For a team with a lot of LCA guys on it, Big Island Post 217 didn't show a lot of love to the crew from Christiansburg.
Big Island got its American Legion season off to a roar. That roaring noise came from the bats of the 217ers. Four homers were smacked, as Quentin Palmer (twice), Cameron Byrd and Hunter Johnson each tapped a tater.
Keyton Elliot had a pair of doubles and single, while Gavin Porpora had a pair of hits and a couple of RBIs.
