2020 American Legion Baseball regionals, World Series canceledAs the coronavirus pandemic is creating unpredictability worldwide with its duration and public health regulations and restrictions across the nation, The American Legion is facing an improbable situation.The Americanism Commission, in consultation with National Commander James William “Bill” Oxford, announces cancellation of all 2020 American Legion Baseball national tournaments. This includes all eight Regional Tournaments and the American Legion World Series in Shelby, N.C.Many baseball coaches are unable to complete prerequisite league play scheduled between May and July due to the closure of schools and playing facilities across the nation. In August, more than 500 players, coaches and volunteer staff are scheduled to travel and participate in eight regional tournaments and the American Legion World Series, collectively attracting thousands of fans and spectators. Many of these individuals are of a high-risk demographic.https://www.legion.org/baseball/248726/ ... s-canceled

I hope Legion doesnt pull the plug too early....and they stick to playing until the very end....I can tell you my kid is playing this summer if its possible to play....come June, if there is no longer a ban of group gatherings...and things come back somewhat....Im hoping Legion baseball is there...if Not Mike Dandrea or Jason larivere how much is AAU for the summer??? I would much rather see Maine Legion start later than earlier...especially if there is no regionals...Lotta these kids should be playing baseball right up to the point of them entering at the College level this fall....end it Sept 1.....push it back if needed.....
