In front of a crowd of more than 6,000, the Brooklawn, N.J., Post 72 American Legion Baseball team claimed what it lost during the 2012 American Legion World Series (ALWS): the championship title. It was the third ALWS title in the program’s history.
Last year, Brooklawn remained scoreless against New Orleans in the
championship game. But the 2012 runner-up defeated Petaluma, Calif., off
a 10-run mercy rule during the 2013 ALWS in Shelby, N.C.
