Next summer, one of the largest sporting events in the country will come to Bismarck. The Babe Ruth League 13-15-year-old World Series will be held at Municipal Ballpark, Home of Dakota Community Bank and Trust Field.

Over 200 athletes and their families will travel to Bismarck for the event. Ten teams in all will compete in the tournament, which will also include a team from Bismarck, along with the North Dakota state champion in the league.

Vice President of Babe Ruth League Robert Faherty had this to say about Bismarck hosting the league's World Series in 2019:

A trip to the World Series can be the first time our players have been on an airplane or traveled out of their hometown. When our players get here, they will see a town like their own, where the people care about kids and put community first. That's why we are coming to Bismarck for the 13-15 World Series.

All games in the tournament will be held at Municipal Ballpark, Home of Dakota Community Bank and Trust Field from August 8-15, 2019.
