South Dakota American Legion Baseball Teams get green light to play ball


Sports Staff - May 14, 2020

UNDATED - On Sunday, the national headquarters for American Legion Baseball shut down all national sponsorship and involvement for the 2020 season. There was a section in the letter that was open to interpretation as to whether local baseball could be supported or not. On Wednesday, interpretation on that section of the letter became clearer.

With the new information, the Department Executive Committee of American Legion Baseball had an emergency meeting and approved a motion that will allow the South Dakota American Legion Baseball program to happen as long as it’s administered by sponsoring coaches and managers.

Teams will also need to follow guidelines recommended by the state Athletic Commission that they abide by local, state and national COVID-19 policies, have insurance and have permission from city officials to play.

So, now, teams will need to develop and approve local rules for playing baseball. It is recommended South Dakota American Legion Rules be used to play.

There are hopes some games could be ready to play by June.
