Prior to the March 24 baseball game against the visiting Montrose Indians, Delta High School honored a member of the Delta baseball community, Amos Leon, who had been instrumental in helping local youngsters learn about and play the game of baseball. His integral part of Delta's baseball community began when he played for Delta High School from 1953-1956.

As time passed, Leon coached Old Timers Association (OTA) teams where he taught his players to love and respect the game of baseball from a very young age as well as teaching them to be good teammates.

Many of his former players are currently active in coaching and working with youth today and continue to share the values that Leon instilled in them.

A bench, in his honor and commitment to the game of baseball will be used by Delta High School to score Panther baseball games for years to come.
