The Santa Barbara Foresters is the winningest team in the NBC World Series, with ten championship titles. 

The Foresters were founded in 1991, but it wasn’t until 2003 that the team would earn a spot in the NBC World Series championship game, although the Foresters did have some success in the 1990’s. The 1999 team knocked the 1995 winner Team USA out of the running in the tournament. 

After finishing as runners-up in the 2003 and 2005 tournaments, the Foresters won their first NBC World Series title in 2006. Since then, the Foresters have appeared in ten championship games, winning nine more titles for a total of ten. The team is managed by Bill Pintard, a scout for the New York Yankees who is known as America’s most successful summer baseball coach. Propelled by his philanthropy, Pintard was named an Olympic torchbearer in 2000. 

In 2023, the Foresters attempted to be the first team in NBC World Series history to win four consecutive tournament titles, but the Foresters fell short in the championship game to the Hutchinson Monarchs.
