About Legion / Connie Mack Baseball
Northern Valley Connie Mack and Legion Baseball is comprised of a few sending school territories, but is in no way limited to public school players. We welcome players who attend private, online, charter, etc. schools who live in our sending area. For Connie Mack, the team is made up of Northern Lehigh and Northwestern Lehigh territories and usually involves younger high school aged students....but there is room for strong players of the 8th grade as well. Legion Baseball usually includes high schoolers of the varsity skill level as well as 19 year old graduates and covers 3 territories...Northwestern, Northern Lehigh and Palmerton. Our coaches are independent of any particular school affiliation and do not coach their own children.
