American Legion Baseball

A player born on or after January 1, 2002 is not. Therefore you may have a 19 year old who is eligible but you must also be at least 14 years old to play. If anyone has any questions on eligibility or anything they can contact me at 435-820-8379. With a good group of returning players from last year's State Championship team I feel this year can be another very successful season.
