Lynchburg - This week's ABC 13 Team of the Week is the Lynchburg Post 16 American Legion baseball team.  Post 16, made up of players from Brookville, Heritage, E.C. Glass, Amherst and Appomattox County, is off to an 8-and-1 start this summer.  Former E.C. Glass star Nygeal Andrews is hitting .647 with four homers and 23 rbi, Matt Blanks also tagging the ball, .588 with three homers, 19 rbi.

             Post 16's only loss so far came to Danville Post 325.  Lynchburg plays at Danville Thursday night.  

Chris Glaize, LYNCHBURG POST 16 HEAD COACH, said "They are very good.  We love the opportunity, we love to come back and compete, that's what this team likes to do, they like to go out and compete.  And to play a good team like that, yea we're very excited."

Travis Burnette, POST 16 OUTFIELDER/PITCHER, said "These guys are a lot of fun to hang around, they're very laid back, know when to take care of business during the game.  But you know practices, hanging out, they're a lot of fun to be around."

Matt Blanks, POST 16 FIRST BASEMAN/PITCHER, said "It's basically an all-star team from all these high schools, so they're all really good ballplayers.  It's competitive for playing time and everybody understands the game.  And if they sit, they're fine with it and they work hard every day."
