Cheyenne Post Six Will Not Play in ‘AA’ Legion State Tournament
The Wyoming Class ‘AA’ American Legion Baseball State Tournament field has been reduced to seven teams, as of Monday.
Reports from the Capital City say that Cheyenne Post Six will skip the Class ‘AA’ Wyoming State Tournament and will instead attend the Connie Mack World Series in Farmington, NM during the same time frame.
That decision came after Post Six won the CABA Wood Bat World Series Northwest Regional qualifier they hosted last week in Cheyenne. Post Six went 5-1 in pool play and defeated the Rocky Mountain Lobos from Fort Collins, CO and EnFuego Baseball Academy from Seattle, WA in the semifinals and championship Sunday to win the tournament.
WyoSports writer Jeremiah Johnke released the news Monday from Cheyenne manager Ty Lain.
WyoPreps reached out to Wyoming American Legion Baseball Commissioner Cody Beers for comment on how this impacts the state tournament bracket. Beers told WyoPreps that he would have something Wednesday.
This is a change from Lain told WyoPreps' David Settle in an interview Tuesday, July 9 in Cheyenne. Lain has explained, that at the time of the video, he didn't expect to win the CABA tournament, when he commented about going to the state tournament, instead of the Connie Mack World Series.
