Legion Team H.S. Eligibility and Recruiting

PARENTS, PLAYERS, COACHES AND MANAGERS

Please keep in mind, that this page shows high school eligibility only. It does not take into account that player who does not have a School/Post hosting a team in his town. That player has the option to play for a team closest to his school or closest to his home address. (Refer to Legion Rule Book – 4 Option C.)

Parents, players or coaches shall use Google Maps for determining distances from a players home or school to a team they feel they are eligible to play for. You enter the name and address of your high school or the address of your legal residence as of March 31st of the playing season and get the distance to the high school you are questioning. Make sure that you choose the shortest distance when determining your mileage distances.

PLAYER RECRUITING PLAN “B” Rule 4

Maine utilizes the Plan “B” base school recruiting which allows both senior and junior legion baseball teams to select players who attend nearby high schools. High schools are combined to form a recruiting area. A player, whose parent’s domicile is nearest a base school, is eligible to try-out and play for the team if the player meets all other eligibility requirements and the combined enrollment of the recruiting area (combination of schools) does not exceed 5,000 students in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades. Please refer the National Legion Baseball Rulebook for the specifics of this rule.

This page shows which schools are legal recruiting schools for all of the participating legion baseball programs in Maine for both the senior and junior programs.
