UPDATE FRIDAY 080318 - 4:00AM
Today (Friday) is the BIG DAY for the WELLINGTON HEAT. The club finished up regular season and tournament play as League and League Tournament Champs, with a 40-9 record! The HEAT was named the 2018 Organization of the Year. Today, none of that matters much. It's opening day at the 2018 NBC Baseball World Series at Lawrence Dumont Stadium in Wichita and in the Championship Week opener that begins at 1PM today, it will be our very own HEAT going up against the San Diego Stars.
Unfortunate news from Thursday's "WIN & IN" games featuring the Mulvane Patriots in one and the Kansas Cannons in the other. Neither will advance on to Championship Week, both after great runs through "First Week" pool play action. On Thursday, the Patriots came up short vs the San Antonio Angels 9-2. In Thursday's nightcap, it was the Colorado Cyclones over the Kansas Cannons 4-1. Season ends for both.
Good Luck today to the HEAT - for live streaming of the NBC Tournament, go to www.nbcbaseball.com - GO HEAT BEAT SAN DIEGO!
