Post 285 Season Ends at Moline
UPDATED 1:07pm 7/22/10 The post 285 Galesburg American Legion baseball team saw it's season end Thursday with a 7-2 loss to Rock Island at the Division 3 Tournament in Moline.

Galesburg suffered back-to-back losses to become the first team knocked out ot the field, following an exciting run that saw them take the District 15 tournament title last week.

Head Coach Steve Cheeseman's troops finish the summer with a 29-6 record.

Steve made it a point to note that another successful season came about due in part to the feeder youth programs we've heard a lot about lately.

"Galesburg has a tremendous baseball program," Cheeseman said, "from these young kids in Cal Ripken to Babe Ruth, our High School, our Legion. It's a baseball community, and it's been forever...at the top level."

Cheeseman added that "American Legion baseball is a partnership among many people who donate their time and dollars to make Post 285 baseball what it is."
