ABOUT LEIGHTON ACCARDO
Leighton Accardo was a founding member of the Arizona Peaches, an all-girls baseball program in Chandler, Arizona that has grown to include over 150 girls. At a young age, Leighton was a talented, spirited four-sport athlete beloved by her community. In 2019, she was diagnosed with Stage 4 pediatric cancer and fought bravely with her friends and family standing beside her, every step of the way.
In November 2020, at the age of 9, Leighton passed away. The Leighton Accardo Series was created to honor the memory of Leighton, and pays tribute to the immense impact she has had on the entire girls baseball community.
Today and always, we remember Leighton as a strong, kind-hearted teammate, sister, daughter, and friend — and during this tournament and beyond, we will always be playing for Leighton. #playinforLeighton
