Legion Teams Combine to Sweep Otis-Bison

American LegionGame 1: Russell 14, Otis-Bison 4, 4 innings

Game 2: Russell 13, Otis-Bison 3, 6 innings

Due to a shortage of players and a canceled doubleheader involving the Senior squad, the Russell Junior and Senior American Legion teams formed a single squad for their Saturday doubleheader at Otis-Bison.

The combined team had a very successful evening by sweeping their Otis-Bison counterparts 14-4 in four innings in the first game and taking the nightcap 13-3 in six innings.  Both games came to a halt as a result of the 10-run rule.

The Senior American Legion team will play its home opener on Wednesday at 6 p.m. against Hoisington at Shaffer Field while the Junior squad will next be in action Friday through Sunday June 21-23 at the Dodge City Single-A Tournament.
