Jo Adell Foundation

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky surrounded by some really good people. My family was a huge part of helping me become who I am, but the number of people in the Louisville area who supported me along the way were just as important. From my first coach at Lyndon Recreation, to my Ballard High School community, I was always surrounded by people who worked hard, who gave their time and who were kind. When I was just 15 years old, I knew I wanted to be a professional baseball player. It was also during that time, that I began to travel nationally playing ball. When I was playing baseball in different cities and states, I began to really appreciate the values I grew up with. Now as a professional baseball player, I have the platform to promote these values.
