SALT LAKE CITY – One of Utah’s all-time best pitchers was Neal Chadwick who pitched for Page Brake of Salt Lake City for many years including 1995 in the ISC World Tournament in Sioux City, Iowa.

The big right-hander had a 1-1 record in 15 1/3 innings, while allowing 11 hits, 4 earned runs, 3 walks. He also struck out 20 batters from Grafton, WV; Class Walls, Whiteford, MD; and H.I.S. of Houston.

SIOUX CITY, IOWA – In the 1995 ISC World Tournament at Diamonds of Champions in Sioux City, Iowa, Larry Miller Toyota of Salt Lake City and the Farm Tavern of Madison, Wisc. met in the semi-finals with Larry Miller besting Rod Peterson’s club, 3-1, to advance to the winner’s bracket final of the 48-team double elimination tournament.

Larry Miller then beat the hometown Gateway 2000 Soos, 5-2, to move into the championship game undefeated at 5-0.

But as many of you know, Darren Zack and the Toronto Gators came charging back through the losers bracket to defeat Larry Miller twice, 8-0, and 3-0, with Zack getting both wins, pushing his record-setting pitching totals to 10-0 (along with setting several other pitching records).

SIOUX CITY, IOWA – There’s not a sane man that would have wagered that the Toronto, Ontario Gators would win the 1995 ISC World Tournament Championship after dropping their first game of the 48-team tournament, held Aug. 11-20, at Diamonds of Champions in Sioux City.

A 3-2 loss to the South Surrey BC Ravens and pitcher Dean Holoien, who held the Gators to five hits.

But then again, betting against pitcher Darren Zack can be a risky proposition. Zack proved the naysayers wrong in hurling his ball club to the title over the 10-day event. And what a performance he turned in. One that many fastpitch experts say will never be topped.
