How the Series found its home

This will be the 63rd year of the NAIA World Series, which originated in 1957 at Alpine, Texas. After a three-year run in Texas, it was relocated to Sioux City, Iowa, until 1962. The Series then moved to Phil Welch Stadium in St. Joseph, Mo., for an eight-year run, ending in 1969, then returned in 1974 for five more years. In between the St. Joseph tournaments, the Series was held at Municipal Stadium in Phoenix. Nashville then was the host of the 1979 and 1980 tournaments, before the Series moved to Lubbock, Texas, for three years.

Lewiston’s Harris Field began an eight-year run as the home of the Series in 1984. From 1992-99, the Series was contested in Des Moines, Iowa; Sioux City, Iowa; Tulsa, Okla.; and Jupiter, Fla. The nomadic Series then found a home in Lewiston in 2000. This year’s tournament will be the 20th consecutive at Harris Field, which has been the site for 28 of the last 36 Series.

Lewis-Clark State has played at the most sites. Including Lewiston, the Warriors have played in seven Series venues.

The 2019 Avista NAIA World Series starts in nine days.
