Metro Schools Graduates Receive Butch McCord Legacy Scholarship
Lorenzo Carrion and Brandon Majors, both 2018 graduates of Cane Ridge High School, were awarded the inaugural Butch McCord Legacy Scholarship by Major League Baseball’s Nashville RBI program on Sept. 19.
McCord, a former Negro league player and local advocate for youth baseball and softball, gifted Nashville RBI with scholarship funds to provide two players with scholarships each year for the next five years.
Carrion and Majors have played with RBI and represented Nashville in the RBI Southeastern Regional Championship for the last three years. The RBI Nashville Allstar team plays under the name “Nashville Sounds” and has a strong partnership with the minor league baseball team.
The former MNPS students were presented with scholarship checks (Majors – $3,500; Carrion – $2,000) at First Tennessee Park and also received a gift bag from the Nashville Sounds.
Majors attends Columbia State Community College where he plays on the baseball team. He plans to major in physical therapy after he completes his associate degree. Carrion is currently enrolled at Volunteer State Community College.
