Ron Cortese, Legends Founder, has always been the consummate sports fan. In addition to Ron’s background as an amateur athlete, having played NCAA Tennis in college, Ron has extensive experience in running corporate sports leagues.
Legends can be traced back to the year 2000. Ron was playing in a Northern Virginia adult recreational baseball league when he had an epiphany following the news that the league was up for sale. Ron worked in IT at the time and can still remember thinking, “it would be nice to try something different!” After doing his due diligence Ron decided to try to buy the league. In the end the purchase of that particular league did not go through, but the idea and desire was established. After some time had passed, Ron decided to “start from scratch and build (his) own league” in Fairfax County, the largest county in Virginia.
