2012 Legends of Fastball Classic Enhances the Field - June 21-24, 2012

February 24, 2012

Kitchener, ON

The 2012 Legends of Fastball Classic is gearing up for another outstanding weekend of fastball scheduled to kick off on Thursday June 21, at Peter Hallman Ball Yard, Kitchener, Ontario. Legends has grown into one of the premier softball events in North American since its inception in Woodstock in 2004; this year’s edition will be no exception.
The Legends concept is built on showcasing the best of yesterday, today and tomorrow in major men’s fastball, and this year will add a 4 team master’s division to its 10 team major men’s and 4 team junior men’s divisional set up. The men’s and junior division will kick off with games on Thursday June 21 while the master’s will jump into action on Friday June 22.
Legends has always attracted the best players and teams in the game and the lineup thus far is a who’s who of the top club teams in the game today . Pull up a lawn chair or dust off a bench to watch two time ISC World Champion Jarvis Travelers,  ISC finalists New York Gremlins, AAU Champion Hill United Chiefs, ISC World Tournament hosts Midland Explorers, former ISC II champions Port Elgin Blue Devils and Kitchener Cubs, all of these confirmed. Not good enough yet ? How about the New Zealand Black Sox making a return trip to Kitchener to defend their Legends crown won in last year’s final against the World Champs from Jarvis. The Black Sox will also be touring the area and bringing their National team to a number of communities throughout southern Ontario before and after the Legends weekend. The rest of the field will be announced in the weeks to come but rest assured there are a lot of teams scrambling to be a part of this world class event.
The Junior division was a tremendous addition to the Legends in 2011 and we are bringing back 4 more great prospect teams this year. Teams in the junior division will all be announced in the near future as well.
The Master’s division should be a treat for a lot of long time fastball fans and will be highlighted by the return to the diamond of the 1993 and 1995 ISC World Champion Toronto Gators. Yes, Jack is Back ! The entire Gators juggernaut of the 1990’s is “coming out of the swamp” to prepare for a run at the World Master’s Games softball title, schedule for Torino Italy in 2013. The Gators will face some tough opposition their first time out so stay tuned for the rest of the lineup of teams in the near future.
Sounds like a great weekend and this is just the warm-up. Make your plans now and circle your calendars for JUNE 21 TO JUNE 24, be a part of Canada’s greatest softball event in its premier facility, PETER HALLMAN BALL YARD, KITCHENER, ONTARIO.
