What is American Legion Baseball?

American Legion Baseball was first proposed by Sioux Falls (SD) attorney Frank G. McCormick in 1925. McCormick believed that athletics played a vital role in the growth of young men into responsible citizens. Beginning in 1926, American Legion Baseball became the first athletic program in the world to provide a national baseball tournament for teenagers.

The American Legion was founded in 1919 for veteran's returning from World War I. Currently, there are around 3 million veteran's in the American Legion nationwide. There are 14,000 posts across the country with the national headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The 2011 season was an excellent one for the Mandan Baseball program. Throughout the program post-season success was found. The post-season success was started by the Maverick 10 year olds, who took third place at the state tournament in Wahpeton and the Maverick 11 year olds who took second place at the state tournament in Mandan. The Veteran's 14 year olds went 1-2 in their state tournament in Williston. The Mandan A's hosted the American Junior Legion State Tournament where they also took runner-up honors, qualifying them for the Mid-States Regional Tournament in Fargo. The A's went 0-2 in the regional but represented Mandan well all season long.

The icing on the cake was the State Championship by the Chiefs in Grand Forks. The Chiefs defeated Williston in the title game 8-4. It is the 10th state championship for the Chiefs and the first since 2000. At the regional tournament in Dickinson the Chiefs finished 2-2, losing to regional runner-up Carroll County, IA and Central Plains Regional & Legion World Series Champion Eden Priaire, MN.
