Welcome to the Maryland Legends Baseball and Softball Organization!
We are excited to offer a fantastic program and opportunity to the community. The
Maryland Legends Baseball and Softball Organization is based on a very simple principle...

Arrive to the organization with dedication and the will to work hard.
Goal: To obtain a college baseball or softball scholarship.

It is that simple, work hard, stay the course and get a scholarship. The purpose of this organization is not to win trophies (we will win our share), the purpose is to develop players. This is a scholarship team, a scholarship program. Ed Lynch has coached baseball and softball for many years. His pedigree is unmatched and will elevate the program and its players to their goals, college play with baseball and softball.

A Message From Ed Lynch

I am requesting that all parents of Maryland Legend Players take some time and read “THE MATHENY MANIFESTO”.  The Manifesto was originally written in 2009 and I wish I had written it.  The majority of the points made in this article are systems and mythologies that have guided our program for years.  Sometimes it is very difficult to hear your son or daughter’s name as I am bellowing comments to them. Understand that this program has a thirty year track record of success.

Read the entire Manifesto to maximize your experience with the Maryland Legends.  As a family,  you will spend many hours with your child going to practice, games and the many different events that surround baseball/softball.    Please read the entire message and take some time to reflect upon the many powerful statements that are within. Understand that the program is geared for your son or daughter and not you (the parent).

I am very blessed to have players that are the second generation with me.  I am very blessed to have many families with multiple children on our teams, even some with 4 children.  We are confident about our mythology and systems that guide us with the Maryland Legends and feel that the Matheny Manifesto explains many of them.

Thank you and please take the time and really reflect on the message

Your Child’s Coach,

Ed Lynch
