To say that African-Americans don’t want to play baseball is blasphemy

“To understand the road ahead, ask those coming back. Success leaves clues.” This is my favorite Chinese Proverb.

I had an amazing conversation this morning with Mr. Lyndon A. Wade who is a graduate of Booker T. Washington and Morehouse College.  He said that “today’s youth in Atlanta will never know what they need to become until they know where they have come from.” Mr. Lyndon Wade was a standout student and athlete representing the Atlanta Public School System.  He played during a time when it was said that “you weren’t a man if you didn’t play baseball.” Charles Easley Sr.

L.E.A.D. is an acronym that stands for Launch, Expose, Advise and Direct. L.E.A.D. directs young men towards their promise by using the historical journey of past legends in baseball and the community as the road map.

L.E.A.D. can’t go wrong following the legacy of Mr. Lyndon Wade.  Click here to learn more about this living legend who I consider to be a heartbeat of Atlanta.
Baseball has been a strong part of the African-American culture since the beginning of time just as our belief in Jesus Christ.  To say that African-Americans don’t want to play baseball is blasphemy. Even during the days of slavery, African-Americans played baseball.

On my watch, baseball will return strong in the inner city of Atlanta with your support.  Come out and experience L.E.A.D.
