Welcome to Bloomington
Legion Post 550 Baseball
As we look forward to the 2022 Legion baseball season, the following is a list of tournaments we plan to attend or host next summer.
The 2021-2022 Post 550 Baseball meat raffles begin Saturday September 11th, 2021 and every Saturday (except Christmas and New Year's Day) through the end of March, 2022. The meat raffles are held at the Sportspage between 11:45AM and 3:00pm.
We do need volunteers to help with the raffles by walking around and selling the tickets and collecting the money. The link to the sign up genius is below. Each parent who volunteers for a shift will earn $25 per shift off their child’s 2022 summer legion baseball dues. Please take the opportunity to sign up for as many shifts as you would like.
Please contact Mark Scott if have any questions.
