Post 88 Philosophy

The Philosphy of American Legion Post 88 Baseball program is, for all practical purpose, a philosophy for everyday lives of its athletes.  God, family, and being a great citizen are always the primary concern of this program and the athletes' needs in respect to these shall always come first.  But after those concerns, hard work, discipline, and stress on the fundamentals will be the primary emphasis of the program.  Through the game of baseball the players should recognize the value of these points of emphasis in their lives and apply them to all situations.  Through the playing of the game, the athletes will also recognize the value of sportsmanship.  Playing the game wtih an attitude that exhibits class, even in defeat, shoes maturity and character.  It will always be present in the athletes that participate in Post 88 Baseball!

I will:

Keep the rules. Keep faith with my teammates.

Keep my temper. Keep myself fit. Keep a stout heart in defeat.

Keep my pride under in victory.

Keep a sound soul. A clean mind.

And a healthy body."
