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 is now open for the 2023 year. Follow the link above or on the registration tab..
Do we have to be sponsored by an American Legion Post?
We would prefer a post to sponsor each team and plan and have the "Adopt a Team" for posts looking to sponsor teams as well. You can be sponsored by a post or a business/organization as long as it is approved by the softball committee.
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 in each Legion district.
What will playoffs look like?
We will have Sub-State tournaments and take the top team from each to the State Tournament Final. This is subject to change based on number of teams registered throughout the state.
