NJCAA World Series

NJCAA Div. II World Series Enid

Every year since 2009 the top 10 National Junior College Athletic Association's baseball teams have traveled the road to Enid to compete in its annual World Series. This year's field is completely wide open. The highest-ranked team to qualify is No. 6, and five of the 10 teams were unranked in the final regular-season poll. The field includes:

  • No. 6 Pearl River (Miss.)
  • No. 11 Mesa (Ariz.)
  • No. 12 Kellogg (Mich.)
  • No. 13 NOC-Enid
  • No. 14 Madison (Wisc.)
  • Monroe (NY)
  • Lincoln Land (Ill.)
  • Northeast Nebraska
  • Lackawanna (Pa.)
  • Pasco-Hernando (Fla.)

The NJCAA will draw up the bracket today. Games begin Saturday at 10 am with the championship game set for Friday, May 31. Will we have another World Series-winning walk-off home run like we did last year (pictured)? Come out to David Allen Memorial Ballpark and see for yourself. Tournament passes are $50 while single-game tickets are $10.

Don't miss the Opening Ceremonies at 6:30 pm Friday. The 10 teams will be introduced, there will be a home run derby with a participant from each team and a youth home run derby, plus a softball game between the Enid Police Department and Enid Fire Department.

Red Dirt Run of Honor

Red Dirt Run of Honor Enid

Start your Saturday off with a run to remember. The Red Dirt Run of Honor is a 5K/Half marathon held in honor the lives and legacies of Oklahoma's fallen heroes who have given their lives in service to our country. A breakfast, ceremony with great prizes, entertainment, and unique awards will be distributed following the race. Dog tags and a certificate of honor will be presented to all entries. Runners may designate the veteran they are running for or will be assigned a fallen hero or veterans to remember their sacrifices. Personalized choices must be pre-registered. 

The half marathon begins at 6:30 am with the 5K starting at 7 am. Early registration through ItsYourRace.com through Wednesday, May 22 is $30 for the 5K and $65 for the half marathon. On-site registration Saturday is $35 for the 5K and $75 for the half marathon.

Field of Honor

See 350 United States flags flying in tribute to heroes who have earned our gratitude through their service and sacrifice. The first Enid Field of Honor begins Wednesday and runs through June 5. These flags will be outside David Allen Memorial Ballpark and in a field southwest of the ballpark. Interested persons may purchase a $50 sponsorship to have a flag flown as your own tribute. Sponsored by Enid Rotary Club.
