Post 2 Baseball Family,
I wanted to provide an update on the upcoming 2020 season. In the wake of the very unfortunate decision by the DEC committee of the ND State American Legion to cancel the season we, with ALL of the other AA and A baseball programs, have been in discussion with Babe Ruth baseball to create a season under their umbrella for this year. We will continue to work with the state DEC executive committee regarding what will need to happen to bring North Dakota baseball back under the American Legion umbrella in 2021. Post 2 Baseball club firmly believes that American Legion Baseball is the best program for the future of ND Baseball. The principles and values that make up our culture and define our identity are intertwined with the original mission of the America Legion. We are working with our local Legionnaires and the rest of the baseball clubs in the state to raise the issues to the state DEC board. I am hopeful that a solution can be worked out to implement the needed changes that will allow us to bring baseball back under the American Legion umbrella in 2021.
Focusing on the 2020 season, we have been working very hard to find a way to safely provide a baseball season for our young men. We are now ready to implement and begin the process to prepare for our season openers. I am happy to announce that tryouts will begin the week of May 18th. Tryouts will be structured in a way to limit group sizes and ensure proper social distancing. More information will be coming to you from the coaches as we approach the tryout dates. It is critical for liability purposes that you register prior to the tryout dates. If you haven’t done so yet please register online at Post2baseball.com.
I look forward to seeing you all at Jack Williams Stadium and am so anxious to see the first pitch. Let’s PLAY BALL!

UPDATE ON 2020 Season
4/7/20 FROM THE AMERICAN LEGION BASEBALL RELEASE: With the unpredictability of the current worldwide COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the manner in which the virus spreads, its duration and the resulting public health regulations and restrictions across the nation, The American Legion is facing an improbable situation. The Americanism Commission, in consultation with National Commander James William “Bill” Oxford, announces cancellation of all 2020 American Legion Baseball national tournaments, inclusive of all eight 2020 Regional Tournaments and the 2020 American Legion World Series. Questions regarding regular season play within your department should be directed to your department baseball committee chairman. The awarding of American Legion Baseball scholarships for 2020 have also been completely suspended.
4/4/20 FROM THE ND LEGION RELEASE: The DEC expressed that abiding by state guidance from Gov. Doug Burgum should take precedence over any decisions by National Legion Baseball since this is a state program. That being said, the decision to cancel Legion Baseball will be revisited during the next DEC meeting on April 20 if the pandemic situation has changed for the better by that time.
4/3/20 Statement from Fargo Post 2 Chairman Corey Thompson:
Post 2 Players, Parents and Supporters,
As many of you have seen the shocking news that the ND Legionnaires executives, at the state level, have decided to cancel the ND Legion baseball season. It is the opinion of Fargo Post 2 baseball club that it is far too soon for a decision of that magnitude. As a result, we are actively working to create a schedule for our young men to play baseball as soon as it is safe to do so. We are working with the other clubs in the state to devise a plan. Obviously the Covid-19 virus will dictate the time line. But once it has run its course we are committed to deliver to our players the opportunity to play the sport that they so love. That is our commitment to them. We will continue to post updates as we learn more and as things become clear. Until then stay home, stay safe and please keep everyone impacted by this virus in your prayers, including Jim and Sandi Pettersen.
