The L.E.A.D. Ambassadors played its inaugural season the summer of 2008. As a high school senior, L.E.A.D. Ambassador Joseph McCrary was one of the team captains. In my opinion, he could have played at most Division I schools but of course I'm biased.
I made a lot of calls on his behalf to college baseball coaches and heard no each time. Coach Carlton Hardy at Savannah State University (SSU) hosted a workout that Joseph attended and it was a done deal.
In the fall of 2009, Joseph enrolled at Savannah State University as a student-athlete. He graduated in May 2013 Magna Cum Laude from Savannah State and has been the catalyst for the program for all four years. In his senior year, the Tigers won the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC). This is only the second year that Savannah State has been in the conference.
The Savannah State Tigers has earned a bid to play in the Tallahassee Regional with Florida State University, University of Alabama and Troy University. Game action begins on Friday, May 31st at 5:00PM in Tallahassee and will be televised on ESPNU.
L.E.A.D. Ambassador alums Jason Wynn (Senior, RHP) and Mendez Elder (Freshman, OF) are also integral parts of the Savannah State MEAC Championship team.
L.E.A.D. is only a vision without our Ambassadors.
