Postive COVID tests end local legion baseball seasons

Positive coronavirus tests in north and north central Idaho have forced American Legion officials to end the baseball seasons for several area legion teams.

The chairman of Idaho American Legion baseball, Abe Abrahamson, says positive cases in the region resulted in the cancellation of summer baseball, although Area C (eastern Idaho) can still play. It has not been disclosed what teams may have had players test positive.

The affected teams include Moscow, Orofino and Camas Prairie locally, and Coeur d’Alene, Sandpoint, Rathdrum and Wallace in the Silver Valley to the north.

The decision does not affect the LC Valley 19-U team currently playing games only at Lewiston’s Church Field. (Lewiston Tribune)
