He has also coached Majors Old Pro for several years, winning the league championship in 2013.
The Scott Barnum Award, is awarded to the coach who best exemplifies the "spirit" of M-A Little League: "Play Fair, Strive to Win, Do One’s Best". Coaches are nominated by their peers in each division. The M-ALL Board then selects one of these division coaches as the leagues Official Nominee for Positive Coaching Alliance's, the Double-Goal Coach Award. The 2014 winner of The Scott Barnum Awardis Rod MacLeod!
