played baseball before but not a lot. Am I good enough to be
considered for L.E.A.D.?
A: That’s the
beauty of L.E.A.D. We’re not here to pick the best players; we’re
here to develop players into being their best. So if you’ve played
baseball before or not, as long as you have an interest and will be

Q: I play
baseball at my high school. Will I still be able to do that if I’m
selected for L.E.A.D.?

Department so we can make baseball matter again in APS. If you’re
selected to be a member of L.E.A.D.’s High School Ambassador
Program, you will still be able to play with your high school team.
In fact, L.E.A.D. coaches will come out from time to time to
support you to make sure that you are being an Ambassador on your
school squad as well.
