American Legion Post 47 baseball coming in 2013
I have never drank the “Kool-Aid” for this summer “recreational” baseball thing that Tuscola and Pisgah currently play once the high school baseball season concludes.
Since my arrival to Haywood County in July of 2004, I’ve asked the question “why rec ball” numerous times. I’ve been told the purpose is to develop skills. However, in my humble opinion, the problem is it doesn’t even remotely come close to improving the skill level and puts our baseball programs behind other programs throughout the state that have legion ballclubs.
To make my case, South Stanly (1A), Whiteville (2A), Weddington (3A) and Middle Creek (4A) recently won NCHSAA baseball championships.
Can you guess what each team plays during the summer?
If you guessed American Legion baseball, give yourself a gold star.
