CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - What started as a game between friends has evolved into a tradition that means much more on a backyard wiffle ball diamond.

The 27th annual Wiffle Ball World Series was held in Cape Girardeau on Saturday. Team SEMO Sasquatch won the championship for the second consecutive year.

Jeff Augustine and Mike Renick helped start the Series at Sherwood Yards, as it’s now called. They say the opportunity to have a reunion with old friends every year outshines the wiffle ball being played.
