2019 American Legion Post 171 Baseball Awards Banquet

On Sunday, December 15th, the Damascus American Legion Post 171 Baseball Program held its annual baseball banquet

to recognize and to thank those who were instrumental to the success of the 2019 program: boosters, coaches, players, volunteers, and families.

 

Our guest speaker for the evening was Coach Kevin Molesworth, a former Damascus High School and Post 171 baseball player, who will be spearheading our nascent Sandlot program (15U) in the 2020 summer season. We look forward to an update from Coach Molesworth at next year's banquet, and wish him and his staff much success for the upcoming season.
