Napoleon was back at the BP Invitational for the 10th time, the most by an Outside team in the tournament’s 25-year history. The Post 300 River Bandits have qualified for the Legion World Series twice, including in 2013, when they also won the BP Invitational.

The River Bandits also have a Bill Miller title in their history.

The Post 20 Twins enter the tournament playing their best baseball of the season and riding a 10-game unbeaten streak.
