Legion Baseball Winter Meeting Results Dec. 2012

Casper Oilers vs. Cheyenne Post 6 - Legion Baseball State Championship 2012
Kevin Koile –

The legion baseball scene in Wyoming, is changing about as much as college teams are changing conferences.

Recently at the Legion Baseball Winter Meeting held in Casper, several teams announced their intention to move up to the ‘AA’ to ensure that there will be an 8 team tournament.

Moving up will be Jackson Giants, Sheridan Troopers, Wheatland Lobos and the Cheyenne Hawks, to join the current 4 teams; Gillette Roughriders, Cheyenne Post 6, Casper Oilers, and Rock Springs Mustangs.

The teams will split into 2 divisions and each team will play one 9-inning game home and away vs. the other 3 teams in their division. Group 1 is Cheyenne Post 6, Casper Oilers, Sheridan Troopers, and Gillette Roughriders. Group 2 is Wheatland Lobos, Cheyenne Hawks, Rock Springs Mustangs and Jackson Giants.

There is no need for a district tournament. The 2013 ‘AA’ state tournament will be held the first weekend in August at Cheyenne. A rotation was set up for future ‘AA’ state tournaments to be held at Gillette (2014), Rock Springs (2015), Jackson (2016), Sheridan (2017) and Casper (2018).

That leaves the remaining 12 teams in the ‘A’ league. Teams will be in 4 groups of 3, and teams will play 1 9-inning game vs. the other 2 teams in their division. The Northeast is Douglas, Gillette Rustlers and Casper Drillers. The Southeast is Torrington, Laramie and Rawlins. The Northwest is Cody, Powell, Lovell and the Southwest is Riverton, Green River and Evanston. District tournaments will be held July 25-28 at Douglas (north) and Laramie (south). The State ‘A’ Tournament will be held in Gillette, the following weekend.

Sheridan will host the ‘B’ State Tournament.
