If Bee Jays fans feel a little dejected after an 0-3 performance at the NBC World Series, they have plenty of company.alt

While Liberal has been one of the historically best teams at the NBC World Series, playing in the most championship games and only one title away from leading in that category as well, a number of other teams came to Wichita with high hopes and a historic background that also came up short.

Another team that went 0-3 was the USA National Team.

Before the Kansas Stars, the NBC added this team as a draw since they did not play in a league. But they found the competition at the NBC to be difficult as well and did not move on to bracket play.

Another perennial powerhouse to bow out prior to bracket play was the Pacific International League champion Seattle Studs.

Seattle has made a lot of noise at the NBC World Series over the years, but like the Bee Jays, their league championship did not earn them instant success in Wichita.

Many games were close in this year’s tournament, several went to extra innings, and the parity was perhaps at one of its highest points.

Even the Kansas Stars had to rally in the ninth inning for a win in their first game.

One constant remains — of the eight remaining teams, two of them hail from the Jayhawk League (Hays and Derby), a sign of the strength of the premiere conference.
