    DAYTON, Ore. – In the winter of 1993, seven dedicated fastpitch men – Pat Bucknell, Jim Williamson, Loren Lathrop, Ronn Kopp, Roger Regez, Milt Waschow and Bill Musolf – met in Chicago with a lofty goal in mind: to create an international organization explicitly for male fastpitch.

    And from that meeting, the North American Fastpitch Association was born.

    In August, NAFA will celebrate an outstanding milestone – a quarter century of striving to make the game better for every man, young man, boy or masters-aged player who wants to play fastpitch the “NAFA way.”

    NAFA Executive Director, Benjie Hedgecock, wants to make this milestone special and one long to be remembered by inviting all teams, players and fans to attend the NAFA World Series in Fargo, No. Dak., Aug. 8-20.

    “We are preparing for our 25th Anniversary of the North American Fastpitch Association in Fargo, North Dakota in August and we are inviting you to come join us,” said Hedgecock.
