Local, regional, national, and international visitors will come out to support the players, creating an estimated attendance of 85,000 for 2012.
The boys will be in town to play in the 2012 Connie Mack World Series August 3rd - 10th, with players arriving on August 2nd. It is a rich tradition of the series to host the players in our homes and cheer them on while they are in our community.
