DuBois, PA – The Pennsylvania American Legion Baseball Championships are coming to DuBois this weekend!

The fun starts on Friday with seven people getting inducted in the American Legion Hall of Fame and an honor banquet with Neil Walker’s father accepting his award.

Afterward at 8:30, they’ll go to Showers Field for a free concert from The Ride and a celebration of the competing teams and of course for our veterans. You’re invited too!

The tournament is even more special this year because it’s the DuBois American Legion’s 100th anniversary!

Thank you to the George Montgomery American Legion Post 17, City of DuBois, and all the donors for their help making this possible!

The Showers Field website will be streaming all of the games live on their website.
