The summer season has started up for the Mint Hill Legion Baseball teams. The season will continue through the month of June with playoffs beginning on July 1. This year Mint Hill will host the Junior Legion Area 4 semi-finals on July 5, 6 and 7 and the finals on July 11, 12, and 13 at Independence High School.

“Like I told them today, ‘Right now we’re the ingredients and we’ve got to blend you into a team,’” said Coach Kelly Moore. He said the team this year is comprised of younger players than last year’s team, which had 11 members go on to play college baseball. “That just makes our jobs as coaches more fun,” he said. “We’ve got big shoes to fill from last year.” 

The team pulls from six local high schools- Independence, Covenant Day, Charlotte Christian, Hickory Grove Christian, Rocky River and Butler. The games last a complete nine innings. “Come on out. We would love to have more people,” said Moore. “The more people you have yelling, the better it is- for you and not at you, of course.”
