The Texas Department of State Health alerted people by letter that they may have been exposed to a contagious person attending the championship.
Mumps has been on the rise with unrelated outbreaks around North Texas and Hawaii in the past few months, which officials said was the worst seen in years but is beginning to subside.
In January, at least 130 people across 25 states reported having the mumps. Those who have not received a second MMR shot should get one as soon as possible, health officials suggest. MMR vaccine is not recommended for children less than 1 year of age. Sharing cups and utensils may also spread the virus.
Most of those infected with the virus, without complications, typically recover within two weeks.
While vaccination against mumps is the best protection against mumps infection, vaccinated individuals may still become infected.
