Softball Canada – (Oklahoma City, OK) The Canadian Men’s Slo-Pitch Team is ready to compete at the 2016 Men’s Slo-Pitch Border Battle, which will consist of a series of games in Oklahoma City, OK from July 3-6 leading up to the eighth edition of the Border Battle between Team Canada and Team USA that will take place at 7:30pm CDT on Wednesday, July 6.
 
The event returns to Oklahoma City after Canada hosted it in Kitchener, Ontario in 2014 and it was held in Midland, Michigan last year. A total of six teams will compete in games preceding the annual Border Battle game. In addition to Team Canada and Team USA, other teams competing will be the USA Futures and three club teams – A&A Utility/KV Weld/BHR, Play the Game Sports and OC.
 
At the inaugural Border Battle held in 2009, the United States defeated Canada by a score of 30-23 before Canada evened the series with a thrilling 30-29 victory the following year. However, the United States have won the last five meetings, including a 22-7 win last summer in Midland.
