Legion Commander’s Cup going to All-Star showcase

All-Star teams from four different American Legion leagues will square off this week for the Commander’s Cup title. In past year, the Commander’s Cup was awarded to the winner of a series between the Wyoming Valley American Legion League champ and the Lackawanna winner.

Teams from the WVALL, and Lackawanna, Bradford and Susquehanna counties will begin a round-robin tournament on Thursday night at Battaglia Field in West Scranton. The WVALL team will face Lackawanna in its opening round game at 5:30 p.m.

The team, which features Greater Pittston’s Kody Nowicki, Ron Musto, and Chris Murphy, will then play Friday against Bradford at Hilldale in Plains at 5:30 p.m., and on Saturday against the Susquehanna team at Hilldale at 5 p.m.

The two teams that come out of the round-robin portion of the tournament will play for the title on Sunday at Battaglia.
