Bill Iezzi: Brooklawn Legion Ready

This morning I called Brooklawn coach Dennuis Barth, pitcher Cody Brown and third-baseman Brett Tenuto.

They all said the same thing regarding Friday's first game of the Senior American Legion World Series tournament in Shelby, N.C.

They are ready.

Brooklawn is scheduled to play Waipahu, Hawaii, the Northwest Region champ, in game three at 5 p.m. Win or lose, the Brookers will play again on Saturday in the eight-team, double-elimination tournament.

"I can't wait; I'm really excited to open up," said Brown, the starting pitcher.

Barth said the team's batting average in the post-season tournaments (district, state, regional) is about the same as the regular season: .390.

Tenuto said he is hitting over .400.
