        THURSDAY, July 18th

        Games Begin - Good Luck to All Teams!

        Time: 8:00 AM - All events & games are CENTRAL time.


        Gift Exchange or Gift Swaps:
        There will NOT be a GIFT EXCHANGE or SWAP in the NSA "B" World Series. We feel that many teams are just trying to stretch their budget to make the trip to the World Series and have found that the gift swap at their first game puts an extra burden on the teams.  We would rather you have freedom to choose how the extra funds can be spent.  Maybe share a pizza with a team you've just met?
