Alaska 529 returns as premier sponsor

Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | Jun 5, 2022

Alaska 529 is an education savings plan designed to make it easy for families and friends to save for education in and out of Alaska. Their new incentive programs Dash to Save and Dash to Save More offer unique benefits that are aimed at reducing the burden of paying for higher education.

For more than 20 years they have been committed to providing families with the tools for success when it comes to Alaska's youth and that is exactly why we are grateful for their sponsorship of Alaska Legion Baseball. 

While it may seem like our focus is on the ballfield, the goal of our organization is to provide after school and summer programs that will provide Alaska's youth with the life skills that will help them succeed in whatever path they choose.

We also strive to open as many doors as possible for players to continue playing baseball at the next level and potentially earn a scholarship towards a higher education. With this goal in mind The Alaska 529 became the perfect organization to partner with and what better way to highlight our common goals than to award players with the Alaska 529 Smart Play/Player of the Game.  

This award is given to one player from each team during each live streamed game, which can be watched on www.alaskalegion.com.  

Alaska 529 Midseason Classic is back and better than ever. With the continued support of Alaska 529, we are excited to announce that this year's Alaska Legion AA tournament will feature six of the top teams from the state as well as teams from Buffalo, Minnesota; and Napoleon, Ohio.  

This year's field is sure to turn up the heat for the last weekend in June.

We want to thank Alaska 529 for all they do for families across the state and especially for their continued support of Alaska Legion Baseball.
