Baseball Tournament Moving to Saugerties in 2020
The New York State American Legion Baseball Senior Tournament is moving to Saugerties for the next three seasons.
The Department Baseball Committee said the move from Utica’s Murnane Field was due to a housing issue caused by a conflict with Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Meanwhile, the 2020 Department Junior Tournament will remain in Utica.
Utica has served as the “home” of the Senior Tournament, hosting 16 out of the last 18 years. Utica Post 229 hosted seven times during the 2000s and Adrean Post 625 hosted the past nine years.
Saugerties has been awarded the Tournament for the 2020, 2021, and 2022 seasons. It will be held at Cantine Veterans Memorial Complex (also known as Cantine Field).
The Host Committee will be led by Jerry Malgieri and Rich Koegel.
Teams will report to Saugerties on July 24 and begin play on July 25.
