Build it and they will come!
For the first time since 1952, American Legion baseball makes a return to Haywood County when the Post 47 Dragoons Baseball Club takes the field on May 22 when it hosts Henderson County Post 77 in an Area IV West Division game.
The Haywood County American Legion Post 47 Baseball Club is offering fans a means of supporting the team directly through the Grand Slam Club. All contributions of the Grand Slam Club go directly back into the ballclub for operational expenses, team travel, uniforms, equipment, etc.
