My first forum entry has to do with legion baseball, seems kind of silly but here we go. Legion baseball is dying a slow and painful death. My son has signed his NLOI to play baseball in Missouri and we made the mistake of letting him play one more season of legion baseball with his high school teammates. This has been a summer of mediocre baseball played against mediocre teams and any success he has at the next level will be in spite of legion baseball instead of because of it. My son has gone backwards this summer while the kids he will be competing against starting in 45 days have spent the summer facing legitimate competition and getting better while he plays against kids that knocked a winters worth of dust of their gloves the night before their first practice in May. If your kids have any intend of playing baseball at the next level please pursue programs like the Sluggers or whatever you can find. Small town legion baseball is just not very good.
