Any worries that Wellington Heat fans have about the team leaving town can be put to rest. However, the team is “on the move” but just to another league. The Kansas Collegiate League Baseball and the Heat have announced that Wellington will be joining the KCLB in 2017.
“I can tell you right now, the Heat isn't going anywhere anytime soon,” team Owner, Rick Twyman told Studio 55. He added that his son Kaden will wear a Wellington jersey in a couple years, which they are both very excited about.
Wellington will have to do better in the second half of the Jayhawk League season if they hope to play for the league title. They finished the first half of the season just a game and a half ahead of the last place team, the Derby Twins who swept the Heat in a three game series June 28-30.
We know utility and water rates have gone up and several are experiencing large bills this summer. That is what it is. We hope the following info can provide useful information as you plan ways to beat the heat and save $$ at the same time.
The Wellington Heat had two of their last three games post-poned due to rain, but that wasn't the case on Saturday, June 25 at home against the El Dorado Bronocs – a game in which the Heat would come up short in.
The visiting team jumped out to a 3-1 lead after the first and never looked back. It was 10-3 El Do after the fifth and in spite of a 10-hit effort by the home team, Wellington found itself on the wrong end of a 13-3 final score.
