American Legion baseball is very close to the college format. We play full 7 inning games against teams from various communities near St Charles, MO (District 9) and we have a district/zone/regional/national playoff system that culminates in a World Series covered by ESPN3. Live streaming of lower level games is becoming more prevalent.
Teams are set up at the A (Freshman HS), AA (JV HS), and AAA (Varsity HS/1st year college). Legion teams are saturated with varsity HS players.
American Legion baseball has been providing a high level of competition for 100 years. Legion baseball is played in every state and into Canada. Thousands of Legion ball players have gone on to play college, semi-pro, and professional baseball. A high percentage of HS varsity coaches played Legion baseball. About half of the mlb hall of famers played Legion ball. We are focused on teaching baseball, building strong character, and ambassadors of the game. Our tradition is strong and we take pride in our commitments.
We offer a college-like environment, a free Legion-only showcase attended by several college coaches, all-star games, fall ball, winter training, and various tournament opportunities.
