It also means that some of our local Tillsonburg Men’s Slo-Pitch League players get to participate in the major slo-pitch circuits.

A week ago, some Foldens Machine Works players competed in Men’s C in Super Series and the Pandas team they played for ended up losing in the final. Some ladies from the Tillsoburg league competed for Phoenix and Fireball. Fireball finished with a 2-2 record, unsure of Phoenix’s record. There is also good local talent playing in other divisions.
