Parma Gophers “A” American Legion Baseball 

  • 2017 Inaugural Season.
  • $350 Player Fee (subject to change annually) payable to Parma Gophers American Legion Baseball (covers coaches, uniforms, umpires, equipment, insurance, etc.)
  • Tournament Fees may be divided equally amongst team members (eventually we will secure sponsors to cover these events) unless there are funds available for the program to cover them.
  • Travel Fees to out of town tournaments will be covered by families (eventually we will secure sponsors to cover these expenses)
  • Minimum three (3) games weekly and as many tournaments monthly as we can find and afford to play in locally and out of town.  A schedule of 30-40 games will be created.
  • Season will run from the end of May through the third week of July.
  • Parma Gophers Baseball is operated and coached by Director Andy “SwensSwenson who has been a high school (current Parma High School Head Baseball Coach) and college coach for 19 years in addition to 19 years as a MLB Associate Scout. I own and operate Swenson Baseball Co. and Swenson Athletics, LLC. They can be found at and and I will oversee the entire operation with my coaching staff and will be present at practices and games.  Feel free to email me at or text/call me at (208) 484-6860. 
  • Coaches for all teams will be hired based on an interview by the President/Head Coach.  Preference will be given to experienced baseball acumen as a player and/or coach.  I have many former coaches and players who want to be part of this program and I will hire them as coaches for continuity reasons.  All players and coaches will be instructed on the Parma way so all are on the same page for expectations and performance.
  • Fundraisers/Sponsorships will be discussed for all Gopher players to help with tournament fees and travel expenses for out of town events.  Sponsorships from local businesses and individual may be sought out to help with said expenses and fees.
  • Eligible players must have turned 13 years of age prior to 1/1/17.  Players are eligible to play up through their Senior year in High School and must be in the Parma/Notus district OR gain a release from other American Legion districts they reside (if applicable) in order to play for the Parma Gophers.
  • In the event that there are a substantial amount of 13 year olds registered, there may be a Junior Legion team created that will play a separate schedule apart from the “A” team.  Those 13 year olds will make up the Junior Legion team only.  All other players older than 13 years old will play for the “A” team exclusively.
  • Please direct any questions or sign-up inquiries to President/Head Coach Andy “SwensSwenson at or (208) 484-6860.  Thank you and I look forward to having your ballplayer in the Parma Gophers American Legion program for many years to come!  Please feel free to pass this information on to folks who you believe will be interested in American Legion baseball for their ballplayers!

 If you have questions regarding this week's activities, please feel free to call me.

Thank you,
