Doyle Beard Memorial Fund
This Memorial Fund was created in honor of Doyle Beard who was involved in youth baseball for over 50 years. “Coach,” as he was fondly known by most, was the founder of Hardball Academy. He wanted every kid that desired the opportunity to play baseball to be able to participate. This scholarship and assistance fund will directly be used to help deserving young players that cannot afford to play, assist local area baseball organizations support youth participation, and be used to aid graduating seniors playing baseball in college with non-scholarship status.
