News and Announcements
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 related spikes and mandates, the Annual Whitestown Post Baseball Awards Banquet has been canceled. The 2021 season was very successful, culminating in the league regular season title and advancement to the District V championship game. Thanks go out to all of the players and coaches for their hard work and commitment… as well as to our fans and the members of the legion for their continued support. We will greatly miss the five players in our program that will age out next season – Ryan Cardone, Noah Collea, Logan Michel, Connor Montrose, and Noah Scranton. Best of luck in all of your future endeavors. Congratulations to all of the season award winners, which can be viewed by clicking on the ‘Awards Banquet’ link. Award plaques and scholarships will be distributed in the near future. Please stay safe!

PLAY BALL! The National Headquarters of the American Legion has announced that baseball will be reset for normal play for the 2021 season, culminating with the World Series in Shelby, NC in August. The Department of New York has also sent information to all Districts within the state with instructions to start the season after the conclusion of the High School baseball season. For District V, league games will start on June 14th. As more information is received, this website will be updated, including tryouts for both the Senior and Junior teams.
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.
Department of New York
Bruce A. Mayfield
