The Bismarck Americans 12-year-old baseball league is hosting a hot dog feed before they leave for the Cal Ripken World Series.

The hot dog feed fundraiser will take place this Thursday, July 31 from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Scheels Sports Complex.

The free-will donation will help support the team on their trip to Alachua, Fl where they will play in the Cal Ripken World Series. This World Series hosts the best 12-year-old baseball players from all over the world. This year there will be 10 teams from the United States and eight from different parts of the world.

The Bismarck Americans are back-to-back state champions and the 2014 Midwest Plains Regional Champions.

Help support these local youth and their families as they represent North Dakota at the World Series!
