Since 1925, The American Legion has sponsored a nationwide youth baseball program. During these past seven decades, millions of young players have enjoyed playing baseball. The American Legion and their 2 million members have raised millions of dollars each year for players to learn the importance of teamwork, discipline, leadership and good sportsmanship. The American Legion sponsors American Legion Baseball to give players an opportunity to develop their skills, personal fitness, leadership qualities and to have fun.
For years our Post sponsored a Legion Baseball team, but interest waned and teams could no longer be fielded. Today, we make available through the auspices of the Town of Riga, a baseball field for use by local baseball teams.
Below is the American Legion Code of Sportsmanship which applies to Legion Baseball, but which is a Code worthy of all athletic participants following. We have included here as food for thought.
American Legion Code of Sportsmanship
Keep The Rules; Keep Faith With My Teammates; Keep My Temper; Keep Myself Fit; Keep A Stout Heart In Defeat; Keep My Pride Under In Victory; Keep A Sound Soul; A Clean Mind And A Healthy Body."
This site is dedicated to providing information about the program to the managers, coaches, and players.
