Tri-City Continues to Contribute Heavily to the Advancement and Promotion of American Legion Baseball in Minnesota
In addition to being the first American Legion Post and baseball team in the State of Minnesota to establish a website, do you know all the other ways that Tri-City helps to strengthen the American Legion Baseball Program in Minnesota? First, volunteers within the Tri-City organization handle the administration and publication of the Statewide American Legion Poll (read more). Secondly, Tri-City provides space on its own website to host the Official Minnesota State Tournament website -- and Tri-City volunteers do all of the State Tournament site design and maintenance each year, in addition to helping at the State Tournament itself.. And, new in 2006, Tri-City volunteered to host a web page that outlines all game schedules and results for the Gopher Classic tournament. Many college coaches and major league scouts have commented on how useful the information is to them, as well as how often they visit the Tri-City Basebal site.

Because of its numerous contributions to American Legion Baseball -- on and off the field -- Tri-City was named Post of the Year by Minnesota American Legion Baseball in 2005. So, be proud of your association with Tri-City -- and help us continue to enhance our reputation as a leader in American Legion Baseball by representing our Post with dignity and integrity!
