  • American Legion Baseball is one of the most historic institutions in youth sports, with over 90 years of tradition

  • With over 3,600 teams in all 50 states and Canada (and potentially Puerto Rico and Germany in 2016), Legion Baseball develops tens of thousands of players every year

  • The program’s rich history has sent thousands of players to Major League Baseball, including 68 Baseball Hall of Famers, such as Ted Williams, Stan Musial, Johnny Bench, Roger Maris, Yogi Berra, Don Mattingly, Tony Gwynn, Greg Maddux and 2016 Hall of Fame inductee Mike Piazza

  • Current MLB stars who came up through Legion Baseball include Albert Pujols, Justin Verlander, Madison Bumgardner, Mark Teixeira and Jacob de Grom

  • While many programs just focus on throwing hard or hitting far, Legion Baseball also shows the importance of sportsmanship, good health and active citizenship. American Legion Baseball has been, and continues to be, a stepping stone to manhood for millions of young men who have gone on to serve their country or community, raise families or play the sport at the highest level.

  • The Legion World Series has grown significantly and is a major event, with over 100,000 in paid attendance in 2015, marking the fifth straight year with an attendance record over the course of the event

  • All Legion World Series pool play games are broadcast on ESPN3, while the semifinals and final are on ESPNU with viewership of over 100,000 for the title game on ESPNU.

  • Legion Baseball gives players the opportunity to play for something with their team. Teams can advance to their state, regional and World Series for a chance to be the top team in the nation

  • The Legion has had a long-standing relationship with Major League Baseball, which includes benefits such as monetary grants and the ability for the Legion World Series champion to go to an MLB World Series game in the past

  • Legion Baseball is one of the most affordable youth sports programs

  • The program focuses on player safety, with all teams registered, insured and featuring coaches who pass in-depth background checks through an independent agency, Protect Youth Sports
