ABOUT THE AMERICAN LEGION and AMERICAN LEGION BASEBALL
 
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, war-time veteranís organization, devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is a not-for-profit community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members, men and women, in nearly 15,000 American Legion posts worldwide.
  
Since 1925, The American Legion has sponsored nationwide baseball programs. During these past eight decades, millions of young players have enjoyed the opportunity to play American Legion baseball and its graduates range from Ted Williams to Jim Rice and most Hall of Famers in-between. Today, American Legion baseball is for accomplished players born on or after January 1, 1995 and its current players represent the finest talent among high school and college aged players across the country.
