WELLINGTON HEAT IS RUNNERS UP AT THE NBC WORLD SERIES
The WELLINGTON HEAT almost pulled it off – that being a National Title their first season here in Wellington.
In Saturday evening’s NBC Championship Final game at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, the Wellington boys couldn’t get their bats in gear soon enough to hold off the Seattle (WA) Studs – final score Seattle 5 Wellington 1. The HEAT would only reach 1st base “5” times during the contest and their lone run came in the bottom of the 9th. SEATTLE had 8 hits and controlled the tempo of the game from the 2nd inning on. On the season, the HEAT finished 39-17 with a 2nd place finish behind HAYS in the Jayhawk League and of course a 2nd place finish in the WORLD at the NBC Tournament! Both Seattle and Wellington will receive “automatic bids” for the 2014 NBC World Series Tournament’s “Championship Round” in the summer of 2014!
