2011 Viroqua Legion Baseball Schedule

The Legion team opens with a rare Saturday evening home doubleheader on June 4 at 5:00 pm against West Salem.

Most of the scheduled matchups are doubleheaders during the week, including the traditional Wed. night 6 pm home doubleheader every week of the regular season, which wraps up on Sunday July 17.

There are about 48 regular season games scheduled (hard to tell exactly how many are scheduled in some of the tournaments). This is down from recent years because of the schedule ending a week earlier -- thanks to the National tournament moving a week earlier. It also doesn't mean 48 games will actually get played, as usually a few get rained out and not made up each year.

Regionals start July Wednesday July 20 and run thru Sunday July 24. The games will be around the Viroqua area. We'll get an update out on that as we get closer to summer.

The Wisconsin Class A Legion Baseball State Tournament is in Richland Center this year, from Wednesday July 27 thru Sunday July 31.

And once again, Viroqua gets the honor of hosting the Division 2 Central Plains National Tournament, from Thurs. Aug. 4 thru Sun. Aug. 7. We'll get more updates on this too as we get closer to summer. Lots of preparation is already underway.
