The Hartland American Legion Baseball Program Post 294 is currently in its 4th year of operation. Founded in 2015, Hartland Legion Baseball fielded only one 16u team the first year. In 2016 we expanded and had 16u and 19u teams. Our 2016 16u Team finished 2nd at the American Legion State Tournament in Baraboo. In 2017 we expanded to 3 teams 16u, 17u and 19u. Our roster target is 15 players on each team. Hartland Legion Baseball is part of LCYBS and is sponsored in part by the Flanagan-Dorn American Legion Post 294 in Hartland. Our home fields Arrowhead High School and Nixon Park, the Hartland Legion Post Veterans operate the scoreboard and concession stand at all our Nixon Park home games. All Hartland Legion Baseball Teams use the same on field systems, with the goal of using the same systems as the high school. The Hartland Legion program provides players with advanced skills the opportunity to play up with the ultimate goal of the best players playing on the 19u team during playoffs. Hartland Legion Teams play around 20 to 25 games each summer. The Legion Baseball season starts at the conclusion of the WIAA High School Spring Baseball Season. Legion Regional play offs and State Tournaments start mid-July and conclude at the end of July. The 19u team has the potential to play into August by winning the State Tournament, the Great Lakes Regional and finally the World Series.
