Registration open for the 2018 American Legion Baseball season

Registration for the 2018 American Legion Baseball season is now open at www.baseball.legion.org.

In 2017, over 3,600 teams participated in the nation’s preeminent youth baseball league, vying for a chance to reach the American Legion World Series in Shelby, N.C., where each of the eight teams played on national television, with games broadcast on ESPNU.

In 2018, new rule changes include changes to the pitch count rule and seven inning games in national tournament play.

Returning coaches may renew their teams or register new teams. New coaches should contact their department’s chairman to find out more information about state-specific rules and deadlines.

For more information on Legion Baseball, visit www.legion.org/baseball.

Insurance purchases will be available on Feb. 1.
