I always got a hoot w/r to watching the 15 yr old play vs the 18 y/o in American Legion.

When AL went to 19 y/o eligibility, it became a numbers challenge to those limited rosters, and thus the 15 y/o had to go else where to play summer ball.

Don't think for one minute that adding the 19 y/o improved American Legion talent in contrast to your thinking.

And I am remembering those very special 15 y/o. Those that went on to D1 colleges or directly to the pros. And after finishing their careers, are in their community supporting the youth leagues and raising families of their own.
