First Game in the Books

What an awesome day!!!  The Eureka Legion Baseball team won their first game against Macomb, 10-4.  They lost the second game 5-3 but overall they played great.  I'm very proud of all of the players and appreciate all of the hard work they've put in over the past couple of weeks to get ready.  I would like to thank Joe Miller for all of his hard work and dedication to the Legion baseball program.  Volunteering to coach is a huge commitment, I will never be able to show the right amount of gratitude for all of your time.  Thank you too to all of the parents for your support so far and all you will do in the games to come.  There are many more games to play and many more wins out there for us to get.  Keep up all of the hard work!  Congratulations on the first win.

Field of Dreams

The Legion baseball team has the opportunity to play at the Corn Crib in Normal (home of the CornBelters).  The catch is, they have to sell 75 tickets to a CornBelters game in order to play.
See two games for the price of one.  All tickets are box seats.

Please help support two great baseball programs by buying a ticket.

For tickets see one of the players, Coach Miller or Nate Wertz.

I would like to thank EVERYONE that had anything to do with the Eureka American Legion Baseball Team's 1st Annual Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday.  The event was a huge success and wouldn't have been possible without the help of many people (too many to list individually).  I'm so thankful that the people and businesses of Eureka supports great organizations like ours. 

We served 350 people. 

Due to the players working hard to sell tickets for 6 weeks prior to the event and the many people who purchased tickets at the door we made a great profit.  The money will be used to purchase uniforms, equipment, pay umpires and pay for tournament fees. 

Please keep an eye out for our players wearing their hats and shirts around town.  Please come support us again when we start playing in June.  You'll be watching some very competitive baseball.  A printable schedule is currently posted on our website http://legionball.blogspot.com/p/schedule.html (www.eurekalegion.com). 

Lastly, please let us know what you thought regardless if your comments are good or bad.  We need to get feedback so we know how to improve our event for the years to come.  We can be reached by email at legionpost466@gmail.com.
