our L.E.A.D. Ambassadors have graduated from high school and enrolled in college while 89% of them have enrolled in college with a baseball scholarship. Now that is Impact with a capital I!
We are very intentional when it comes down to making a difference in the lives of our young men. Impact is more than a trending buzz word to us. We measure our impact. We want to be held accountable. My coaches and I enjoy being mentors and the families that we serve are counting on us to help make attending college a reality. If a young man goes to college, L.E.A.D. gets an A, if he doesn't we get an F. Period.
Baseball is a fun and challenging sport that can teach so many life lessons. I am a firm believer that baseball doesn't build character, it exposes it. On Saturday, August 27th, I will look in the curious eyes of young men from Booker T. Washington High School. I will shake the firm hands of young men from Joseph Emerson Brown Middle School. I will stand proud before several families within the Atlanta Public School System assuring them that they are in the right place at the right time.
We are committed to continuing to Launch, Expose, Advise and Direct. Atlanta is counting on us!
