Yes, there is NASCAR news to get to, but legion baseball is first on the agenda.
Rutherford County Post 423 ended a the season in the first round of the legion playoffs this past week.
They lost after game four in a best of five series. In game one, Post 423 fell 10-3 on the road, then came back home and played maybe the best ball they had all season with a 5-3 victory. In game three, it was a cat and mouse type game, but Mint Hill prevailed 13-12 and the series ended the next night with a 13-9 loss. Post 423 (7-11), never really had a chance to gel this season after being forced to take a break by a new implemented rule of American Legion at the start of the campaign and inconsistent/young pitching took its toll as well.
