: : Game set for Sunday in Miller Park

(Published Aug. 16, 2007, 4:38 p.m.)

Taylor Dowden of the Genoa City Post 183 Amercian Legion baseball team will join Bryce Kadlec of the Walworth Nationals at the annual all-star game Sunday at Miller Park.

The Wisconsin American Legion Baseball All-Star Game will begin immediately following the Milwaukee Brewers-Cincinnati Reds game this afternoon. This will be the 36th consecutive year that the game is played in the Brewers home.

The All-Star players were selected from Legion Baseball teams across the state of Wisconsin and were divided into a North and a South Team.

A complete list of this year's players and their home teams are below. One of the players on the North Team, Emery Hull of Chippewa Falls, has been selected to receive a $1000 college scholarship from The American Legion.

Wisconsin American Legion Baseball began in 1926, with the aim of providing recreation for teen-aged players in Wisconsin. The goal of the program is to build players strength, coordination and over-all physical fitness, as well as to aid in the development of good sportsmanship and citizenship, combating juvenile delinquency.

The Wisconsin American Legion is the state's largest Veterans Service Organization with over 70,000 members.
