Legion Team Recall Slow Start, Hot Finish In 2002 (Part 2)

July 24, 2012

By the time the Bryan Packers played Tuscaloosa’s Hillcrest on June 11, the season was almost two weeks old.
The Packers took a pair of games, winning 9-7 and 7-5. It was their first wins on the season.
“Some couldn’t come at the beginning,” Packers coach Frank Portera said. “They came on a little later in the year. You’ve got graduation stuff, you’ve got senior trips, you’ve all this stuff. There’s a couple of weeks in there before you can get everybody together where so much is going on that we didn’t get together until a week or two until after the season had started.”

That spring, someone approached Frank Portera about starting an American Legion baseball program in West Point.

Charity Tournament This Weekend

July 13, 2012

It started as a suggestion.
“We put up a suggestion box months ago,” West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley. “It’s for officers who have ideas or suggestions about how we could run the department better or how we could better contact the community.”
Detective Sgt. Albert Lee suggested a charity softball tournament.
“We have all kinds of things for kids,” Lee said. “But I thought it would be good to go forward with all the departments in the city. It’s a healthy thing, a good way to get exercise for city employees.”
