*Our teams plays in one of the largest districts in the State of Missouri with teams from the following counties: St. Charles, Warren, Lincoln, and Franklin. Legion baseball plays post season tournaments to determine district, state champions, and even national world series champions at the Senior Level
*Our district has historically played all of our league games with wood bats, but we vote on this every year and this could change.
Each level of play typically has 10-14 league opponents at each age level. League schedule consists of playing each team 1 or 2 times (typically a regular season of 12-25 games). With tournaments included schedule can get to 35-40 games during the summer.
Summer schedule starts when players have concluded with their high school season. The season ends in the 2nd/3rd week of July every summer.
Post season play begins with a District Tournament in the 1st/2nd week of July and can conclude with a state championship tournament at the end of July. Varsity level can play even deeper. The varsity level of legion plays all the way to an 8 team World Series Held in Shelby, NC every year.
