Organization Name: Legends Baseball

How many current teams and what levels (15u, 16u, etc): We have 15 teams from ages 9-17
Influential coaches past and present:
We’ve been lucky to have some great coaches come through the program, some who are still with us. Some that come to mind are the Costantino brothers, Mike, Dave and Eric.

Other great coaches that come to mind are Bryan Lafata, Tom Fresoni, Thomas “Powder” Cadmus, current Legends Owner Rusty Tucker, General Manager Eli Munkholm, and Travel Program Director Alex Smith.

Our goals/philosophy are to develop baseball players at all ages in all aspects of the game.  We’ve prided ourselves on making sure we train our players to be very knowledgeable, hard working, tenacious and respectful when on the field. The amount of success we’ve had in the past can be attributed to the passion and dedication that all of our players have had when competing in some of the most intense and talented baseball environments. These attributes are a big reason why we’ve become a nationally ranked program. 

How has the program grown? 

We started out in 2007 with two teams and renting out two tunnels at a local indoor facility to seeing our program grow to over 15 teams and having our own 10,000-sq foot facility.

Key accomplishments

Some of the key accomplishments that stand out are the successful runs we’ve had on the national level that’s allowed us to be ranked with the other top programs along the country.  We’ve had a handful of top finishes in major Perfect Game events, the best being a runner up finish in the 2018 14U BCS National Championships in Fort Myers, Fla. Another great experience for some of our players came at last year's PBR event at Lakepoint, Ga. where we had a few of our top prospects get great exposure. The likes of Thomas White, Brandyn Durand, Matt Sapienza and Jack Penney really shined.

How has PBR been helpful?

PBR has been great by allowing our players to take part in events and showcases that allow our players to compete against the best of their age level and to be seen by many of the top schools across the country. It’s always great for our players to get tested to see where they need to improve. 

Plans ahead 

We’ll be playing another top-notched schedule competing in the Elite Baseball League along with many great national tournament events hosted by PBR, Baseball Heaven, Diamond Nation, Ripken Experience and Perfect Game.
