The Peninsula Oilers will not be going to the National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, Kan., this year. In fact, none of the Alaska Baseball League teams will make the trip.
James Clark, the general manager for the Oilers, said Peninsula is not making the trip partially due to financial reasons, and partially due to the health of the team.
The Oilers finished second at the tournament last year. The last year the Oilers skipped the tournament was 2009.
Clark said the Oilers board of directors remains committed to sending teams to Wichita.
