Wood Bat World Series coming to Havelock

Published: Thursday, July 10, 2014 at 04:40 PM.

If you’re tired of the dink of aluminum and would prefer the sound of a baseball smacking on ash, maple and birch wood, be at the Havelock Recreation Complex July 25 to 27.

That’s when more than 80 teams will participate in the Crystal Coast Wood Bat World Series. Nations Baseball and the Havelock Parks and Recreation Department have been partial hosts for the tournament for 8- to 14-year-olds for the last three years.

“It’s some good baseball. I think people will enjoy it if they come out,” said Dave Smith, director of Havelock Parks and Recreation.

Teams from North Carolina, Virginia and South Carolina are already registered. Actual times for the games have not been set since registration for the tournament is still open.

“I would say that given that they have more than 80 teams involved I would say that any time you come out here to the complex you are going to be able to see some baseball,” Smith said.

Admission to the games is $6.

Stephanie Duncan, executive director of the Havelock Chamber of Commerce, said her organization would set up a hospitality tent at the event.
