    The first 4 players listed of the Aurora Illinois Sealmasters were in the 66 and 68 ISF World Series, not 1979. The first time that a Bational All Star Team was selected to represent the USA was when Men’s (and Women’s) fastpitch were added to the Pan American Games. The 4 pitchers for Team USA in 1979 were: Ty Stofflet; Gene Green; Al Lewis; and a very young David Scott. Prior to 79, in the first 4 ISF World Series, the USA was represented by the previous years ASA Major Champions(along with 3 pick-up players. 66 & 68 was the Aurora (IL) Sealmasters, 72 was Cedar Rapids (IA) Welty Way, 76 was Reading (PA) Sunners.
