It's Official: Russell to Have Summer Baseball

Baseball-Glove PicEarlier this spring, it was announced there would be no Legion Baseball this summer in Kansas including Russell.

Kansas Legion Baseball officials did leave the door open, though, for teams to play an independent schedule if they were able to secure their own insurance and a schedule of games.

Russell was able to do both and will have a team this summer.

According to coach Alan Penka, the team will play as the Russell Broncos and has 13 doubleheaders scheduled and one tournament.

Russell opens its season on Friday, June 5 in Hays against TMP.
