2005 ISC-II Tournament of Champions Feature Story & Photos in Softball Magazine

Monday, November 14th, 2005

The Fall 2005 issue of Softball Magazine, which just hit the newstands, features ISC II MVP Casey Halstead on the “inside” cover, along with a feature story penned by ISC II Commish Blair Setford, “Changing of the Guard at ISC II” and photos by Fastpitchwest’s own photographer, Maddy Flanagan.

The magazine is available on a subscription basis, which we heartily recommend. During 2005, the magazine carried 5 feature length articles and photos of men’s fastball, including the AAU Tournament, Red Rock, Rose Cup, and now the ISC II.

Streaming of Video and Audio Broadcasts from International Softball Congress Tournaments in Wisconsin Draw Larger Crowds

Streaming of Video and Audio Broadcasts from International Softball Congress Tournaments in Wisconsin Draw Larger Crowds

“Is anybody ‘out there’ listening? Or watching?”

Those questions are always a key concern when any form of communication is produced and presented to audiences – – particularly audiences which are not at the scene of the action being described.

Well, they WERE out there listening, and they WERE out there watching when the streaming of audio broadcasts and the live streaming video were coming from Eau Claire and Chippawa Falls, Wisconsin, last week during the I.S.C. World Tournament and the ISC-II Tournament of Champions.

The numbers are in, and they are good – – – VERY good! (more…)

All 2005 Broadcast Archives Now Available through

Thursday, August 25th, 2005

To all fastball fans:

The archives for the 2005 ISC II Tournament of Champions played at Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin are now available via Ballparkradio/Sportjuice. The 2005 Archive consists of 26 games.

For easy access:

* Go to Ballparkradio,
* Click the ISC II Tournament of Champions logo at the top of the main page;
* Once you get to the ISC II Sportsjuice page, hold down the Control Key (to avoid your pop-up blockers, if you use them) click on the green rectangle near the top right that says: archives
* From the drop down menu, choose the game you want to listen to and play.

Please Note: In all Sportsjuice archives, you can now scroll through the timeline of the game by clicking, holding, and dragging the slider bar to listen to whatever portion of the game you want. This is different from previous years’ archives, where Sportsjuice games
could only be heard linearly, from start to finish.

The ISC II scoreboard, with links to the box scores and play-by-play is a great companion while you’re listening. It enables you to jump around (fast forward or go backwards) during the broadcast to find a particular hit or play.

For those who have inquired, we will be making audio CD’s of the games available for purchase. Watch The Deuce Blog at ( or Al’s Fastball for further announcements.

The ISC II broadcast crew sends out a big thank you to all who tuned into the broadcasts. We thoroughly enjoyed the hundreds of emails received from members of the listening audience, which topped 8,000 in terms of hits on the game links, and we appreciate the kind words and encouragement. All of us are looking forward to even bigger and better things in 2006 in Kitchener, ON.
