NBC tournament to bring back “Baseball Round the Clock”


The National Baseball Congress is getting ready for its annual World Series tournament in Wichita, and the organization has announced that the “Baseball Round the Clock” schedule will return this year after an eight-year hiatus.

Fans will have the opportunity to watch 11 games over a 33-hour period, starting at noon Saturday, July 27th and running through a 6 p.m. game on Sunday, July 28th.

NBC tournament director Katie Woods said in a press release that the event has been one of the most exciting and unique events in the World Series, and for the 90th anniversary this year it was time to bring the event back.   She said, “We’re ready to introduce a new generation of competitors to some of the same elements – Midnight Madness, the cuckoo clock check-ins and ‘I survived’ shirts – that diehard NBC fans remember.”

Fans can purchase Baseball Round the Clock tickets now at nbcbaseball.com for $20.  The tickets will get participants entry for all 11 games as well as a punch card and wristband that will be used for check-ins at least once per game.   When the check-ins sound, fans will have ten minutes to report to the designated check-in stand to get their cards punched to continue in a competition.   Participants who have their cards punched at every check-in will receive a free t-shirt, a pass for the rest of the tournament, and they will be entered into a raffle for a series of grand prizes.

The NBC World Series runs July 25th through August 3rd, and all games will be played at Eck Stadium at Wichita State University.
