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."
This site is dedicated to providing information about the program to the managers, coaches, and players.
Here in Southern Nevada we subcontract out our Legion Baseball, but we oversee the program. We subcontract it to the Nevada Youth Baseball Association. Why? Because we don't have enough legionnaires for this massive time comsuming task but, maybe someday with younger veterans getting involved we will.
Here is an interesting fact about Legion Ball;
We have 68 players in the Baseball Hall of Fame including Ted Williams, Stan Musial, Yogi Berra, Johnny Bench and recently Mike Piazza and our own Greg Maddux.
