*1963 - Assistant Coach Al Bortke ran the Bismarck Legion baseball club flawlessly on the field at the State Tournament in Mandan and the Region 6 Tournament in Selina, KS. Head Coach Bob "Goose" Johnson watched from the stands while recovering from blood clots in his left leg suffered in a bus-car accident just prior to the state tournament. Bismarck defeated Grand Forks 8-4 in 12 innings to win its sixth state American Legion baseball title.
