American Legion Post 735, Hiawatha, Iowa

American Legion Baseball

American Legion Baseball is a national institution, having thrived through multiple wars, several national tragedies, and times of great prosperity as well as great despair.

The league still stands behind the traditional values upon which it was founded in 1925. American Legion Baseball has taught hundreds of thousands of young Americans the importance of sportsmanship, good health and active citizenship. The program is also a promoter of equality, making teammates out of young athletes regardless of their income levels or social standings. American Legion Baseball has been, and continues to be, a stepping stone to manhood for millions of young men who have gone on to serve their country or community, raise families and, is some cases, play the sport at the highest level. Read more on the history of American Legion Baseball.

American Legion baseball is played during the spring here in Iowa since Iowa is the only state in which high school baseball is played during the summer (which is the normal Legion timeframe).

Over the past few years, Post 735 has sponsored teams composed of players from existing high school teams. Schools involved in previous years have included Xavier, Kennedy and Washington. For 2021, The Post continues its sponsorship of the team from Washington High School, making 2021 the 6th straight year (the longest running sponsorship streak in the I-380 Corridor). If you are interested in attending a Post 735 Warriors game, the team's calendar is below, as is a map to Warrior Field at Washington High School (currently all Post 735 Warriors games are schedule to be played at home, at CR Washington). 2021 also marked a milestone with the Post 735 Warriors (pictured on left) earning the title of Area 4 Champions and an automatic berth to the 2021 Department (state) Tournament.
