Champions ‘Ride the Ducks’ to YBN Opening Ceremony

05/01/2016, 6:00pm CDT

A fun tradition has been confirmed for the 2nd annual Youth Baseball Network National Championship in Branson, Missouri.

The national organizations’ 2016 World Series Champions participating in the YBN Championship, plus the Missouri State Championship host team, will be traveling to the special YBN Opening Ceremony at the Branson Landing on ‘Ducks Boats’.  Each team will get their own ‘Duck’.

Ride the Ducks was one of several big hits during the 2015 YBN National Championship.  The teams had a great time riding the Ducks around Branson en route to the special opening ceremony. The tradition continues in 2016.

The Ducks are authentic replicas of the WWII DUKW amphibious vehicles. They are built from the ground up under United States Coast Guard (USCG) supervision with the latest in marine safety.  During WWII the DUKW was used to transport troops and supplies from water to land and back again.
