It also means that some of our local Tillsonburg Men’s Slo-Pitch League players can take part in the great slo-pitch circuits.

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