Latest news coming by way of Twitter:
The Post 87 HiToms appeal has been denied.
Press conference Thursday at 3 at Finch Field.
*****Never thought the Post 87 HiToms had a chance to win this appeal….It made way too much sense for the American Legion office in Indianapolis to rule in their favor…
Don’t see how anything good can out of all of this, but maybe the American Legion baseball group can get their act together and get things in order for the future…Just couldn’t see them going back and re-playing those games…If they did that it would make the Legion officials look bad in the eyes of their followers and they had way too much pride to give in and let this happen in the favor of Post 87, again it made way too much sense for Post 87 to receive a favorable ruling…
Shelby has way too much power and as the host of the World Series there is no way the National Legion office was going to do anything to mess up that apple-cart…
This has turned out way bad for Post 87, but like we were saying earlier, maybe the Legion leaders will find a way to get out of their own way and get this right in future….Let’s hope so….*****
