Shirley Holloway Post 131 Fields a Legion Baseball Team

Shirley-Holloway Post 131 - Columbiana, AL

Only 1 year after Post 131 reformed, the Commander was approached by Jay Gibson who had played Legion Baseball in Sylacauga, AL for many years. Jay wanted to start a Legion Baseball team.

After some discussion, Post 131 voted to adopt a team. Now the team is 16 and 9 and is looking forward to heading to Legion World Series.

Many of the players have been "scouted" and some have even received scholarships due to the post simply saying "yes, we will sponsor a team"
