As a former major league scout and college baseball coach, I am looking for baseball players that have baseball talent 
and ability that would be appealing to college coaches and major league scouts. Over the past thirty plus years I have 
crossed paths with countless high school and youth baseball players with the Dream of Playing College/Professional 
Baseball. While many of those young men no doubt, had the talent and ability to continue playing past the high school 
level, unfortunately their dreams of playing college/pro baseball ended with their last high school game due to their 
lack of exposure to college coaches and/or pro scouts.” 

We are looking for the best of the best
We are looking sincere and committed baseball players
We are looking players inspiring to play college or pro baseball
Since 1984 over 300 baseball players from our program have went on to play college and/or pro baseball

Message: I was the head baseball coach at Kishwaukee Community College in Malta, IL 1992-95. During that period many of my best players came from Coach Mike Mayden and his South Shore Legion team. Every single one of these individuals were not only excellent baseball players but outstanding people. I owe the success I had at KCC to Mike Mayden as I am sure many other colleges do too. One of my biggest honors in baseball was speaking at the South Shore Christmas Year End Banquet in 1995. Thanks Mike for all you do for baseball Currently I own my own baseball training business and am a coach and evaluator for USA Baseball.
