Alton Post 126 will try and play some baseball after all this summer.  The state of Illinois has canceled its legion baseball for 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

 

But Alton now plans on playing some junior and senior legion games across the river in Missouri coming up in the month of June.  They are waiting for the "OK" to play some home games in July at Gordon Moore Park. 

 

Alton plans on playing in what's being called the "COVID" baseball league in Missouri.  They are scheduled to open the season this weekend -- they have a senior legion baseball doubleheader in Washington (MO) on Saturday. 

Alton vs. Washington - 11 am

Alton vs. Hannibal (MO) - 1 pm. 

 

Alton will also face Washington (MO) and Hannibal (MO) in a junior legion doubleheader on Sunday at 1 pm.
