  • Legion ball needs more teams in...

    The declining number of American Legion baseball teams in southwestern Indiana has to make one wonder about the future of the sport in this area.
    As recently as 1998 this area hosted a five-team sectional, including Perry County’s entry. The winners of four southern Indiana sectionals would advance to a regional.
    In 1999, the last year Perry County fielded a Legion team, the sectional was down to four teams.
    By 2011 it was a two-team sectional, with just Rockport and Boonville in it.
