Mission Statement

To promote self-awareness and lifelong learning for all ages through organized sports, resources, and educational programs; while preserving the legacies of Leon Day and the Negro League by giving recognition and exposure to a group of talented baseball players that were forgotten and never acknowledged.

Description

Our vision is to help revive baseball in the inner city; build bridges between the past, the present, and the future; to help promote self-esteem, ethics and morals, and self-discipline to the youth, through organized sports and with community outreach services; instilling the concepts that children are our future, and it takes a village to raise a child we help to lay the path. As a foundation we understand that our success will be the joint effort between us, the local government, and the community. Goals... Some our our immediate goals include the following: To raise funds to help establish and form additional programs for The Leon Day Living and Learning Center To implement the YES! Program (Youths Enriched through Sports), Family First Program, Herban Life Holistic Program (Healthy Living) To incorporate a division of Boys & Girls Club of America To improve and enhance the Leon Day Park and the existing organized sports programs
