Jasper Reds to compete in NBC World SeriesJune 12, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
The Jasper Reds semipro baseball team will once again be making an appearance in the National Baseball Congress World Series. For the seventh time in their history, the Reds will compete in the NBC World Series as they accepted one of only three at-large bids to the 85th annual edition of the tournament.
The field was reduced from 30 to 26 teams this year due to the fact that the entire tournament will be played at Eck Stadium in Wichita, the home of the Division I Wichita State Shockers.
In addition to the Reds, teams from seven other states (Alaska, California, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Washington) as well as a team from Canada will all compete for the championship. The tourney is the longest continuous annual sporting event in the country.
The Reds last competed in the NBC World Series in 2017 and also competed in 1993, 1994, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
The tournament will begin play on Saturday, July 27.
