(Due to an early deadline for the July Fourth holiday, results from Kershaw County Post 17’s scheduled baseball games with Manning-Santee and Orangeburg last Thursday and Friday, respectively, would not be included in today’s print issue of the Chronicle-Independent.) The first round of the South Carolina American Legion state playoffs begin tonight across the state. Kershaw County Post 17 will be in the field for the best-of-five series which alternates between sites with the higher-seeded team playing at home in games one, three and, if needed, the fifth and deciding game. When today’s issue of the Chronicle-Independent went to press, the 17ers sat in second place in League AAA, which would have given them home field advantage in opening round play.
