Dave Leonhard will be honored as part of the homecoming celebration.
Dave Leonhard will be the first to tell you: He was just another team player at Kenwood High School. "I couldn't put anybody out in baseball my senior year. I was an OK cross country runner, just middle of the pack, but I got better at all that stuff as I got older," he said. "I had a decent arm, I could run and jump, I just couldn't play the games very well." Of course, he played well enough to be part of a county baseball championship, play baseball at Johns Hopkins University and, eventually, pitch for the Baltimore Orioles. Before Friday night's homecoming football game against Franklin, Kenwood will induct the 71-year-old Leonhard and nine others into its athletic hall of fame. The ceremony takes place at Kenwood at 5 p.m. Someone …
