2013 Steak Out

The 5th Annual Steak Out was held January 5, 2013, and by all accounts it was a huge success. Nearly 360 people were served a delicious barbecued steak dinner with all of the trimmings, browsed through a silent auction boasting over 160 items, and danced to the outstanding live music of the LC Valley's own Coltrain. In addition, items including a Walla Walla wine tour, New Meadows cabin, Gonzaga basketball tickets, a snowmobile trip and more were auctioned live prior to the entertainment. The Steak Out is L-C American Legion's largest fundraiser, and it raises nearly 25% of the amount needed to fund the Twins and Cubs for a season. We would like to thank all who attended or supported this event through donations, purchases, or helped in any way. There are too many to mention in this space, but we greatly appreciate the efforts of so many in our community to make this event successful.

We Are Not Just About Baseball!

Community Service is very important to L-C American Legion Baseball, and on June 18, Twins players put this philosophy into action by volunteering at Wild Animal Rehabilitation of Idaho, Inc. This facility helps care for injured, orphaned and abandoned wildlife. Most animals are restored to the wild after they are able, while others live on site if they are unable to survive in the wild on their own. 45 acres of natural habitat and enclosures require much work to maintain. Players helped to clear debris and logs as well as put gravel onto pathways. Thank you Tim Cochnauer for this opportunity to give back to our community!

Thanks for a Great Steak Out!

Our largest fundraiser of the season was held Saturday, January 7 at the Nez Perce County Fair Pavillion. Nearly 400 people enjoyed delicious grilled steak, salad, baked potato, roll and refreshments. We also featured a silent auction of a large variety of items donated by generous community members, board members and players' families. In addition, we auctioned 10 items in a live auction - a Walla Walla Wine Tour, Coeur d'Alene and New Meadows Lake Cabins, National Rodeo Finals tickets, Trailblazer, Gonzaga Basketball and Mariners VIP packages - just to name a few. Topping off the evening were the fabulous Kingpins providing live entertainment. They are an amazing band! Patrons danced until well after midnight! We would like to thank everyone involved in this exciting event for all of their hard work in making it a huge success!

Fun at 2nd Annual Youth Baseball Night!

On June 8, the rain stayed away long enough for about 60 Little League and Babe Ruth baseball players to spend the afternoon with the Twins and Cubs coaches and players during our second annual Youth Baseball Clinic. Following two hours of instruction, kids were treated to free hot dogs and sodas. Everyone all had a great time. With their new t-shirts, the kids will be able to watch any Cubs or Twins regular season game free of charge all summer! Thanks to Patti Meshishnek and Sharon Conley for organizing this event!

Parent/Player Picnic not quite a Rainout!

Even though a rain and hailstorm blew through our parent/player picnic May 26, everyone was able to socialize, eat, and finalize paperwork and concessions shifts - at least until the food and paper got soaked! It's been a rainy spring so far, but we look for sunnier days ahead! The Twins open with a road game Monday, May 30 at Walla Walla, and the Cubs open June 8 at Asotin. Good Luck Teams!

Randy Fuller (CHS-Twins) and Tyler Charlo (LHS-Cubs) seek shelter from the storm!

Debbie Willey, Kevin Kracke, and others sign up for the best concessions shifts!

Players socialize before the rain delay!
The Twins and Cubs will be travelling in style this summer in our new (well, new to us!) van! With reclining seats and rear storage, there should be plenty of room to spread out during road trips. Special thanks to Mark Evett, who drove the van from Las Vegas to Lewiston; to Joe Hall who negotiated the purchase and provided for the graphics along with donating passenger vans from his dealership the past two seasons; and to the board members who have diligently raised and saved funds. It is so rewarding to see the fruits of our labor!

L-CALB Implements new DAT policy

The Board of Directors of both L-C American Legion Baseball and Post 13 have a approved a new Drug/Alcohol/Tobacco Policy which is in effect immediately beginning with the start of the 2011 playing season. The new policy allows for random testing of players and coaches for drugs and alcohol and outlines the penalties for testing positive. Upon selection to either the Cubs or Twins, parents and players will be asked to sign a consent form in front of a notary public. This will take place at the parent/player picnic on May 26. Picture ID (driver's license or student ID) will be required when signing. For a closer look at the policy, please refer to the link under the "links" section on this site. There's also a link to a corresponding article featured in the Lewiston Morning Tribune May 17, 2011.
