American Legion Baseball Is Back in Greensboro
Legion Ball is back. After over a decade, the first ball was pitched by a Greensboro American Legion team.
Thanks to the vision of Ken “kenny” Mackovic the manager of the new American Legion team and many others, history was made tonight(Tuesday).
“I want to thank American Legion Post 386 for stepping up to the plate and sponsoring us. I feel the young men can learn a lot from this tremendous organization and from its members who have sacrificed so much serving our great nation. Talk about American heroes!”
So far, the team is comprised of athletes from the area, including Page High School that is hosting the home games. Head Coach is Shawn Hawk and Assistant Head Coach is Phil Giurintano. Also volunteering to get the league up and running, Jeff Shell stated, “it is critical that these athletes have something at this age to broaden there experience and take competition levels up a notch.”
The Bombers lost their first game to the Hitoms. Coach Hawk commented, “i M proud of the team. Legion ball is about as close to playing pro ball without pre- season. The schedule is rigorous and intense – the games are almost the only option where the athletes get to practice as a team.”
