Phil Boyer, Shane Newson and Jason Vormittag have played fastball together since 1984, winning five regional championships, three provincial championships and a silver medal at the Canadian Midget Fastball Championship in 1992.
Their greatest fastball moment came in 1992 when they tried out for, and made the Canadian junior men's team.
The trio were members of the Canadian team, which travelled to New Zealand for the 1993 World Junior Fastball Championship. Boyer was in left field, Newson played catcher and left field, and team captain Vormittag was at first base for the Canadian team that went 9 -3 in the preliminary round, and then advanced to the finals by beating Japan 3 -1. In the finals, Canada beat New Zealand 4 -3 in extra innings to take the World Championship and bring home the gold medal.
Phil, Shane and Jason remain active in fastball, and continue to play at a competitive level.
