Leonard is a solid hitter with consistently high batting averages and on-base percentages.  He is a solid defender at first base and the outfield, with additional experience at second base and third base.  He has above-average speed with a good throwing arm (mid- to high 80s mph).  His speed is an asset on the base paths, as well.

He brings energy to a team, both on and off the field.  He is competitive, but is a very supportive teammate always looking to do what’s best for the club.  He continues to work out, train and play in competitive men’s leagues to keep his skills at high levels.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Lenny, and came to know him as a truly good person and hard worker when he was at St. Cloud State University. His knowledge of the game and ability to play at the highest level every day was a joy to witness. Along with his undeniable talent on the field, he was a great teammate and team player.

Coach Pruett

Saint Cloud State University, Assistant Coach

Leonard is a great clubhouse guy. Always positive. Good baseball IQ and finds a way to help the team perform any way he can. Good glove and accurate arm. At the plate he is going to find a way on base. Whether it’s hitting it in a gap, flicking an 0-2 pitch into the outfield, or being patient at the plate.
