Barbers cut down foes

Robby Heiberg delivers a pitch during a home game for Madison during the Portland Interscholastic League season. Heiberg is now one of several players from Madison and other local schools on the successful AAA American Legion team, the Barbers.

The Portland Barbers have started the AAA American Legion season as hot as they were at the end of last season. The metro-area baseball club has won its first nine games.

"This team is special," says Barbers coach Joe Duran, who is entering his fourth season with the club.
