The No. 1 seed Kennesaw State Club Baseball team won the National Club Baseball Association World Series with a 5-2 win over the Stephen F. Austin University Lumberjacks in late May.

The Owls club team went undefeated, savoring their first National Championship win at Brooks Stadium in Paducah, Ky. They knocked off the University of Wyoming and the University of Maryland earlier in the series.

KSU player Caleb Moore was awarded the 2013 Division II World Series MVP.

“Paducah's Brooks Stadium pairs well with collegiate baseball tournaments,” said Paducah Convention & Visitors Bureau Sales Director Fowler Black. “Not only does Paducah provide a neutral site for competition, but it's geographically centered. NCBA's World Series teams came from Boston to Wyoming and Wisconsin to Texas.”

The National Club Baseball Association is a division of the Collegiate Club Sports League. Eight collegiate baseball teams won their respective NCBA districts to earn a spot in the tournament at Brooks Stadium, May 17-21.
