American Legion Baseball in High Gear Here: Going to Tonight's Game Against Lake Zurich

The Fox Lake Bulldogs of Post 703 in Fox Lake, Illinois, travels to Lake Zurich for a game tonight.  I'll be there.

From the American Legion Site:

"American Legion Baseball is a national institution, having thrived through a world war, several nation tragedies, and times of great prosperity as well as great despair."

The 2016 American Legion World Series will be August 11-16 this year in Shelby, North Carolina.

One of the notable Major League Baseball players who played Legion ball was Bob feller.

The best-named team is the Hooker Horny Toads of Hooker Oklahoma in the panhandle area.  They are sponsored by the Jack Goosen Post #137.  They report great tee-shirt sales, including the one I bought when passing through.

Teams play in June and July.
