The 20th annual Best of the West tournament was featured by KEYTV, the local ABC affiliate in Santa Barbara, California.
The Best of the West is celebrating its 20th anniversary, with some of the best men’s fast-pitch players in the world taking part.
Ten teams from the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Mexico and South America are involved in the longest running open tournament in California. Two berths in the 2010 ISC World Tournament will be awarded to the two top finishers.
Witnessing the tournament is a marvel in hand/eye coordination as some of the pitchers throw about 85 m.p.h., which would be equivalent to 100 m.p.h. in baseball.
