For the constant dedication and efforts to develop his players, Leggett was inducted into the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in January 2014. He joined six other inductees during ABCA’s annual convention, Pete Dunn (Stetson), Tink Larson (Waseca (MN) High School), Paul Mainieri (Louisiana State), Jim O’Brien (Los Angeles Harbor College), Augie Schmidt IV (Carthage College), and Jimmie Wasem (Eastern Washington).

“It’s a great honor to be recognized in this way,” said Leggett. “It’s a great compliment to all the players and coaches who I’ve worked with in the past. It’s a culmination of a lot of hard work, both on and off the field. I want to thank everyone who has been involved along the way. I would like to accept this honor on behalf of The University of Vermont, Western Carolina University, and Clemson University.”
