Milford Drawing Positive Reviews as State Tournament Host

The man behind the scenes running this week's American Legion state tournament said Milford's performance as the host of the eight-team showcase is drawing rave reviews.

"Many league officials have said that Milford is the complete package," said Tournament Director Steve Gulino, "having a great field, staff, various parking options, and an amazing overall atmosphere. "It is high up on many peoples lists when compared to other hosts in recent memory."

Gulino said that Milford, hosting the tournament for the first time since 2005, has the perfect complex for the event and said the staff has been crucial to the success of the state playoffs as a whole.

"The volunteers come to the field eager to work and have done a great job so far," Gulino said. "These people are the key to running a good tournament."

Legion baseball is a celebrated tradition in Milford and the program prides itself on highly competitive play, especially when it comes to the state tournament.

On a near-perennial basis, Milford has played into late July, making runs deep into the post season. With the tournament being hosted in Milford this summer, an automatic bid was secured for Post 59.

Even with the benefit of the automatic bid, hosting a tournament of this nature presents many challenges. Maintaining pristine field conditions, running a concession stand, and assisting with parking are among the many tasks assigned to a group of dozens of volunteers this week.

Fino Field has always been considered a special place when it comes to Legion baseball and Gulino said officials and observers are saying the site has lived up to that expectation thus far.

Milford is currently 2-1 in the tournament and faces off against Braintree on Wednesday evening in an elimination game.
