NBC World Series: Going strong, not leaving Wichita
WICHITA, Kan. — The nation’s largest and longest continuous sporting event has called Wichita home since 1935, and the future is looking just as bright for the NBC World Series.
“We’re excited about the new promotions and fan experiences we have planned for this year,” said National Baseball Congress General Manager/Tournament Director Kevin Jenks. “We also want to clarify any confusion about the future of the NBC World Series in Wichita. Regardless of any plans that may affect Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, we have made arrangements that ensure we will have a place to play here in Wichita.”
Eck Stadium at Wichita State University has been secured as an alternate, interim venue if it is required. The NBC and WSU have a longstanding relationship, having hosted numerous NBC World Series games over the years.
“We always look forward to playing at Eck Stadium, it’s a great facility for our fans, teams, and supporters,” said Jenks.
The 84th NBC World Series, Powered by Westar Energy, is on deck for another great run of summer family fun beginning July 27th and running through August 11th at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium.
The NBC World Series is in its fourth season as a non-profit, 501©3 organization, independently owned and operated under the NBC Foundation Board of Directors. The NBC Foundation is dedicated to growing and enhancing the game of baseball in our community while paying tribute to our proud baseball tradition. We strive to provide our participants an opportunity to compete against the best, establish and sustain strong partnerships, and provide an entertaining and memorable event for all generations of fans.
