To The Editor:

The Washington American Legion family would like to congratulate Mike Gardner, his coaches and the Post 218 Legion Senior baseball team on winning the Zone 1 championship on Sunday. Mike and his team showed what sportsmanship and keeping faith in yourself and your team can do in coming back from a defeat.
