College Baseball Hall of Fame brings baseball tournament to Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Thursday, the College Baseball Hall of Fame, in partnership with Premier Baseball, announced next year's arrival of the Sophomore World Series.

This will be the largest tournament to be hosted in Lubbock, and will bring 40 to 50 teams for tournament play. Premier Baseball is currently involved with the College Baseball Hall of Fame in bringing tournaments to Lubbock.

"The presence of the Hall of Fame in Lubbock is one of many reasons our membership voted to move the World Series to Lubbock," said James Ellison, President of Premier Baseball. "We see a great future in working with the Hall of Fame bringing more tournaments to Lubbock as the facility comes to fruition."

The tournament will be held on July 26th through the 31st, at baseball facilities city-wide.
