How to find to an American Legion team

Players who have played American Legion Baseball in prior years must register, tryout and play for the last team they played for.  In certain instances, players who fail to make the team they last played for may request a Transfer from their team manager and, if granted, must register and tryout for the next closest Base School team to their parent's legal residence.  Players who are otherwise eligible for a Transfer may only obtain one Transfer during their American Legion eligibility.

Players who have not played American Legion Baseball in a prior year, with certain exceptions, must register and tryout for the Base School team closest to their parent's legal residence.  A player's legal residence is established as of March 31 of each year.  Players who do not attend the public high school serving their parent's legal residence, in most cases, have a one time option to play for the Base School team closest to their parent's legal residence or the Base School team closest to the school they attend.  Once this option has been exercised, it becomes final and binding for the remainder of their eligibility.   MapQuest is used to determine which Base School team is closest to a player's legal residence or closest to the school the player attends. For the list of Senior and Junior Base School teams, click on Programs, then Senior or Junior and Team List.

The recruiting rules are established by the National organization and can be confusing.  The rules are available on the National web site baseball@legion.org. Specific questions may be addressed to the local District Chairman, (see the list of District Chairmen on the About Us tab) or to the Department Chairman, Dick Paster, rpaster@prclawoffice.com.
