to the West Hempfield Post 53 American Legion Baseball Website. We're glad
you stopped by to visit our site. Legion Baseball at West Hempfield
has become a rite
of Summer in our small community
of Hempfield Township, Pennsylvania. Lead by Coach Bob Stokes, many
great players and role models have emanated from Post 53's teams over the years.
Our web site is packed full of information, photos, rosters of past/present
teams and so much more. We have worked hard to develop a site that is
representative of our team and our commitment to developing players into young
men who represent their community well.
In 2005, our team won its first District Championship. The first in
Hempfield Township history. All
in 2005 will never forget the feeling that comes with being a champion.
As much as the "West Hempfield 12" have moved on, the commitment to winning continues.
In 2006, we were the South/East Division
Playoff Champions and in
2011 West Hempfield achieved a tremendous milestone in winning the
Region 7 Championship crown. This team achieved greatness by defeating
teams from 13 Counties across Western and Central Pennsylvania.
In time, more
championship teams will evolve. Our coach is an animated character who
promotes sportsmanship and integrity with all his players. His uncanny
ability to take average ballplayers and turn them into champions is both
exciting to watch and remarkable to say the least.
Again, we are glad you chose to visit our site and we welcome your
by signing our Guestbook. Long live Legion Baseball in West Hempfield.
