Goldpanners play on in NBC World Series

Panners moving on in NBC World Series

The Alaska Goldpanners have brought their high-octane offense to the 80th Annual National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, Kansas, and are in position to qualify for a semifinal.

Two wins on Sunday and Monday have moved the Panner on to the winner’s bracket finals in the tournament. Fairbanks beat the Sedalia (Missouri) Bombers 8-3 on Sunday, then topped the Arvada (Colorado) Colts 8-6 on Monday. The success has set the Panners up with a 2 p.m. (ADT) game today with the San Diego (California) Waves. Luckily, the Panners are familiar with the Waves after sweeping them in three non-league games in late June in Fairbanks.
