MIDLAND, MI – There’s not a manager in U.S. men’s fastpitch that wouldn’t want to fill his roster with home grown talent.
Count Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Power manager Eric Fogel lucky – if you will – for there’s a lot of Pennsylvania guys on his roster. Which for an ISC top-ranked team (Power holds the No. 4 spot) is a rarity in today’s game at the Open level.
Power’s roster of 22 includes some imported talent, like all open teams, but it’s very minimal. Just Thomas Enoka from Wellington, New Zealand; Lucas Mata of Panara, Argentina, and Karl Gollan of Davenport, Iowa, but actually he’s from New Zealand, so I’m including him in the imported variety, too.
