During the 2014 season, the West Salem American Legion hosted regional tournament during the last week of July. This was the first major Legion Baseball event held in West Salem.
During the fall of 2014, the West Salem Legion was presented with a great opportunity, to host the 2015 Wisconsin American Legion State Class A Tournament at the Damian Miller Field. To prepare for such an event to take place, the legion along with Friends of West Salem Baseball have held a number of fundraising events to improve the field, which make it a great tournament. The tournament was held from July 29th to August 2nd, 2015.
The upcoming legion season will be the programs 9th since its creation.
