The team is based out of Atlanta, Georgia.

Legacy & Legends Softball Evaluation and Scouting Report by Coach Al:
The coaching staff must have used some sort of sorcery to put this "dream team" together. This is currently one of the most loaded pitching rotations of all 2024 year group teams. All spin the H*** out of the ball. Miller and Gaetano are both proven pitchers and are well-known and respected in the Southeast Region. Miller throws a ton of strikeouts with a filthy deadly rise. Gaetano has continued to garner D1 Power 5 interest. The McCall kid deserves much more attention as every single time she played a top team she shut them down. Very under the radar since the team she was coming from is lesser known. A very intentional and intense pitcher. Anders is raw however her ceiling is absolutely high. She has a great frame to build upon and throws hard. With mechanical adjustments made, she'll be mid 60's instead of low 60's. Real long athlete with a great D1 type of frame. Very high ceiling and may be the biggest sleeper of the 2024 pitching class.
This team will make a lot of noise and win a lot of hardware if the pitching staff stays together and healthy going into the Spring of 2023. The batting lineup is equally as impressive with a lethal bat from top to bottom where the coaches went with a UCLA philosophy of stacking stud 4 & 5 Tool athletes to create speedy base path chaos and produce runs with long ball and small ball skilled players.
This Fall will be a great indicator of what is to come in 2023 for the major national championship tournaments.
