Wildcats to Begin Fall World Series Nov. 1

MANHATTAN, Kan. – The Kansas State baseball team will compete in a three-game, intra-squad Fall World Series beginning Tuesday, Nov. 1 to wrap-up its official fall practices.

The trio of seven-inning contests at Tointon Family Stadium are set for Tuesday and Thursday at 3 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 p.m. All three games will feature free admission with gates opening one hour before first pitch.

The contests provide an opportunity for fans to preview the Wildcats as they move towards their season beginning in February. The team has been taking part in their official fall practices since September.

K-State, led by 14th-year head coach Brad Hill, returns 15 letterwinners from last year’s team that reached the Big 12 Baseball Championship for the ninth time in the last 10 years. Key returners include All-Big 12 selections infielder Jake Scudder and catcher Josh Rolette. Scudder was named 2016 Big 12 Newcomer of the Year and is part of the Wildcats’ nine-man senior class.
