What We Offer
Today, the NBC World Series is one of a kind baseball experience for the elite summer league teams that travel to Wichita from around the United States. Fifty-seven games are packed into two weeks, with an average of four games per day being played. A 20-second clock between pitches and 90-second clock between innings helps to keep the games moving along. NBC membership currently includes teams representing 22 states and players from every state in the USA. For 82 years, the National Baseball Congress World Series has been calling Wichita, KS home. This series has embedded itself in the hearts of long-time baseball fans, some of which have been coming to Lawrence-Dumont Stadium from the time they were born. We know the huge impact that the NBC founder, Raymond Dumont, had on this city, and on baseball. Cigar-chewing Ray was a Wichita native, growing up within its neighborhoods and attending what is now East High School. Well-liked and eccentric, he earned the nickname Happy, Hap for short, and it was a name that stuck with him the rest of his life.
