Randolph County area high school baseball players interested in playing for the Moberly Senior American Legion Post 6 Sixers this summer season should attend an informational meeting held 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 5 at the American Legion Hall building located at 619 Concannon St.
Sixers head coach Rick Andrews announced there are several roster positions open. Due to some nearby communities not offering an American Legion ball team this season, the geographical area from Moberly to attract players to its team has expanded this year said Andrews.
In addition to residents of Randolph County, athletes living in Salisbury, Glasgow, Brunswick, Keytesville, Sturgeon, Harrisburg, Hallsville, Paris, Madison, Macon and LaPlata are eligible to play for the Moberly Post 6 Sixers this season.
Athletes who are age 15 and remain no older than 20 years old during this calendar are eligible to play.
Moberly Sixers will play about 35 games and will begin their season during the Memorial Day holiday weekend competing in a tournament at Hannibal come May 24-27.
Home games are played at the Howard Hils Athletic Complex.
Andrews also said Moberly will host one of the state’s Zone Tournaments in late July, which serves as one of 4 qualifiers for the state championships.
Efforts are being made to host a District tournament here as well.
The Moberly Sixers won the District 1 Tournament last summer to advance to Zone play. It was the program’s 18th district title in 23 years.
Post 6 of Moberly’s record was 22-15 during the 2012 summer season during Andrews first year as head coach.
Assistant coaches are Bryant Jones of Madison, and Tim Wetrich and Chris Fletcher of Moberly.
For more information Andrews can be reached at 660-651-6839 during the daytime, or evenings at 660-263-7264.
