CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now)- The Mayor of Cheyenne, Marian J. Orr invited the Post 6 Sixers baseball team to her office Thursday morning to celebrate the great season they had. Orr says "post 6 has a really great legendary long standing form of excellence in baseball with their community they built such a great program so just wanted to thank them for representing us so well." The 28 time legion baseball 'AA' state champions didn't compete in the Wyoming state tournament this year because they qualified for the Connie Mack World Series. This was the first time in 50 plus years that a Rocky Mountain Region team qualified. Playing at the Connie Mack World Series was a great way for Post 6 to get attention from national scouts. Post 6 player Travis Onisto says "it was all really great competition all these teams scout the country and find the best players so since were home grown we've all been playing with each other for a long time it added to our competitive edge."
For the Post 6 seniors, they weren't upset they were missing the state tournament this year because they have already won a state title. The seniors always had a goal of playing in a bigger tournament. Senior Aidan Colgan says "for us we always talk about at the beginning of every season were gonna make it to the world series we just talked about winning the regional but we never thought about going to the Connie Mack world series we were just thinking about going to the legion world series and we thought this would be a great opportunity for us."
