YBNNC Teams ‘Ride The Ducks’ to Opening Ceremony

04/15/2017, 9:45am CDT

A Youth Baseball Network National Championship Opening Ceremony tradition will continue in 2017, as the teams participating will, once again, be treated to a special ride to the ceremony on Branson’s Ride The Ducks’.

Ride The Ducks’ is the Official YBN Team Transportation Vehicle. These unique amphibious vehicles resemble those used during World War II – and are used for fun tours throughout the Branson area.

Each of the eight teams participating in the Championship will have their own personal Duck – and will tour fun-filled Branson en route to the special YBN Opening Ceremony at the Branson Landing on beautiful Lake Taneycomo.

The ride will be led by a fun, feisty, and fabulously interesting Duck captain.

The YBN Opening Ceremony has quickly become a well-known, fun tradition in the Youth Baseball Industry. Between the Duck Boat ride, talented Branson entertainers, guest speakers, and the fabulous water and fire display at the Branson Landing, it’s an opening ceremony like no other in youth baseball.

Teams participating in the YBN National Championship will be the 2017 12U National Champions from AABC, AAU, CABA, Dixie, Dizzy Dean, NABF, Jacoby Ellsbury Indigenous World Series, plus a host team representing Greater Midwest Baseball of St. Louis.
