Jackson Silver American Legion Post 68 of Locke’s Mills will again be a sponsor of American Legion Senior Baseball. The post has sponsored teams for several years in Legion Zone 2, which incorporates Western and Central Maine.
The Legion feels this is a great opportunity for young athletes to be afforded an opportunity to continue their baseball involvement between high school and college. This allows them an opportunity to fulfill their athletic skills, enhance good sportsmanship and enjoy social interplay. The 2016 team will again be coached by Bob Remington, who has done an exceptional job along with his coaching staff. This year’s recruitment of players (which is still in progress) are students from Gould Academy, Telstar, Dirigo and Mountain Valley Schools. Those interested in playing may contact Bob Remington at 890-9161 or Ryan Palmer at 357-6603.
The Legion is a 501 C (3) non-profit organization. Therefore, all of the expenses for the teams: equipment, uniforms, umpire fee’s, insurance, travel expense and incidental expenses have to be financed by fund raising and private donations. The 2016 annual operating budget is between $2,500 and $4,000.
The Post is reaching out to private institutions, parents, private citizens and any other organization which would give financial aid for this most worthwhile cause. The ultimate goal is to enhance each athlete’s confidence, self-esteem and athletic potential as a participant. Donations made be made directly to Jackson-Silver Post 68, P. O. Box 178, Locke Mills, ME 04255.
