California Lumberkings Qualify for 2007 ISC II Tournament of Champions

The California Lumberkings will be back at the ISC II Tournament of Champions for the second straight year, having won the ISC II berth from the Red Rock Tournament this past weekend in St. George, Utah. The Lumberkings were the top finishing ISC II team in the tournament, including a win over the Consolation Bracket champions, Castlewood II, from Utah, and took ISC World #15 ranked Portland De Marini to extra innings, before dropping a tough one run game.

The Lumberkings were the first team from California to compete in the ISC II Tournament of Champions, and did well, qualifying for the playoff round, and winning their first playoff game, before falling in extra innings to a then-unbeaten Kitchener team.

The Lumberkings have improved their roster for 2007, adding pitcher Mike Egerdeen, who pitched well in last year’s ISC II for JRW of Yakima Washington, surrendering but one earned run in the tournament, as well as young Anthony Martinez, who pitched his 23-and-under team to the National title last summer. Hard throwing right hander Darren Strang, from British Columbia will be back with the Lumberkings for his second season.
