The Legion baseball season has already started, and while a few AA teams have got playing time already, the Bismarck Governors start their season tomorrow in Mandan for the North Dakota National Guard Border Battle.

But as the season gets going, coach Mike Skytland knows that there’s a lot of good players that are on legion teams this year. So, things won’t be easy for the Govs.

"It's a competitive league. Especially all the way through 19-year-olds playing, it's pretty good baseball, and every city combines a little bit in the legion season, and it ends up being pretty good level of baseball, and especially this year, I can see the fact that there's going to be some good teams, there's not going to be a lot of easy nights," said Skytland.

The Govs will play Pierre and Rapid City Post 320 Friday and Saturday at Veterans Memorial Ballpark in Mandan for the Border Battle.
