Changes coming to District 31 American Legion landscape

Paul Schofield

Things continue to change in District 31 American Legion: Murrysville is back, and Jeannette is out.

Murrysville returns after missing the 2018 season, and Jeannette is out after a disappointing end to its season.

The league will begin playing May 17 and run through July 5.

Hempfield East is the returning champion. It will use Pitt-Greensburg as its home field after playing at Hempfield High School last summer. Hempfield East won the Region 7 tournament and advanced to the state tournament.

The other teams in the league are Bushy Run, Derry, West Hempfield, Kiski Valley, Latrobe, Mt. Pleasant, Unity, Yough and Young Township, from Indiana County, which returns for a second season.

The Westmoreland Junior Legion League expanded to 18 teams.

The Westmoreland County teams are Burrell, Hempfield East, Kiski Valley, Ligonier Valley, Mt. Pleasant, Murrysville, PAL-Irwin, Penn Township and West Hempfield.

Joining the league from Allegheny County are Baldwin, Bethel Park, Monroeville, Penn Hills, Plum and Riverview. The Fayette County teams are Connellsville, Smithfield and Uniontown.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
