The Sluggers, based out of Wichita, had played last season at Newman and at Tabor College the season before but are moving into Butler county this season.


The Wichita Sluggers will rename as the Rose Hill Sluggers and play their 2020 season at Rose Hill High School and try to compete for a berth in the NBC World Series.


It was not decided until Monday, June 8 if the Sluggers would play at Rose Hill with other options, such as Clearwater on the table if the school had chosen to not let the Sluggers play at the high school but the school prevailed, letting the season take place.


The Sluggers are scheduled to play the Derby Twins on Monday, June 15 for their season opener at 7 p.m. at Rose Hill High School. The two teams will play four times in the opening series, with each team hosting two games.


Throughout the season, there will be games play at Wichita State’s Eck Stadium, giving each team a chance to showcase at the big stadium. The Sluggers are scheduled to play their four times this season, with the first coming on Tuesday, June 23 against the Great Bend Bat Cats.


The Sluggers are scheduled to play 18 games at Rose Hill, four at Eck and 13 away from metro area. One game will be played in West Wichita, as it meets Great Bend halfway.


They will also play four non-conference games, with three of those coming June 25, 26, and 28. All games will be played at Rose Hill.


The Sluggers are coming off a 17-20 last season and were 14-15 in 2018. They had a stretch of three straight trips to the NBC World Series from 2014-16.
