American Legion Baseball

Legion Baseball is something new to me. Either it doesn't really exist in upstate New York, or I just never paid attention to it when I was growing up. If anybody else is like me, Legion Baseball is what every kid plays after school lets out for the summer. It's basically a way for them to keep playing baseball. The large majority of teams are high school level, but there are a few younger leagues too. All teams are sponsored by an American Legion Post # and the teams encompass larger regions, so often times they are composed of kids from several school districts.

Anywho, shot one on Tuesday.

I can't count on both hands and both feet how many sporting events have been canceled due to rain since I started at the Advocate nearly two months ago. This was one of them. Tried to include the weather into a photo. It required some less-than-perfect selective toning, but I like it.
