If you build it, they will come. And they’ll keep coming and coming.

That’s been the story at Prospect Meadows this summer with another 47 baseball teams here this weekend for the 2022 WWBA Midwest World Series.

The 31 teams in the 15U bracket began playing Thursday. Another 16 outfits in the 14U division will join them Friday, with the tournaments ending on Sunday.

Illinois tops the charts with 17 clubs in the two tournaments. There are 10 teams from Wisconsin, with five apiece from Iowa and Minnesota. All told, ballclubs from 10 states will be competing at Prospect Meadows with squads from Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, Michigan, Indiana and Colorado also represented.

There will be another big Perfect Game event here next weekend, which will push the numbers for June and July to approximately 500 teams from 20 states. They’ll be bringing an estimated 19,000 people to our area to make the cash registers sing.
