Post 7 to hold ‘Veteran’s Recognition Night’ Wednesday during Area V Tournament

TENNERTON – The Buckhannon Post 7 American Legion baseball team will hold their “Veteran’s Recognition Night” Wednesday evening during game two of the best of three series with Elkins Post 29 in the Area V Tournament at William E. Phillips Memorial Field.

“We are asking our local veteran’s community to come to the game,” remarked Buckhannon Post 7 general manager Kevin Boring. “We will announce and recognize them for their service as well as asking them to join both teams on the field for the playing of the National Anthem.”

Elkins and Buckhannon will open play in the Area V Tournament on Tuesday in Elkins with a berth in the state tournament on the line.

“We are hoping to continue playing good baseball,” said Boring. “Over the last three or four games we have been more consistent and have been in every ballgame.  We need to eliminate our errors in the field and our walks when we are pitching. Timely hitting and smart base running are also needed.  If we play as clean a game as we can we will give ourselves a chance to advance. Yes it has been a while for Post 7 was in the state tournament, we are hoping to end that streak this year.”
