Legends of Fastball Classic 2010

November 11, 2009

Kitchener, ON


The 7th Annual Legends of Fastball Classic will move to a new date in 2010 and tournament organizers are hoping to expand with a new junior division as well. Legends has traditionally been held the weekend after  Memorial Day but declining major level teams and late start up ofremaining teams has made it difficult to fill the schedule the last coupleyears. After much consideration the Legends weekend will move to June 25, 26 and 27, 2010 with the hope that conflicts in previous years can now be avoided. Peter Hallman Ball Yard in Kitchener will again be the host venue for this event.
 
The format will remain the same with 10 teams in two 5 team divisions. Each team will play a 4 game round robin schedule in their owndivision with the top 3 in each division advancing to the single eliminationplayoff round. The top team in each division will be given a buy in the preliminary playoff round.
 
With so many strong midget and junior aged teams throughout Ontario, organizers arehoping to attract 8 teams to compete in a similar format in the juniordivision. Details have not been nailed down yet in this regard but should becoming forth by the end of the year.
 
Entry fee for the men’s division will be $500 payable to Kitchener Fastball Promotions, c/o Larry Lynch, 206 Moore Avenue, Kitchener Ontario N2H 3S9
 
Any and all interested teams can contact Larry by e-mail at llynch9@rogers.com  or telephone , evenings at 519 579 2903.
 
Legends has been a designated ISC World Tournament qualifyingtournament in resent years. With another World Tournament scheduled in Kitchener in 2011 itmakes great sense to get a feel for the action before the main event.
