Legion Baseball Preview: Post 15 will be young

Email News Alerts

With the Detroit Lakes Legion Post 15 baseball team experiencing a numbers crunch, a rebuilding year with plenty of youth will be in store this summer.


The Post 15 squad will have just four players who played varsity baseball this past spring, with the rest of the team being predominately 16 year olds.

“My philosophy will be to have the kids improve,” said Legion head coach Mitch McLeod. “Yes, at this level you want to win, but the main goal is to improve.”
