Andy McManama has been a poster child for the World Baseball Academy, fulfilling our mission. Born and raised in Fort Wayne, Andy attended Carroll High School. Throughout his middle school and high school years, Andy attended numerous World Baseball Academy training programs.
While playing for the Carroll Chargers Baseball program, Andy had a career-ending injury to his lower back.

Through his perseverance and initiative, Andy has become a key instructor and the full-time Tournament Director of the Hoosier Classic Baseball Tournaments at a very young age. Under his leadership, the Hoosier Classic Tournaments have continued to see significant growth in participation. Recently, Andy was promoted to Director of Operations overseeing the facility management of the Outdoor Campus and WBA Programming.
