We too are missing all things ALWS, but know it’s best for the health of our community.

Missing the American Legion World Series?!!
I know you are!

This coming weeked would have been the Seventh Inning Stretch Festival in Uptown Shelby and next week would have seen the arrival of Regional Winners to play in the World Series.

Well, even though we miss the American Legion World Series this summer due to the pandemic, we can still see some signs from God coming from the baseball diamond in the Sunday School Lesson Starter for August 9 that is scheduled for posting here on Saturday evening at 6 PM. Watch for the signs....

Good teams can do great things. On July 17, American Legion Post 68’s Aces are hoping to be the team one young man needs in his greatest battle.

"We come from an area of the country where our spring seasons have crazy weather. ... But I'll tell you this: That Shelby rain was like nothing that we had ever witnessed. I don't think I've ever seen rain that hard." -- Idaho Falls coach Ryan Alexander reflecting on his team's experience in winning the 2019 American Legion World Series.

Unfortunately, concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic have led to the cancelation of the 2020 American Legion World Series and the eight regional tournaments. Check with your department and posts to get up-to-date information regarding play at the district and state level.

From our story:
The decision to cancel was extremely difficult but deemed necessary, first and foremost in the interest of health and safety, and in the face of uncertainty. Americanism Commission Richard Anderson noted, “These times are unparalleled. And while it is distressing to think of all those youth across the nation who are disappointed to learn of the cancellation of American Legion programs this year, it would be a much, much greater tragedy if even just one of those youth were to fall ill during a program."

As a mom to a Legion player , I beg you to reconsider this decision. Instead of canceling, postpone. These young men have lost enough already this year.
I have several file cabinets and storage compartments that I have regarding the American Legion World Series. Do you have any interest in them? I don't know at this time (pending) if I will return. It's been fun, it's been real and I've made life-long friends for the past 48 years.
Don't forget to pick up shirts today!
I believe a 4 or 5 oclock game would have been a great idea?
Did Danville Post 210 play ?
Post 210 .... You rock.
Game status?
When does play resume?
Any updates on games for tonight? Playing? Tracy Stilwell
Are the games that were canceled yesterday being televised this morning?
Fun at the ballpark!
