Senior Legion Baseball

Post 218 didn't get a chance to play for the championship of the Post 218 Wood Bat Tournament Sunday evening. Washington had defeated Manchester 11-1 in six innings earlier in the day and Jefferson City Post 5 had finished off an 8-6 come from behind win over Jackson, but rain and lightening moved in shortly after the second semifinal dashing any hopes of a title game match up between two of the best senior legion teams in the state. Washington currently stands at 17-3 while Post 5 is undefeated at 20-0.

Washington is back in action Tuesday night with a 9th District game at Warrenton. Game time is 6:00 at Warrenton High School. It will be broadcast live on KLPW-AM 1220.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
