The College of Southern Nevada baseball team is now in Colorado to participate in the Junior College World Series.

On Tuesday, the team hit the field for some practice with a sendoff on Wednesday as the players left for Grand Junction, Colorado.T

he team got sent off in style with people holding posters, chanting and even marching. This is something they've worked on this field for a while to make happen.

The last time the Coyotes competed in the Junior College World Series was 2010 with Las Vegas local and current Washington Nationals player Bryce Harper leading the way.

"Last time we were there Bryce Harper was there. We don't have a superstar on the team this year," said sophomore Jarrett Perns. "Like our coach says, we're a bunch of average Joes. 19 local guys on this team. It would be great to bring it back to the community of Las Vegas."
