This was the final NSC tournament held in Greeley (CO). The ISL was created in December, 1950 by Carrol Forbes and in 1951 the inaugural ISL tournament was held in
Greeley (CO).

At this 1950 NSC tournament, Hoak Packers were unbeaten, winning 5 games, allowing 7 runs while scoring 16 runs. Their first 3 wins were by one run and the lone shutout they recorded was in the 3-0 final over Hanford Kings.

The first woman manager of an NSC world tournament team made her debut in this tournament. Mrs. Ruth Mohr took control of the Marchese team at mid-season and
guided her club to the metro, district, and state championships to qualify for the world tournament. The team lost its final game on Red Denham’s (Crane) no-hitter.
