McPherson hit a grand slam when the McPherson Pipeliners were established in 2018. The amateur baseball club chose McPherson as its home after signing a three-year contract with Nation Baseball Club (NBC) and Kansas Collegiate League Baseball (KCLB). All home games are played at Light Capital Field. The season opener on May 31, 2018, was a win! Goals include competing for a national title at the NBC World Series held in Wichita, Kan., at the end of the summer.
Owner and General Manager Caleb Hartman runs the program with Coach Chad Pinson. The 2018 season features 32 talented athletes from across the nation playing 21 home games. All are dedicated to encouraging youth to learn more about the sport. Be sure to check out "Little Liner" activities designed for ages 7-14.
