Medicine Hat American Legion Baseball offers a competitive baseball program for players from Medicine Hat and surrounding area. Teams/leagues are tiered and compete in the Montana/Alberta Division. The zone that Medicine Hat can draw players from includes surrounding communities of Oyen, Kindersley, Richmound, Maple Creek, Foremost, Bow Island to name a few of the centres. More specific boundary information is available for any that may not be certain if within the area.
The age limit is a player cannot turn 20 during the season calendar year. Basically a 15 to 19-year-old program with some consideration for younger feeder programs. The Medicine Hat program does not recruit players that are still young enough to participate at the Medicine Hat AAA level of Junior Little League if within the MHLL boundary but does recruit or offer tryouts to players older than the AAA Junior LL level. There are often changes in age cutoffs of LL etc. so any changes or exceptions would be discussed with Medicine Hat Little League.
In September the Monarchs/Knights American Legion program is running a prospects camp for all players eligible to return to the program (born 2001 or later) and for future players from feeder programs that would be interested in trying out in 2021 & 2022.
This includes all Intermediate/Junior LL age players from this current year of 2019. For some, you would remain in AAA Junior for 2020 but gain experience for future teams.
Coaches will be current or past American Legion Coaches and players and could vary from date to date. The camp is at Jeffries Park and registration info is below, along with dates.
In addition, the Monarchs/Knights program offers twice a week of indoor training sessions from January 26 to March 22. Registered American Legion players and players from Junior and Intermediate LL age feeder program are invited. All indoor sessions are in the Fieldhouse at the Stampede grounds with current and past coaches & players leading the instruction.
Below is attached information regarding dates, costs and registration. Space is limited so register soon.
