Mississauga, ON - Hill United Chiefs will open the 2017 fastball season just as they have the previous three seasons, as the #1 ranked team. The Chiefs are looking to regain the ISC World Tournament Championship after dropping the title last year.

The top 16 is as follows:


1. Six Nations, ON Hill United Chiefs

3. Agoura Hills, CA J&B Bombers

4. Kitchener, ON CanAm Twins

Per a motion passed at the 2016 ISC Board of Directors meeting, only the Top 16 ranked teams will be published and will be used as the basis for seeding at the ISC World Tournament.


The 71st annual ISC World Tournament will be held August 12-19, 2017 at the Art Van Sports Complex in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
