Service Post 28 earned the No. 2 seed for the American Legion state baseball tournament, but Juneau Post 25 looked like the best team in Alaska as play began Friday in the eight-team tourney on at Anchorage’s Mulcahy Stadium.
“Oh my goodness it was a marathon,” Juneau manager Andy Macaulay said. “And the weather was absolutely awful. Our boys are used to playing in it, but it didn’t make it any better. It never let up, it rained the whole game, three and a half hours. Today was a Southeast day, and our boys really felt at home with the weather.”
