Youth Baseball

AL Post 552 sponsors the Cobras, a team based here in Pacific Beach. Want to see a game? View the 2024 District 22 schedule.

Here’s a list of all the local teams the Cobras are playing.

And here’s information on how you can help support the Cobras and other American Legion youth baseball teams.

American Legion Baseball has been around since 1925. Young people ages 13 to 19 compete in all 50 states, plus Canada. Here’s an interesting history of the program.

Boys State

AL Post 552 interviewed and selected three boys for Boys State this year: Charlie Hutchinson, Charlie Grebing, and Harold Gildehaus. Boys State was held in June, and Harold (pictured below) made an outstanding presentation of his experiences at our July meeting.
