Even with disrupted schedule, Indians keep winning

The Iola AA American Legion Indians baseball team learned Tuesday that its home doubleheader on Wednesday was a no-go. That did little to slow the Indians, who swept past Burlington in the process.

BURLINGTON — Anticipating a busy week ahead, John Taylor mapped out his pitching strategies accordingly.

As luck would have it, that busy schedule took a hit when the Iola AA American Legion baseball team learned its Wednesday doubleheader against Pittsburg was a no-go.

“We were trying to get a couple other teams to come, but we weren’t able to get anything put together,” Taylor said. “It’s disappointing any time you lose a home game.”
