A Community Day with free admission Wednesday, collegiate baseball and softball through Saturday…it’s time. It’s time once again for Great Bend to welcome the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC) for their baseball and softball championships at the Great Bend Sports Complex.

Great Bend Recreation Commission Executive Director Diann Henderson said her staff and city staff try to make the tournaments a memorable experience for all those in attendance.

"The KCAC tournaments are always a welcome site to Great Bend," said Henderson. "We work collectively to get those fields in tip-top shape for a premier tournament."

A pair of softball games get underway at 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 5, followed by two more at 5 p.m. Baseball begins at 11 a.m. Wednesday and will have games at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Complete brackets can be viewed in the links below.
