2020 Season Canceled

Posted by Whitestown Post 1113 on May 10 2020 at 06:30PM PDT


Unfortunately, the American Legion Baseball program for the 2020 season has been canceled for the Department of New York, including all Senior and Junior teams in District V. Below is the email that was sent on Saturday evening, May 9th from the New York Baseball Chairman, with the official notification. At the end of the email is the letter that Mr. Mayfield refers to (in PDF format) that was sent to all Departments by the American Legion National Organization issuing the decision.


Attached is the letter that is posted on the National website. Because of this decision by National:

The 2020 Department of New York American Legion Baseball season is hereby cancelled.

Make sure this information gets to all of your coaches and managers. I am asking that our Department Adjutant, Jim Casey please forward the attached letter to all in the Department of New York. I have no other information other than what is in the letter. As information becomes available, I will pass it on.

American Legion
Department of New York
Baseball Chairman
Bruce A. Mayfield
