Four area baseball players — Jonathan Wong (Union Mine, Occidental Collge), Matt Poulin (Ponderosa, Sonoma State), Troy Zeier (Ponderosa, Sac City), John Creason (Union Mine) — were on the summer roster for the Sacramento Legends semi-pro baseball team which reached the American Amateur Baseball Congress Stan Musial World Series in Farmingdale, N.Y. The team finished with an overall record of 49-24 and were 11-0 as Sacramento Premier League champions before winning the West Regional playoffs in Palo Alto. Wong hit .299; Poulin batted .269 with 24 RBIs; Zeier drove in 26; and Creason went 2-0 on the mound — all stats through Aug. 5. The team dropped its first two last weekend in Farmingdale to end its season.
