The Liberal Bee Jays played 15 position players and eight pitchers Tuesday to prepare for Saturday’s NBC World Series opener against the Everett Merchants.

Liberal ended in an 8-8 tie with the Wellington Heat, and several newcomers had a chance to get on the field prior to the national tournament.

Josh Crosby made his Bee Jay debut and went two for three with an RBI, and Ethan Earhart also played in his first game as a Bee Jay and went one for one with an RBI.

Liberal moved Jaron Robinson to the mound from his shortstop position for the first inning, and  he never made an appearance at the plate.

Zach Autin (two innings), Cody Wernli (two innings), Colin O’Donnell (0.1 innings), Thomas Garland (0.2 innings), Derek Craft (one inning), Tyler Tognarine (one inning), and Trent Maloney (0.1 innings) all had time on the mound.

Liberal trailed 7-2 in the sixth before scoring three in the sixth and three more in the seventh to take an 8-7 lead.

Wellington tied the game in the bottom of the ninth for the 8-8 draw.
