Geoff Trasuk’s love of baseball/fastball began at an early age. During his late teens, Geoff played for the Cornwall Cubs where he was named MVP which led to a spot on the Brockville Bunnies to bolster their pitching staff at the Connie Mack Tournament in New Jersey.
In 1979, he played and pitched for the Waterloo Tigers of the Inter County Major Baseball League.
After his baseball stops, Geoff returned to Cornwall and joined the Fifth Wheel team in time for the 1982 fastball season. His power earned him starting spots on several tournament teams.
In 1988, at the famed Ausable Forks tournament in upstate New York, Geoff hit a pair of 3 run home runs in leading Laframboise Mechanical to victory.
He was one of three players on that team to be named a tournament All-Star.
Later that year, Geoff hit the championship winning home run to lead Moviola Café to the John Denneny Fastball League championship.
He was the first ever winner of the Ken Payne Memorial Award for Fastball at the Cornwall Lions Club Sports Awards Dinner.
Geoff then spent the next four years patrolling the outfield for Crate Ideas and continuing to hit clutch home runs in game winning situations.
