Local pitcher throws dominant game in WBSC Men's Softball World Cup

Brussels native Ty Sebastian threw a 5 inning no hitter as Canada waltzed past South Africa 11-0 on November 27 in New Zealand. The impressive performance by Sebastian, who is also a local hockey referee, included 12 strikeouts as he mowed down every batter he faced en route to the no-no. Canada knocked in 11 runs on 9 hits in a complete performance for the national team. Sebastian only walked 2 batters the whole outing. Mitchell's Tyler Pauli is also representing Canada at the tournament.
