MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - LEEP Legends will once again take the diamond this summer. Thursday night players found out which team they’d be playing for.
The two LEEP Legends teams that will be competing in the 5th annual LEEP Legends event are Weelborg Chevrolet and CCF Bank. Players for both teams were announced in a draft format, complete with commentary, pictures and their jersey. The draft was a fun kick off for an event that provides for many.
“It helps us support our operations and it helps us keep the cost low for our participants, all of which have intellectual and developmental disabilities so we want to be able to provide them all the social, recreational and sporting opportunities but make it affordable too, so this helps us be able to do that,” LEEP Executive Director Lisa Hoffman Wojcik said.
The LEEP Legends softball game will take place on Wednesday, July 17.
