When Scott Strader and Richie Pegram launched the Reidsville Luckies Batting Academy, they wanted to connect with the community’s rich baseball history.
The original Reidsville Luckies were a minor league baseball team based in Reidsville, North Carolina, USA. They played in the Bi-State League from 1935–1940 and returned in 1947 as part of the Tri-State League in 1947. They switched to the Carolina League in 1948 and remained there till the team was dissolved after the 1955 season.
So you might say the new Reidsville Luckies had to step into some pretty big shoes, but based on their success, it turned out to be a perfect fit. Now, with their No. 1 national 8u ranking, they have added another chapter of baseball history to the city of Reidsville.
