American Legion Baseball has been around for 87 year. Medford has fielded a team for most of those years. American Legion Baseball was originally sponsored all over the nation by Ford Dealerships. Medford’s team was sponsored by Winetrout Ford. There are over 5000 Legion teams playing baseball. The season is culminated by a World Series that pits 8 regional champions in a tournament to name the National Champion. The Mustangs have reached that final goal on four occasions and finished the National Runner-Up twice.
American Legion is more than just baseball…It is an organization of Veterans helping Veterans. It has a strong agenda supporting America’s youth. It sponsors Oratorical contests, Boys and Girls State and is always front and center of Veteran’s needs. The Legion Post in Medford gives thousands of hours of volunteer service at the VA Dom. It also sponsors “Stand Down” every September and helps homeless Vets.
