about 20 years since American Legion
baseball was played in Kodiak, but this year high school Coach Rick Langfitt
has put together a team to compete with the dozen other teams in the division.
-- (Baseball 1 18 sec "The
competition will be ... and two teams in Fairbanks.")
like the boys of summer in the Minor Leagues, the Post 17 Bears will be
spending a lot of time on the road, leaving on the ferry tonight (Wednesday) for
a two-week road-trip.
-- (Baseball 2 51 sec "We
play our first game ... we're really going to enjoy it.")
for Kodiak baseball fans, Langfitt said there will not be any home games this
-- (Baseball 29 sec "We're
hoping that ... drive back home.")
The Post 17
Kodiak Bears will play in the American Legion's
A-Division, which is open to players 17 and under. There is a Double-A division
for players up to 19-years-old, but Langfitt decided it would be too difficult
to recruit enough former students back for the summer to play Double-A ball.
