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.

2014 Registration Information
A Letter from Department Chairman Gary Stone:
Teams were able to begin registering and paying fees/insurance effective January 1. Some have attempted to do so, and a couple of issues have come up. I have rejected some applications because background checks were not completed on the individuals listed on the application. So, here is the process. Please share.
Any player who participates in an All Star game, Showcase, or any other baseball program other than his Legion team MUST have a completed, approved Dual Participation form on file. Failure to do so will result in the player's suspension.
