1920's

In July of 1925, the South Dakota Department of The American Legion ,agreed and passed a resolution urging the Legion to create an organized summer baseball league that started each June. The National Commander backed the resolution, which passed that fall at the Legion's national convention in Omaha.


"RESOLVED: That The American Legion ... inaugurate and conduct baseball leagues and tournaments for local championships, and that local champions determined by the competitions be given opportunity to compete in departmental, sectional and regional tournaments, and that a junior world series championship baseball series be conducted at each national convention ... "

Fremont's first Legion baseball teams were in the late 1920's. In the 1931 Myron Bodell made a motion at an American Legion meeting to put up $100 for equipment for a team. This is today's Post 20 team.
