Legends On Deck

Thank You Legends On Deck from Baseball Bahamas

At the end of another minor league baseball season, I would like to take this time to say Thank you Legends on Deck from Baseball Bahamas for a platform to write on our growing ballplayers from the Islands of the Bahamas.

Thank you to Legends on Deck founder David Conde, who invited me with open arms to write on this blog. Official Photographer Mathew Carper whom I met personally at the Home Run Derby in Paradise, Nassau Bahamas.

An awesome platform for me to highlight young men I saw growing as kids playing the game they love. A game that gave them dreams of one day playing in the Major Leagues of Baseball from the Islands of the Bahamas.

2019 Season:
Home Run Derby in Paradise

Bo Bichette – Toronto BlueJays 2019 Don’t Blink Home Run Derby in Paradise.

Thank you Legends on Deck from Baseball Bahamas for highlighting the 2nd annual Don’t Blink Home Run Derby in Paradise hosted by Todd Isaacs Jr. & Lucius Fox Jr. Bo Bichett emerged as the home run king for the second time on the beach in Nassau, Bahamas.

Top 30 Prospects:

We highlighted the six MLB Pipeline top 30 prospects from the Islands

Thank you Legends on Deck

Kristian Robinson, Jazz Chisholm, D’Shawn Knowles, Trent Deveaux, Tahnaj Thomas, Lucius Fox, and Chavez Young.

Furthermore, there was lots of movement for our top 30 prospects, with two players moving into the top 100 top prospects list.

Another big highlight was the trade of Arizona DBack #1 prospect Jasrado Chisholm to the Miami Marlins.

Also lots of players movements, some good moments and some not so good too.

2019 Highlights:

Two players won a championship with the AZL Rangers, Lucius Fox Jr, Todd Isaacs Jr, Kristian Robinson, Chavez Young, and Tahnaj Thomas their teams making it to the playoffs.

Antoan Richardson Coaching in his first MLB game at first base for the San Francisco Giants.

Three minor league teams had two players from the Island on their rosters.

I end this thank you with our players and their ability to bring awareness about the category five hurricane Dorian that did heavy damage to the northern Bahamas. And the recovery effort for our beloved country.

“Good Bless”
