Wyoming Legion Baseball 2021 Class ‘A’ State Tournament Scoreboard
The Wyoming American Legion Baseball Class ‘A’ 2021 State Tournament is in Cheyenne. It is July 24-28, 2021.
This is an eight-team, modified, double-elimination bracket. The Cody Cubs are the defending Class ‘A’ State Champions. The Cubs have won five of the last seven state titles. The other two were won by the host team, the Cheyenne Hawks.
