THE LEGACY CONTINUES
Still today, Dumont’s tournament continues to showcase the best amateur talent in America and around the world. From Satchel Paige to Mark McGwire, Joe Carter, Roger Clemens, Ozzie Smith, Albert Pujols, Tim Lincecum, and Heath Bell, the NBC World Series is a who’s-who for the future of the Major Leagues. Each year, nearly every MLB team sends scouts to the tournament looking for the next diamond in the rough. With 30 teams competing in a two week double elimination tournament, the days are long and the sheer volume of players is staggering. The NBC World Series is a tournament which has no equal and will crown its 85th National Champion in August.
