2019 American Legion Baseball Season

Postby CSDsportsfan1 » May 29th, 2019, 9:11 am

Now that the high school baseball season is over, it is time to talk about the Boys of Summer! Who are going to be the teams to beat this year in Class A? I will start with my Top 5:

1) Rapid City Post 22
2) Mitchell
3) Brandon Valley
4) Renner
5) Sioux Falls East

Others to watch include Sioux Falls West, Pierre, Brookings and Yankton.

12 of South Dakota's Class A Legion baseball teams competed in the Gopher Classic over the weekend, and eight of the teams came away with winning records in pool play. Two teams, Mitchell and Watertown, won their pools and qualified for the round of 16 starting on Monday.

So where does that leave us as teams start post season play this coming weekend? Perennial powerhouse Rapid City Post 22 continues to be the favorite to win the state tourney as they went 4-1 in Minneapolis and lost the pool tiebreaker to Team Manitoba.

Mitchell continues to be on a late-season roll and has a veteran lineup that could give 22 a run. They are also the host team for the state tourney which could help them, but will a long layoff before the state tourney hurt their momentum?

The next tier of quality teams includes:
Sioux Falls West
Watertown
Brandon Valley
Sioux Falls East

The best of the rest includes:
Brookings
Renner
Harrisburg
Yankton
Pierre
RC Post 320
Sturgis

Probably don't have a shot:
Aberdeen
Huron
