Grant Leonard was ready to give up baseball.

The Mokena native and Lincoln-Way East graduate went to North Central College in Naperville for the 2015-16 school year, ready to begin his career as a pitcher for the Cardinals baseball team.

Leonard went through fall practices and scrimmages and enjoyed that, but things just did not feel right.
