American Legion Baseball

The American Legion Baseball League started in 1925 with the Rayson-Miller team joining the league in District 7 in 1973. The team is comprised of young men from 13 to 19 years of age recruited from Pittsford Mendon HS, Pittsford Sutherland HS, McQuaid Jesuit HS, Aquinas Institute, Batavia Notre Dame HS, Honeoye Falls-Lima HS and Gananda’s Ruben A Cirillo High School. Tom Sapienza has been the team manager and coach since its inception. The Rayson-Miller Post Baseball team looks for commitment in its players. Rayson-Miller Post 899 understands that faith, parents, work, and school are priorities; however, the candidates must also understand that dependability and commitment to the team are also very important aspects for making the Rayson-Miller roster and also for making RM Baseball special.

The Rayson-Miller baseball team is doing very well this year. Go to Monroe County American Legion Baseball for current standings and game locations. We also encourage you to "come out to the old ball game" and support these young men and enjoy the game!

Uniform Fundraiser

2018 Rayson-Miller Post 899 decided to embark on a raising funds to purchase the team new uniforms. The team had uniforms purchased in 1996, which had long outlived their serviceability with much mending, patching, and zipper replacements. We felt new uniforms a necessity. Think of it: how many of us are still wearing clothes from 22 years ago? Visit our Uniform Fundraiser page to learn all about the raffle of a beautiful 100th Year Anniversary custom built telecaster electric guitar that YOU could win on July 4th, 2018! And of course, about our fantastic sponsors.

Games are FREE!!! Come on out and cheer on our Rayson-Miller Baseball Team and see their new uniforms!

Impact of American Legion Baseball

The American Legion Baseball league has had and continues to have positive impacts within Major League Baseball such as turning out many MLB players, managers, and commissioners, and has more than sixty program graduates in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Legion Baseball also has a reputation for serving the young people who play in the league. In college scholarships, the league annually awards a minimum of $25,000; $500 for a player selected from each state based upon leadership, character, scholastic achievement, and financial need. Some individual states may also award even more. Truly a character building youth program of the American Legion.

And did you know that American Legion Baseball is the oldest organized baseball program in our country. For detailed information visit American Legion Baseball.
