May 1, 2020  –  The ISC will celebrate its 75th Anniversary in 2021. As part of our planning for our 75th Anniversary celebrations, we are polling to take votes on “Team of the Decade” for each of the decades running from the 1950s all the way up to and including the 2010s.

In April, we asked for votes on the Team of the Decade for the 1960s. For the month of May, we are asking fastball fans, players and officials to vote on the Team of the Decade for the 1970s. In future months, voting will be conducted for subsequent decades.

More info on the 1970s can be found at on the Highlights page under the Archives tab.
To place your vote for Team of the Decade for the 1970s, click on the Polling Booth image on the right side of the ISC website home page.
Voting for Team of the Decade for the 1970s will be open throughout May. One vote is permitted per each unique IP address.
The ISC will announce the Teams of the Decades as part of the lead-up to the 75th Annual ISC World Tournament in Kitchener, ON in 2021.

April 13, 2020 Findlay, OH — Following a solid debut in 2020, the ISC will look to build on the success of our Winter-Invitational in January 2021.

As with all sporting events in this current environment, we will  take our cues from health authorities. With that said, we are planning for the second edition of the ISC Winter-Invitational to be held January 28-30, 2021 in Kissimmee, Florida. A go or no-go date will be established later this year.
There will again be separate ISC and Legends divisions. Games will be played Thursday through Saturday with Sunday reserved for travel.

We do expect to have to cap entries at a certain point as there will be limits to the number of games that can be played.
