Post 247 Baseball Team for 2016
Combine America’s national pastime with a winning tradition and you get American Legion Baseball. Since 1925, American Legion Baseball has been a key part of the journey to adulthood for millions of young men. Some have gone on to play the sport professionally, other Legion Baseball graduates make their mark in business, politics and other fields. In short, American Legion Baseball alumni are proud contributing members of society and are often among the most successful people in their respective careers.

American Legion Baseball has been turning out college and Major League Baseball (MLB) players for decades. Nearly 75 percent of Legion Baseball graduates continue playing baseball in college, and about 50 percent of all current MLB players played Legion Baseball. More than 60 Legion Baseball graduates have been inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.

High school aged players are invited to participate in the nation’s most competitive youth baseball program, which has taught teamwork, good sportsmanship and physical fitness to generations of young men, along with promoting citizenship in their communities. With nearly 4,000 teams from all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico, American Legion Baseball is the only program of its kind. Legion Baseball offers opportunities for quality competition in a structured format and team travel to invitational, state, regional and national tournaments. The Legion Baseball World Series games are live-streamed on ESPN3 with the championship game televised live on ESPNU.

Listed below is the Remington Post 247 Baseball Schedule. We encourage everyone to come out to all the games and enjoy some great baseball along with some terrific food served at the concession stand (all profit supports the Post 247 Baseball Program).
