This expansion builds on our rich 15-year history of developing top-tier talent, including three Major Leaguers, two Olympians, and over 50 players who have signed MLB contracts. The new Menlo Park Legends will join our existing team, the Menlo Park Legacy, which will continue its competition in the Bay Area Collegiate League.
