Snappers take ISC II berth into 2008 ISC World Tournament

Editor’s Note: There are two berths into the 2008 ISC World Tournament that were made available for ISC II teams. The Snappers, tied for 3rd in the 2007 ToC, have stepped up and taken advantage of one of those berths. On behalf of the ISC II program, we wish them the best of luck in WT and have no doubt they will prove to be a formidable opposition to whomever they play.

Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON

Fastball Community,

It has been 27 years since a team from the Niagara region attended the prestigious ISC World Tournament. The 1981 Niagara Motors squad, playing out of St. Catharines, ON was the last team to attend the World Tournament, held that year in Saginaw, MI. In 2008 the region will once again be represented as the Niagara Snappers are honoured to announce that they have accepted an invitation to compete in the 2008 ISC World Tournament held in Kimberly, WI from Aug 10-18. When the Snappers take the field this upcoming May it will be the start of the teams 10th season and no better way to celebrate this milestone than a trip to the pinnacle event of fastball. While the roster is still undergoing a few tweaks it is already evident that this years version will have a solid core of veteran leadership possessing ISC level experience. We hope to announce our complete roster in the new year.

The first ever tournament the Snappers competed in was held in the beautiful City of Woodstock, ON. It was the May long weekend event and it is somewhat ironic that the team will be kicking off their 10th season back at the place known as the “Friendly City” and where the teams tournament experiences all began. Niagara is thrilled to announce that they have been accepted into the Woodstock Legends Tournament being held May 30-June 1. The Snappers feel privileged to be given the opportunity to compete at a world class event like Legends. We are still in the process of hammering out the remaining tournament and league schedules so check back to Al’s or visit the Snappers new look website for the latest news surrounding the team and the upcoming Snapper Shootout. Take care.
