    As I said 2 weeks ago, we haven’t even had a meeting yet. Got an email yesterday that it was going to be next Sunday. Not sure it will happen now with everything else that is going on.

    American Legion Baseball is supported by MLB, so they will use MLB rules with some exceptions. The exceptions will probably be games of seven innings instead of nine, pitch count limitations, etc.

    9 innings ship has sailed, you can thank the higher ups at Legion and ESPN for that.

    Also, bet there wasn’t many coaches and even less players that was disappointed in going to 7 innings.

    They will adopt the HS pitching rules, that’s what they did last year.
