BOZEMAN -- The Department of Montana American Legion Baseball, along with sponsor Universal Athletic, has announced its Class AA and Class A all-state and all-conference teams as voted by coaches.

“Universal Athletic is proud to partner with American Legion Baseball and congratulate the recipients for their outstanding season," Universal Athletic president Greg Miller said in a media release. “Connecting to the baseball community state-wide has and will continue to be important to Universal Athletic. We have had countless employees over the years that have played American Legion Baseball, and many have continued to contribute to programs after their playing days.”

Bozeman, which won the Class AA state championship on Sunday, had six players earn all-state recognition. The Bucks' Logan Pailthorpe was also named to the Class AA all-conference team. Pailthorpe was the batting champion at last week's state tournament, while teammate Alton Gyselman was named the state tournament MVP.

Davis Mosier earned all-state honors for the Class A state champion Billings Blue Jays, who also had Lance Schaaf and Jessen West named to the Eastern A all-conference team. Schaaf was the Class A state tournament MVP, and teammate Kruz Slevira was the tournament batting champion.
