HistorY

Overnight baseball has long been a tradition of the NBC World Series. National Baseball Congress founder Hap Dumont came up with the idea of having late-night and early-morning games in the tournament to make games accessible to Wichita fans working swing and graveyard shifts and tournament director Steve Shaad formalized the tradition in 1990 with the introduction of ‘Baseball ‘Round the Clock” as 17 games in 56 hours. BRTC ran every year after that at the NBC World Series through 2016 before coming to a halt. It returns in 2024 as 11 games in 33 hours.
