August 13, 2020 Findlay, OH – The International Softball Congress (ISC) is pleased to announce that players Ryan Wolfe and Gerald Muizelaar have been unanimously elected to the ISC Hall of Fame.
Wolfe, originally from Melbourne, ON and now living in London, is an 11-time ISC All-World player, one of only five in ISC history to have that many selections. He is a seven-time ISC World Champion. Wolfe starred for Broken Bow Travellers for many years in the 2000s, winning three championships, before joining the Kitchener Rivershark Twins to win another two at the end of the decade and two more titles with Jarvis Travellers in 2011 and 2012.
When the ballpark conversation turned to who was the best player in the game during the 2000s, Wolfe was at the top of those discussions. He consistently hit for a high average with power – finishing his ISC career with a .331 batting average – was flawless on defense and displayed both speed and smarts on the basepaths.
Nova Scotia native Muizelaar, now resident in Grand Forks, ND, was dominant with blazing speed on his pitches and a devastating change-up. He finished his ISC career with 48 wins, tied for sixth all-time, including an ISC-record 23 in a row in the early 2000s. An eight-time ISC All World player, Muizelaar was named the Most Outstanding Pitcher at three ISC World Tournaments. He won three ISC World Championships with Broken Bow and also pitched with New York Patsy’s and Fargo Kegel Black Knights.
Now the pitching coach with USA Softball, Muizelaar is a featured instructor at ISC tournaments and other events across the continent. Like his long-time teammate Wolfe, Muizelaar was right in the conversation for the best in the world during his prime.
“Ryan is the best centerfielder I’ve seen. He was smart, smooth and effortlessly made all the plays while being a great teammate off and on the field and was a positive influence on everyone he came into contact with,” said Hall of Fame manager Steve Kooser, who managed both Wolfe and Muizelaar at Broken Bow. “Gerald is a smart, tough, fiery competitor and led Bow to several championships. He was always there for us and it was a pleasure to have him on our teams.”
The pair will be inducted into the ISC Hall of Fame at the 2021 Hall of Fame Breakfast and Induction Ceremony in Kitchener, ON as part of the ISC’s 75th Anniversary. Joining them will be Chris Miljavac, Todd Garcia, Scott Standerfer and Jimmy Doyle, as their 2020 induction was delayed.
