Casper Legion Baseball Team Begins Practice
One sure sign of summer is baseball and one sign that something that resembles normalcy may be on the horizon is baseball. With the COVID-19 pandemic, sporting events all over the place as been postponed or outright canceled. But Wyoming American Legion baseball is going to give it a try but there's a number of hurdles to clear. The first being the current social distancing restrictions. In order to have baseball, the number of people allowed to congregate would have to be increased from 10 to 50.
There's a long list of protocols to keep the playing environment as sanitary as possible and that's a new world in itself. The national Legion office has canceled their World Series and regional tournaments but the hopes are that Wyoming will crown a state champion. We chatted with new Casper Oiler manager Tanner Galey about finally getting out and practicing and what lies ahead.
