Welcome to the inaugural season of Minnesota American Legion Softball!!
Purpose & Mission
To instill to youth a better understanding of the American way of life and to promote the principles of 100 percent Americanism.
To instill in Minnesota’s youth a sincere desire to develop within themselves a feeling of citizenship, sportsmanship, loyalty, and team spirit.
To aid in the improvement and development of the physical fitness of our country’s youth.
To strengthen and build the nation’s future through our youth.
Build a sense of giving back. It is recommended that all players, coaches, or teams perform at least one veteran community service act as a team, group, or individual during the year. Examples:
Any way to show veterans that you are thankful for their service and the opportunity their service has provided you to represent them, your Community, Family, and Country.
Help your post with a project
Volunteering at or visiting a V.A. Hospital or veterans homes
Our goal is to make softball accessible to softball players across the state.
Where/How do we register?
Registration for the 2022 season is now closed. Registration for the 2023 year will open Jan. 1 of 2023. Please email us if you are interested in having a team for the 2023 season.
Do we have to be sponsored by an American Legion Post?
No, you can be sponsored by a post or a business/organization as long as it is approved by the softball committee. We would prefer a post to sponsor each team and plan on creating an "Adopt a Team" for posts looking to sponsor teams as well.
What uniform requirements will there be?
The American Legion softball logo will be required for the left sleeve or left chest of the uniform. The Patches tab on top on the page will bring you to the site to order the patches.
What is the cost? What is included in that cost?
The cost is $500. That covers state fees and insurance. It also locks you into an opportunity for postseason play.
Can we combine towns/schools to make a team?
Teams are created based on school enrollment. Each player is tied directly to their high school. If two or more neighboring schools need to combine enrollment to create a team, that is acceptable as long as the enrollment does not surpass 3,600 students. If a team is created by a cooperative like this, all players in those schools would be tied to that team.
Who schedules games? When do we play?
Teams work with one another to create their own schedule in each district.
Who is in charge of league play? Playoffs?
League play will be done locally. Playoffs will be overseen by Directors.
What will playoffs look like?
We will have 4 Sub-State tournaments and take the top two teams from each to the State Tournament Final. The Champion will be matched up against a Runner-Up in the opening round with Sub-State teams on opposite halves of the bracket.
