Zack, Sorenson headline ISF HoF + World Championships every two years

Two items of note that we want to draw your attention to in particular from the ISF Congress in Venezuela.

The first is the election of the legendary Darren Zack to the ISF Hall of Fame. Darren, who will be inducted into Softball Canada’s Hall of Fame in November and will become a member of the ISC Hall of Fame next August, won ISF gold in 1992 and two silver medals in 1996 and 2004.

Congratulations Darren!

Joining Darren will be Mark Sorenson, the former captain of the New Zealand Black Sox. Mark won triple ISF Gold in 1996, 2000 and in 2004 at home in Christchurch.

Congratulations Mark!

Also, we note with interest that the ISF passed a Canadian motion that calls for World Championships to be played every two years in every category, beginning in 2012. The schedule will see Women’s and Junior Men’s in 2012 (even years) and then Men’s and Junior Women’s in 2013 (odd years). With North Shore City, New Zealand being named the host of the 2013 Men’s World Championship, we eagerly look forward to seeing who will be the host in 2015.
