Legion helps Little League
Dear Editor,

As a longtime manager and coach within the Homer Little League Baseball Program, I would like to thank the American Legion for its support of American Legion Baseball. I recently traveled with the Homer American Legion team to Arizona for a Legion sponsored baseball clinic. The level of instruction was top notch, and the players as well as the coaches soaked it all in. The American Legion's support allowed me to learn the cutting edge techniques for hitting, pitching, fielding and throwing. I am looking forward to sharing what I have learned with the other Little League coaches and managers, and building a stronger program with more confident players. Because of the Legion's support, we are able to bring a higher level of instruction to all of the children in the entire Little League.
