For many American Legion Baseball fans, a perfect summer day is spent sitting in the stands, watching a Legion World Series game. Those who are unable to attend the upcoming World Series in Spokane, Wash., Aug. 13-17, can enjoy the next best thing: watching the games online, as they're played.
All 14 World Series games taking place this year at Avista Stadium will be available for live viewing on the Legion's Web site . Fans tuning in will hear play-by-play announcements from all-time leader in home runs, Jeff Kent, as well as longtime Legion baseball supporter, Jim Darby.
Last year's World Series in Fargo, N.D., marked the Legion's first-ever live streaming of games, and all expectations were exceeded. More than 42,000 visitors from 15 countries visited the site, watching a total of 2.4 million minutes of play throughout the four-day tournament to see who would claim the championship title.
