American Legion Baseball in High Gear Around Here-- Part 1

I have recently become aware of the existence of a baseball team at our American Legion Post 703 here in Fox Lake, Illinois, of which I am a member of the Sons of the American Legion because of my grandfather, a World War I veteran.

The teams in area, the Illinois 10th District American Legion Baseball are in high gear with their season which runs from mid-June to mid-July.  All the boys on our team also play on the Grant High School baseball team.  Home games are played at Grant High School here in Fox Lake.

Last year, there were 14 teams in the league and Lake Zurich came in first with a 12-0 record.  Our Fox Lake team, the Fox Lake Bulldogs, were 8-4-1.  Other teams were also all from Lake County:  Lake Villa, Zion, Waukegan, Deerfield, Grayslake, Mundelein, Libertyville, Lake Forest, Gurnee and Wauconda.
