The Hartland American Legion Baseball Program Post 294 was founded in 2015. Hartland Legion Baseball fielded only one 16u team the first year. In 2016 we expanded and had two teams 16u and 19u. 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. The roster targets 15 players on each team.
Home fields include Arrowhead High School and Nixon Park. 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 allowing players to play at any team level.
Legion baseball provides an excellent opportunity for to play a summer season after spring ball is over. With the absence of spring baseball this year, we are doing everything we can to give our players the opportunity to still play baseball in 2020. More information will be provided as guidance is handed down from the league we participate in, as well as receiving the go ahead from Governor Evers.
