Since 1925, The American Legion has sponsored a nationwide youth baseball program. During these past seven decades, millions of young players have enjoyed playing baseball. The American Legion and their 2.8 million members have raised millions of dollars each year for players to learn the importance of teamwork, discipline, leadership and good sportsmanship. The American Legion sponsors American Legion Baseball to give players an opportunity to develop their skills, personal fitness, leadership qualities and to have fun.

American Legion Code of Sportsmanship

Keep The Rules;  Keep Faith With My Teammates; Keep My Temper; Keep Myself Fit; Keep A Stout Heart In Defeat; Keep My Pride Under In Victory; Keep A Sound Soul; A Clean Mind And A Healthy Body."

Important Item Applicable to All Programs - The National Executive Committee at the 2016 American Legion Convention passed Resolution 16. Resolution 16 outlines expectations regarding flag respect for those involved in American Legion youth programs. Participants of Legion Baseball, Boys State, Boys Nation and other programs will show proper respect to the U.S. Flag at all times, including during the national anthem. The resolution recommends department and post leaders of all Legion programs educate individuals in advance about this expectation; if youth cannot or will not meet it, they should not participate in Legion programs.

Legion Baseball Update - 2022

For the first time in many years Post 91 will not be sponsoring a Legion Baseball team. It appears there is not a League to play in. This compounds the recruiting challenges for Legion Baseball as even if we recruited a team the existing leagues are too far away for our players. As we learn more we will provide updates here.
