The World Series is coming to Bismarck. In 2019, Municipal Ballpark will host the 13-15 year-old Babe Ruth World Series.
One of the advantages of hosting the tournament is that Bismarck will get a team in the World Series.
The Bismarck team will join eight other regional champions along with the North Dakota State champ to make up the 10 qualifying teams.
The tournament is expected to bring over 100 athletes along with their families to town, so this is a big win for the city.
“We felt we were ready to host a world series event,” Executive Director of Bismarck Parks and Recreation District Randy Bina said. Ccertainly the renovation of the municipal ball park home of the Dakota Community Bank and Trust field is another reason we feel we have the facility now that can host a world series event.”
The tournament is scheduled for August 8-15 in 2019.
