American Legion state tourney returning to Bangor

... State Legion officials typically award the annual eight-team event on a rotational basis to each of the four zones statewide with this year’s tourney set to be staged within Zone 4, or York County.

But when plans to hold the event at historic Goodall Park in Sanford could not be firmed up, Zone 1 (central and northern Maine) officials accepted the opportunity to host and will hold this year’s tourney July 26-30 at Husson University’s Winkin Complex.

“I got a call the end of last week when they were unsure about Goodall’s status to see if we’d be willing to host it,” said longtime Zone 1 commissioner Dave Paul. “[Husson University baseball coach] Jason [Harvey] has been so good to us over the years that I wanted to give them the right of first refusal and they said they’d love to do it.”

Zone 1 team folds, opens door for temporary Legion baseball ‘free agency’

BANGOR, Maine — The era of free agency in sports has arrived in the American Legion Zone 1 baseball ranks — at least for this summer.

The recent decision to fold the Motor City of Bangor entry when a head coach could not be found, along with an earlier move by Penquis of Dover-Foxcroft to field only a Junior Legion team this summer and the lack of a Legion baseball program in the Midcoast region has left older players from 25 high schools within Zone 1’s vast central and northern Maine geographic reach without an affiliated Legion program for which to play.

Under a plan developed by state Legion field director Dennis Damon and Zone 1 commissioner Dave Paul, players from 18 of those schools located north or west of Greater Bangor will be able to try out for any of the three Senior Legion teams in that area — Bangor, Brewer and Hampden.

Zone 1 Legion teams to play revised, 15-game schedule

BANGOR, Maine — American Legion Zone 1 baseball officials have adopted a 15-game, regular-season schedule for the 2017 season that begins on Saturday, June 17.

Opening-day games in the six-team zone will match Bangor at Brewer, Hampden at Skowhegan and Post 51 of Oakland at Trenton.

The June 17 schedule could change for some teams if their respective high school programs qualify for state championship games, which also are scheduled for that date.

Zone 1 teams will play each other three times leading to a five-team Zone 1 tournament that begins July 20, according to Zone 1 commissioner Dave Paul.

Bangor to host New England Junior Legion baseball tourney

BANGOR, Maine — The Senior League World Series may be gone after a 15-year stay in the Queen City, but Mansfield Stadium won’t be without a significant baseball presence on the first weekend of August.

The New England Zone 1 Junior Legion championships, an eight-team, three-day event, is scheduled to be played Aug. 4-6.

The tournament will feature five New England state champions — all but Vermont — along with a second Maine team as the host state and two other qualifying teams to be determined, according to Maine Junior Legion director Rod Stevens of Skowhegan.

The single-elimination format will guarantee each participating team at least two games, with four games on Aug. 4, two championship semifinals and two consolation games on Aug. 5, and the third-place game and championship game on Aug. 6.

Re: Legion 2017: June 17.... Junior Legion begins June 11

Postby fromthebench » Tue Jun 13, 2017 8:40 am

One sidenote, some of the Portland area teams are opting for a wood bat league this summer and are foregoing Jr. Legion. I think 10 teams are participating and it's for returning varsity players. Should be interesting. Wooden bats will bring something new to the table for sure. :)
