AGES: American Legion Baseball is a nationwide, 19u amateur baseball league. You may not turn 19 before January 1 of last year. Roster are typically comprised of high-level high school varsity/upperclassmen players, and rising college sophomore players.
AREA: Post 39 is able to choose players from Pitt, Craven, Martin, Edgecombe, Beaufort, and other surrounding counties. If you have a question if you are eligible to tryout for our team, please contact us.
ROSTER SIZE: We may take as many players as desired early in the season. Per American Legion rules, once we play our first "conference" game, we will lock into our FINAL 18-man roster for the remainder of the summer.
TRAVEL BALL: Per American Legion rules, a player is not allowed to "dual participate" once the playoffs begin (July 1). The only showcase/event that is accepted is annual NC State Games tournament. Typically, the Post 39 roster will not be comprised of dual-participants.
