ISC Elects Four to Hall of Fame for 2022 Induction

The International Softball Congress today elected three players to the Hall of Fame along with naming Bob McGowan as the recipient of the Bob Welby Memorial Award for Recognition of Service.

Darren Box, Spruce Grove, AB, was the MVP of the 2001 ISC World Tournament and a three-time World Champion. He was named to the First All World Team three times and to the Second All World Team once. He also led the World Tournament in RBIs in 2002.

Travis Wilson, Tallahasee, FL, originally from Christchurch, NZ, is a member of an elite group of players who have been selected to five First ISC All World Teams. He played in three ISC championship games during his career, finishing with a .363 lifetime batting average with 16 HRs and 42 RBIs in nine World Tournaments.

Rhys Casley, of Wellington, NZ, was named to three First ISC All World Teams during his career. He won two ISC World Championships and played in the ISC Championship game five times in 10 World Tournament appearances. Casley was the leading hitter twice, in 2004 and in 2011.

Bob McGowan, of Freelton, ON, served as an ISC Commissioner and Regional VP for Canada East from 1996-2006 and again from 2019-2021. He was the founder of ISC II, which introduced the ISC to a new division of teams, significantly expanding the ISC's team count in the next two decades. His influence in the ISC continues today due to the foundational work he put in place in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Along with Ryan Wolfe and Gerald Muizelaar, who were elected in 2020, Box, Wilson, Casley and McGowan will be inducted into the ISC Hall of Fame at the 2022 ISC World Tournament in Quad Cities.
