The Washington State American Legion 2015 campaign opened this weekend with Trail hosting a pair of division rivals in Mead and Central Valley at Butler Park.

Trail got better as the weekend wore on, as the single-A Orioles dropped its opening doubleheader to Mead on Saturday 12-6 and 14-4, before rebounding to take two from the Bears of Central Valley 9-1 and 17-6 in five innings.

It’s a good start for the young team of U-16 players who are now playing in a slightly more competitive American League division in the WSAL.

The AA Orioles also played Central Valley in exhibition matches on the weekend, dropping 2-of-3 games at Butler Park to the Spokane team.
