The Iowa Western Community College baseball team won’t need Google Maps or GPS to find its way to Grand Junction, Colorado. The Reivers are headed to the NJCAA Division I World Series for the 10th time in the last 14 years and while the 11 and a half hour route remains the same, it never gets old.
“The two things I am in this for is number one for my players to grow up, get an education and get ready to move on”, said Iowa Western coach Marc Rardin. “the second thing is to get better as a player and a teammate and get in this position.”
The Reivers not only have experience playing in the World Series but winning it as well. They will be in search of their fourth title since 2010.
