Randolph County won the SE Regional today over Troy, AL. The American Legion World Series starts this week in Shelby. Randolph County will open against Midland, MI.

American Legion ball is declining in popularity. Georgia had no teams this year. Showcase ball, equivalent to AAU basketball, is on the rise. The best HS team in Randolph County this year was Randleman. Our legion team has 0 players from RHS. Two underclass pitchers from RHS have already committed to NC State. Neither was interested in playing American Legion (even with Randolph County hosting the SE Regional- meaning we had a bye into the national semifinal tournament).

Local youth baseball is also on the decline. 45 years ago Asheboro had three leagues for 12 and under, with 6 teams each. Asheboro has grown since then and we now have 0 teams. Kids who want to play have to sign up (and pay) for travel ball.

What a shame! Looks like there is no longer any place for kids who just want to play baseball but aren't looking to win pro contracts, college scholarships, or parental glory.
