Wesleyan Baseball Leadership Series

The Wesleyan Baseball Leadership Series consists of speakers coming to talk to the Wesleyan baseball team. The program is designed to make a connection between the current players and working professionals, both alums and friends of the program.

The speakers have talked about everything from what they do in their jobs, their post-college paths, leadership, motivation, baseball, and Wesleyan tradition and history. The program has been an outstanding success and forged introductions and inspiration to the Wesleyan baseball players.
