Baseball season is here, and this summer Philip has a legion baseball team.

It has been several years since Philip has had a teener baseball team. Now, the team will be called the American Legion Baseball Post 173 in order for older boys to be included in the team. All boys born in the years 1991-1997 are allowed to play on the team.The Philip team is classified in the "B" region of baseball because the Philip High School enrollment is less than 500 students. Throughout the state of South Dakota, there are currently 66 American Legion baseball teams.
