Since 1925, the American Legion has sponsored a nationwide youth baseball program. During these past eight decades, millions of young players have enjoyed playing baseball. The American Legion and their 2.8 million members have raised millions of dollars each year for players to learn the importance of teamwork, discipline, leadership and good sportsmanship. The American Legion sponsors American Legion Baseball to give players an opportunity to develop their skills, personal fitness, leadership qualities and to have fun.
American Legion Baseball is a highly competitive program primarily comprised of high school ball players that want to compete and further develop their baseball skills after the school baseball season ends. Many Players use it as a step between High School Baseball and College Baseball.
Unlike travel and showcase baseball, all American Legion baseball coaches are vetted by a criminal background check. American Legion registered teams are required to have Liability and Supplemental Medical Insurance.
American Legion Baseball costs a fraction of the expense to play when compared to playing summer travel baseball. There is ample opportunity for new players to join and for coaches who want to start a team.
American Legion Baseball has a long history in New Jersey. The season typically begins around the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The state tournament is normally held in mid-July. Post Season Play also includes a Regional Tournament and a World Series held annually in Shelby, NC.
