The Speakers Baseball Team from Danville American Legion Post 210 dropped its first game of the American Legion World Series today (Thursday, August 15, 2019). Destrehan, Louisiana beat Danville 12 to 1 in the opening game of the tournament in Shelby, North Carolina.
Since it is a pool play tournament, Danville will play again Friday at 3:00 p.m. against Albuquerque, New Mexico. The team has Saturday off and will then wrap up its action against Festus, Missouri at noon on Sunday.
