    Update to teams 2019

    CHANGE FOR 2019

    Upon completion of on-line registrations, 50 players have signed up for the VFW/Legion season.   As in past years, the Baseball Committee analyzes the total number of players registered as well as the number of players in the respective age groups.  In the recent past the Legion/VFW has sponsored 2 VFW teams and 1 legion team.

    This year, with the number of players registered that are eligible to play Legion baseball, the Baseball Committee decided to replace VFW Gold with Jr Legion Gold.  This change allows current juniors with a birthday after December 31, 2001 to be eligible for Jr Legion, when in the past they would only eligible for Legion.   In the past the cut off was June 1.  What this means is more players are eligible for Jr. Legion than would have been for VFW. 

    Without this change, and due to National Legion rules regarding limitations on roster size, we may have been in a position where players could have been cut from our program.  The Committee’s goal is to avoid that scenario whenever possible.  This change avoids that.

    The player selection process is unchanged, and try-outs will be the same as in the past.  The Jr Legion team will be coached by Mike Munce, who in the past has coached VFW Gold.  Jr Legion will participate in many of the same tournaments as in the past including the New Ulm Jr Classic.  Except for the expanded age eligibility, very little will change locally due to the switch from VFW Gold to Jr Legion. 

    More details will be provided and discussed at the respective team meetings in May and I look forward to seeing everyone at try-outs and the team meetings.
