A Little About Myself
Welcome to the blog of Leonardo Ware (L.V. Ware). I am a native of Atlanta, Georgia and a minor league baseball player for the Atlanta Braves. I am proud to say that I am a part of the most amazing organization of all of baseball. The Atlanta Braves organization shows class, respect, dedication, loyalty and the drive to be the best ever. As a child growing up in the inner city of Atlanta it was always a dream to one day be a Brave. Watching the Braves in the 90’s was probably one of most memorable moments I’ll have to remember as a young man growing up. My dream became a reality when I was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 43rd round after the 2006 season & after of my refusal to sign with the Chicago Cubs to play another year of college baseball. After being selected by the Braves I was further notified that this was going to be the last year of draft and follow, so i had to perform at my best in the spring of 2007 if i wanted to seal a deal with the Braves. I cant say I had a stellar year during the spring, but it was a year that made a dream a reality! I signed with the Braves April 28, 2007 and was it relief of my shoulders. Signing with the University of South Carolina was blessing itself during the fall semester, but inking the deal with the Braves was something that just couldnt be replaced. After signing my contract I recieved a few phone calls, first from Kurt Kemp (Director of Player Development) then from Mr. Johnathan Schuerholz (President of the Atlanta Braves) both congratulating me on signing with the Atlanta Braves & being the first player to sign in 2007. Didnt play in 2007 due to rotator cuff surgery, but its the only reason why i have a career now. Played 2008 in Danville, VA (Danville Braves) 2009 in Rome, GA (Rome Braves) & Danville, VA (Danville Braves 2009 Appy League Champs) 2010 in Rome, GA (Rome Braves) / Myrtle Beach, SC (Myrtle Beach Pelicans) / Jackson, MIssissippi (Mississippi Braves). This is just a little for you all to get to know me, but look for great photos, videos, interviews, pictures & comedy on my blog. Thanks for stopping by to read my thoughts. Have a great day!!
