BREAKING....GM Chad Niese has named Jordan Rode to be the new Head Coach of The Fighting 63rd.


Post 63 extends gratitude to those making memorial contributions to Ottawa Legion Baseball in memory of Robert Warren Sr, and Andy Brickner.

The Fighting 63rd also mourns the passing of long-time supporter and alumni Karl Kleman. Kleman was a member of our 1948 team (picture), which won the Putnam County championship.

A New Baseball Committee has been formed to assure the future of Ottawa Legion Baseball.
