American Legion Opens Season

American Legion Wellington Post 390 kicked off its baseball season Saturday, May 18 at Village Park in Wellington against Jupiter Post 271.

Opening-day activities included the first pitch being thrown by former Wellington Mayor Tom Wenham and the second pitch being thrown by Post 390 Commander Mike Pancia.

The Post 390 team defeated a determined Jupiter Post 271 team by a score of 5-1 behind the strong pitching of Jake Silver and Kolten Palmer. Timely hitting by Eric Scott and Cam Lauer was instrumental in the victory.

“We were very excited to get the season started,” manager Tony Viscusi said. “The boys worked really hard preparing for this, and it’s nice to see them get that first victory under their belt.”

The next home games for Wellington Post 390 are scheduled for Monday, June 3 and Thursday, June 6 against Jupiter Post 271, and Friday, June 7 against Post 367.
