Nationally American Legion Baseball canceled its support of all baseball activities across the country, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a season for Alaska baseball players. The Alliance for the Support of American Legion Baseball in Alaska announced it will have an unofficial season that mirrors a regular legion season this summer for players ages 13 to 19.

The details of the unofficial season are still being worked out, like a starting date, but the Alliance says they hope to have a regular season and playoff.

A coaches meeting will be held to discuss COVID-19 guidelines and answer any questions. The standards for coaches in the new Alliance league will the same as state standards for Legion coaches in years past.
