BISMARCK, N.D. - Babe Ruth Baseball is holding its 13-15 World Series in Bismarck this August.

It's truly a tournament involving the world because today China committed to send a team to the Capital City.

Randy Bina, Bismarck Parks & Rec Executive Director said: "This is a great confirmation that this is an international event, the World Series. I think of the kids that are participating that they will have a chance to play against a team like China it will just be a wonderful experience for the kids and the fans."

Without the renovation of Municipal Park, events like the World Series would not be possible and it's a good chance to showcase the city and the region at the same time.

"I think its a testament to the park district and the administration that they were willing to go out into the community and make those type of improvements and show people not only around the state, the upper midwest but across the country that Bismarck is a baseball community and with that facility we've attracted a number of state and regional tournament and the Northwoods League team is here now and we're adding another notch to our belt with the Babe Ruth World Series coming," said Tim Kuntz, Bismarck recreation manager.

The Babe Ruth World Series in Bismarck begins on August 7 and runs through the August 15.
