2020 Baseball Season Cancelled

The American Legion of Iowa Baseball Committee discussed the direct impact COVID-19 has on the 2020 season on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. The committee made the decision to cancel the 2020 season after careful consideration and input from coaches. We understand this is a very difficult decision, however, given the uncertainties and variables with our current pandemic, the safety of all involved with the program was paramount. The Department of Iowa will be working diligently to secure the refund of insurance and registration fees paid for all teams involved this year. There is no need for teams, coaches, or posts to formally request this from the Department.
