After settling in Cherry Hill in 1959, James J. Lehman began attending meetings organized by the Cherry Hill American Little League. He sat in the back for the better part of a year, waiting to offer whatever services he could. It would be something as simple as a lawn mower that would bring Mr. Lehman out to Langston Field, which at the time was on Burnt Mill Road. Sometime around 1960, the grass around the diamond needed a trim, and Mr. Lehman happened to have the equipment to do so. It was at Cherry Hill's Little League fields, now on Ashbrook Road, that Mr. Lehman would find his sanctuary for the next half-century.
