BLAKE OUTLAW RETURNS to the Post 17 fold after having played at USC-Lancaster this past season.
Gone are games which count with League III rivals Sumter, Hartsville, Cheraw and Manning-Santee. In fact, that circuit is now in Kershaw County’s rear-view mirror.In a season of radical change, the James Leroy Belk Post 17 American Legion baseball team has undergone a dramatic facelift over the past two weeks, alone.When the locals gathered for tryouts under first-year head coach Craig Smith, the 17ers were still a member of League III. But when the Midlands-based League IV came up light after Irmo decided to pack things up, it left that group with just three teams. The powers-that-be in the state American Legion circles asked Camden and Dalzell-Shaw if they would mind switching leagues from III to IV to balance things out, which they both did.
