FARGO — Brothers Drew and Zach Sandy know all about the legacy of the Fargo Post 2 legion baseball team.

They can just ask their dad and older brother, who had their fair share of glory during their playing days.

Now the two are currently on the team, and hope they write their own chapter of success with the club.

The season this team has put up so far, shows all the indicators of that becoming a reality.

They finished the regular season 41-5, and went on a 26-game winning streak during that time.

Drew and Zach's father Tim represented the club for two years. and was a part of the 1989 team that made the trip to the American Legion World Series.

He then went on the play Class Triple-A for the New York Mets organization, was in the minor leagues from 1990-1993, and was inducted into the American Legion Hall of Fame.

After three decades, all three of his sons have followed in his footsteps by competing for Post 2.

"Thirty years goes by so fast," said Tim. "To have your own kids in such a great program, with rich tradition is neat and special."

The eldest Sandy son, Luke, last played for the club in 2017, and won three consecutive North Dakota Class 2A state titles in his time.

Drew and Zach don't just want to cement their names in Post 2 history; they have big shoes to fill when it comes to the Sandy family legacy too.

"Sports are a big part of the 'Sandy lifestyle'" said catcher and infielder Zach.

"It means a lot to keep the Sandy tradition of playing for this team going," said infielder and outfielder Drew. "What they (Tim and Luke) did before was great, maybe we can do something greater."

Fargo Post 2 takes on Mandan at 4:00 in the first round of the Class 2A state tournament.
