It has been a great season for the American Legion Teams in Mint Hill. The Junior team was just one win away from going to the state tournament in Cary until Belmont beat them 10-4 Saturday.

For 40 years, the Mint Hill Team was known as “Newell” because of their association with the Newell VFW. This year, they were officially called “Mint Hill” because of their sponsorship by Mint Hill VFW Post 4059. Here are some pictures from Saturday’s game. Photos are by Tim Long.
