Saginaw, MI – The International Softball Congress is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring three boys fastpitch softball championship tournaments on the weekend of July 21-23 in Saginaw, Michigan.

The ISC Developmental Championship Tournaments in the U14, U16 and U18 age groups marks a return for the ISC in sponsoring stand-alone youth events separate from the annual ISC World Tournament.

“With the outstanding boy’s fastpitch programs in Munger and Vasser, as well as the history of successful ISC developmental tournaments in Frankenmuth, this is the ideal area to hold these tournaments,” says ISC Executive Director Larry Fisher.

Saginaw is 10-15 minutes from Frankenmuth and was the host of the 1981 ISC World Tournament.

“We’ve selected this weekend because there’s minimal conflict with any of the Ontario provincial events in these age groups, so we’d really like to see Ontario teams come and compete for an ISC championship,” added Fisher.

More information will be forthcoming as the committee of Tom Stasik, Del Benson, Don Petro and Pete Bouvy work out the details in the coming weeks.

The ISC is also planning a U21 Championship as part of the 2017 ISC World Tournament being held in Grand Rapids, MI., August 12-19.

    “South Bend is quickly becoming a key destination for premier softball sporting events,” said South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. “We’re honored the ISC chose to host their 2015 World Tournament here, and look forward to highlighting why we’re a top-notch location.”

    This will mark the first time that South Bend will host the ISC World Tournament, with several previous national and international events having been played at the Belleville Sports Complex, which features five diamonds, a full concession stand, bleachers, restrooms, and an operations building.

    “The ISC brings out the very best in competition,” St. Clair continued, “and sports fans will truly get the opportunity to see the best softball players in the world play for the title of the ISC World Champion. We’re excited and can’t wait for the summer of 2015.”

    “Anytime we get the opportunity to add an international tournament and championship to our sports event resume it says a lot about our destination. We are grateful to partner with South Bend Parks to host this great ISC event,” said Rob DeCleene, Executive Director, South Bend/Mishawaka Convention and Visitors Bureau.
