After a mostly flawless regular season and a strong start to the playoffs — a fine summer baseball run, all things considered amid the covid-19 pandemic — the Westmoreland American League stayed the course with another tradition by naming its all-league teams.

The league, which normally is known as District 31 of American Legion but was renamed due to the Legion shutting down for baseball this season, released its position-by-position list of its top players Monday on the eve of the championship between Bushy Run and Latrobe.
