BISMARCK, N.D. - It's official, Bismarck will be hosting a World Series next summer.
The 13-to-15 Year Old World Series will be in the Capital-City a little less than a year from now.
The contract was signed Tuesday.
"Obviously from Babe Ruth league's perspective we don't take this lightly. We've gone through the process of having the chance to visit the community before. We looked at Municipal Ballpark as home base for a baseball event and found that it would be a perfect venue for our teams and players and coaches to come here and have a big league experience," said Robert Faherty, Jr., senior vice president/national commissioner of Babe Ruth League
Faherty says there was another thing that impressed him a lot when they were looking at Bismarck.
"We've met some of the finest people we've ever dealt with here in Bismarck," said Faherty, Jr. "We expect this event to be successful beyond our hopes and dreams and make some memories that local teams and local players will have a chance to be a part of also."
The World Series will begin Aug. 8, 2019.
