Batter Up! Sioux Falls To Host Summit League Baseball Tournament
For the second time in the last four seasons, Sioux Falls will host the Summit League Baseball Championship.
South Dakota State will serve as the official host of the 2014 event, which will run May 22nd through May 24th at the Sioux Falls Baseball Stadium.
In a press release, Sioux Falls Sports Authority Executive Director Wes Hall said:
This is a great opportunity for the city of Sioux Falls and The Summit League.
Sioux Falls is a great sports town and we are excited to play a part in the journey to the College World Series.
The tournament features four teams in a double-elimination format, with the winner getting the Summit League’s automatic bid to the NCAA Baseball Tournament, which starts May 30th.
The Jackrabbits won last season’s conference tournament in Rochester, Michigan before being ousted in regional play following losses to Oregon and San Francisco in Eugene, Oregon.
Sioux Falls Stadium last hosted the Summit League Championship in 2011, setting a total attendance record that still stands (5,128).
The Summit League regular season begins the final weekend of March.
