10th Annual World Series of Fastball

Orillia, Ontario, Canada

July 13, 14, 15, 2007


With less than 80 hours to go until the first pitch will be thrownout at the longest continuously operating major men’s tournament in Canada, the excitement is starting to build in Orillia.  The 10thAnnual edition of the World Series of Fastball will kick off at 5:00 PM on Friday, July 13 at Kitchener Park, with the host Orillia taking on Jarvis and Kitchener competing against Vancouver.   This year brings the new twist of featuring a Canadian division (with the top 5 ranked Canadians teams in ISC rankings) and an American division (that will feature 3 of the top 5 ranked teams in the ISC).  For anyone that has not yet made the trip to Orillia, Kitchener Park is located right on the shores of Lake Simcoe.


All the final planning is being completed and starting first thing Wednesday morning, an army of volunteers will move into the park to start the huge job of transforming the park into the site of one of the top annual major men’s invitational tournaments.  The volunteers have theirwork cut out for them as they start to install the more than 4,000 feet of temporary fencing, groom the fields to the caliber required, install all the  tents and trailers that are  will be needed, plus everything else that needs to be set up.  Once the games actually start another crew of volunteers makes sure everything runs smooth throughout the weekend so that the fans and players have an enjoyable and safe time in Orillia.


This year, two new local organizations have joined the tournament to help out.  The Ramara Youth Fastball League and Information Orillia will be on hand throughout the extended weekend helping out in all kinds of ways.  The two groups will also be operating a silent auction in the merchandise tent throughout the weekend with some really great prizes. Please make sure to drop in and make your bids on some of the items. Also, the Orillia & District Fastball League will once again be operating the large beer tent down the 3rd base line of the main diamond.  This year, Labatt’s breweries have joined the tournamentand we will have a cold supply of their products available throughout the entire weekend.
