The 8-team, double elimination American Legion Maine State Championship Tournament is coming back to Bangor this summer and the Winkin Complex at Husson University is the host site.

Zone 1 Legion commissioner Dave Paul says the host site was supposed to be from Zone 4 in southern Maine but when the site could not be locked down state officials turn to the Bangor site. The 2015 state tourney was held at the Winkin Complex.There are four zones in the state for Legion baseball and the tourney rotates each year.

The tourney will run from July 26th through July 30th with 14 games, and possibly 15 games to determine the state winner.

NOTE: Zone 1 Senior Legion teams for 2017 include Bangor, Brewer, Motor City, Acadians, Post 51 (Messalonskee), Hampden, Skowhegan...There are seven Junior Legion teams in the zone.
