The NBC World Series has been bringing together collegiate/semi-pro teams to compete every summer since 1935. The tournament, which typically lasts about two weeks, showcases some of the best summer baseball in the country and a unique, fan-friendly environment. The 2019 Series was played at Wichita State University’s Eck Stadium and, in addition to those who attended in person, 175,000+ live-stream viewers took in the event, connecting with the baseball community all across the country.
