The 2011 World Series is complete.  The NBBA would like to thank all from the Indianapolis Parks and Recreation group and Mary and John Geiss Complex for hosting the 2011 World Series. Thanks to the Wyndham Indianapolis West and surrounding hotels for providing a gracious and comfortable atmosphere for the teams of the NBBA while they participated in the tournament.
The 2011 Beep Baseball World Series Champions are the West Coast Dawgs. While everyone remembers how exciting the game ended at the 2010 World Series, little did everyone know that the Championship game at the 2011 World Series would be as exciting and such a nail biter!

Throughout the game the lead changed several times, however, when the West Coast Dawgs came up to bat in their half of the sixth inning, they were trailing the Taiwan Homerun by 4; 11 - 7.

As heard in the audio podcast of the 2011 NBBA World Series Championship game by Kevin and Wayne Sibson, the finish to the game was simply spectacular.

The final score was West Coast 12 - Taiwan Homerun 11, with the winning run being scored by Elexis Gillette.
