Nothing against American Legion Park but the Kershaw County American Legion baseball team hopes they have played their last game at the Camden ball yard until next summer. With a seat-squirming 7-6 win over visiting Murrells Inlet on Wednesday, Post 17 put itself a win away from a second consecutive appearance in the American Legion State Tournament in Sumter. The local carried a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series with Post 178 with game four slated to have been played Thursday at Socastee High School, where the 17ers dropped a 14-13 decision Tuesday night.
