Thursday’s Turning Back The Pages: Remembering Brian Paton, one of Canada’s greatest fastpitch players

Woodstock, Ontario, CA – Brian Paton played in 12 consecutive International Softball Congress World Tournaments and was a member of three ISC championship teams – twice with the Toronto, Ontario Gators (1993-95) and with the Smokers of Tampa Bay, Florida (1998).

In 1995, he helped to lead the Toronto Gators in their amazing come-back week to capture the ISC title in Sioux City, Iowa. In so doing, Paton established a new record for hits in a tournament (17) and was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.

Patrolling centre field, he was one the best at stealing what appeared to be “sure-hits” and limiting base runners to singles. He was not simply a member of great teams – those teams enjoyed their successes in no small part as a result of Brian’s leadership – witness his nine “top-four” finishes in ISC world tournaments.

Paton has numerous other notable softball accomplishments, including playing for Team Canada (1985-2002) and helping his country win four Pan-Am gold medals and silver and gold in the International Softball Federation World Championship.

    QUAD CITIES, IA /Il – Riley Beets fouled off pitch after pitch, nine all totaled, before he delivered the game winning hit to push the Kansas City New Age Outlaws to a 2-1 victory in eight innings over the Sight & Sound Wolves of Ft. Frances, Ontario, Canada.

    With the game tied with two out and Bobby Fisher on third base, Beets battled Wolves pitcher Bob Andy before getting the pitch he wanted.

    “He gave me a curve ball over the plate,” said Beets, who was 2 for 4 and scored a run from his number three spot in the lineup. “I hit it right back at him.”
