The championship matchup is set for the 86th National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita; the action takes place at Eck Stadium on the Wichita State University campus as the Santa Barbara Foresters face the Cheney Diamond Dawgs.

Santa Barbara is the lone unbeaten team in this double-elimination tournament. Santa Barabara and Cheney meet at 6:00 p.m. Monday; if the Foresters win, they claim the championship. If the Diamond Dawgs win, that would force a second and final championship game Monday night.

The Foresters defeated Cheney 5-1 Saturday night in the winner's bracket finals.

Cheney advanced to Championship Night with a 10-3 win over the Hutchinson Monarchs on Sunday evening in the loser's bracket finals.
