Ten teams from five countries will be part of the Colt World Series in Lafayette next week. Qualifying is still underway, but so far, squads from Germany and Indonesia have advanced to the series, which begins August 2.

Tim Clark, president of Lafayette Colt Tournaments, says this year, the board will get a better idea of the event’s economic impact. An effort is underway to reach out through Facebook and Twitter, and volunteers will ask fans to provide their zip code as a way to track from where fans are coming.

Visit Lafayette-West Lafayette estimates the Colt World Series fans bring in around $300,000 to the community each year. You can find more details of the tournament HERE.
