HAMLET — The Hamlet American Legion baseball team is looking to get back into a regular routine this week.
Post 49 started the summer campaign with a 3-3 record, but saw its last couple of games interrupted by weather. Hamlet hasn’t played a full game since June 7.
Head coach Chip Gordon and Post 49 will return to play on Thursday, starting a three-day stretch of consecutive games.
Hamlet will start a home-and-home series with Wilmington Post 10 Patriots on Thursday and Friday, playing at Memorial Park before traveling to Legion Stadium.
The team’s third game will be a home contest on Saturday against Port City Post 545. All three games are Area 2 conference games and will start at 7 p.m.
Gordon also said Hamlet’s two games against Wilmington Post 10 Veterans have been rescheduled (rain).
The two teams will meet in Wilmington on June 22 and play in Hamlet on July 7 to conclude the regular season.
