Players that play on the American Legion Post 81 Junior Legion team will not be eligible to play Mickey Mantle baseball.
The article in Wednesday’s edition of The Recorder was incorrect in stating that players could play on both teams. The policy was put in place by the Legion team. Players eligible to play Babe Ruth will still be allowed to play both Junior Legion and Babe Ruth because the leagues are not viewed as “lateral.”
