The Boise Gems American Legion Baseball team is primarily comprised of high school age young men from the Southeast Boise area. The Gems are comprised of two teams that compete during the summer; the equivalent of a junior varsity and varsity club. The American Legion summer baseball program allows our youth to compete at the highest levels with exposure to collegiate and professional scouts as well as life lessons used in their adult life beyond baseball. These teams compete against other American Legion sponsored teams throughout the Treasure Valley as well as travel to in-state and out-of-state tournaments. American Legion baseball is focused on developing young men with sound values derived from participation in team sports and translating those values into the community.
