The National American Legion Headquarters in Indianapolis, In has awarded Napoleon Post 300 as the HOST for the 2017 and 2018 National Great Lakes Regional Tournament! Napoleon will be the first team in Ohio to host this tournament since 2008. Previous Posts in Ohio to host this premier tournament are:
2001: Lancaster (Napoleon won and advanced to the World Series in Yakima, WA)
Games will be played at Mercy Field in Holland, Ohio. National Headquarters have set certain parameters when it comes to field specifications. Lights, field dimensions, sizeable press box area, ample permanent seating and hotels are just a few of the requirements that need to be met. Mercy Field meets all of the specifications and it also is an all turf field which was a huge determining factor in getting the bid.
"On behalf of Post 300, we are extremely excited about having the opportunity to showcase American Legion baseball in Northwest Ohio. We will obviously want this to be a first class experience for all of the teams who will be participating," states Randy Bachman, General Manager of the Napoleon River Bandits. The winner of this tournament will advance to the American Legion World Series in Shelby, NC
