The host team the Relics will attempt for the first time to win the tournament underneath the direction of Ike McDonald , after coming close on several occasion .


                        In the house will be Metro Szeryk , hall of famer in fastball who started his illustrious career with the Silver Six back in Sudbury in the early to mid 60’s before leaving for a great second career in semi pro fastball on the eastern coast of the USA for some 30 years .He is a classy very tall gentleman who married a Sudbury gal and is coming back to his roots .You’ll be able to approach without any problem and talk fastball ..


                         Also in the house will be this year’s honorary chairperson , Jim Kirkwood another classy gentleman who won this tournament twice with his teammates back in the 90’s .He is retired from fastball now as mighty fine infielder . At the moment we have 17 teams with more to come .The tournament goes from August 29th to the 31st on Labor Day Weekend at the Rick McDonald Memorial Sports Complex in Azilda a suburb of Greater City of Sudbury .

Here are last year’s winners when it was played in Curve Lake First Nation near Peterborough . In ladies open the Six Nations Storm defeated the Bucktown Ladies twice to win (double knockout tournament ) while in men’s open it was an all Curve Lake affair with the Trappers defeating the Nimkee 5-0 .
