Tin Cup Returns, Resumes Winning Ways

RICE LAKE, Wisc. – Tin Cup Tornado returned after a year hiatus, picking up where it left off by capturing the championship of the 40th edition of the Aquafest Men’s Fastpitch Invitational Tournament held at Tate Park in Rice Lake June 8-10. 12 teams took part in this year’s event.

The St. Paul club, managed by first baseman Dave Marchio, had claimed the crown in 2015 and 2016 before having to withdraw in 2017 due to a scheduling conflict. Marchio has competed in numerous past tourneys, chiefly for the St. Paul Rice Street Merchants. He is the meet’s all-time home run leader.
