ROCKPORT—Throughout the American Legion baseball season, Rockport Manager Jim Haaff has said he would have a dangerous team if he ever had the luxury of playing with a full roster.
Post 254 proved him right with a regional championship Friday.
Three players each drove in three runs and Rockport scored in every inning of a 15-1, seven-inning blowout of Jasper to claim the title.
