(July 26, 2013) – Post 34 Leesburg continued its Cinderella run at the American Legion baseball Region 16 tournament with a 12-3 win Thursday over Post 290 Stafford American on their home turf.
Leesburg, which had to win a play-in game just to make the 8-team tournament, faces Post 72 Warrenton today at 12:30 p.m. in the consolation semifinals at Stafford’s Legion Field and a win would pit them against Post 290 Stafford National at 5 p.m. in the consolation finals. Post 21 Winchester awaits the consolation champ in the finals Saturday at 12:30 p.m.
Leesburg has pushed across 23 runs in the last two days with a 11-0 shutout over Loudoun rival Post 2001 Ashburn on Wednesday. That loss ended Ashburn’s season.
