Troy was born and raised in Regina, SK, and still calls Regina his home (White City). Although Troy did not start playing Fastpitch Softball until he was 19 years of age, he was a very quick learner, and fell in love with the sport, which he continues to play today at an elite level.
Troy was a key member on some of the best men’s fastpitch teams to ever come out of Saskatchewan. Troy played at the Sr. A level for many years, spending time with the Regina Merchants, and Saskatoon Aspen Interiors.
During his time with Regina and Saskatoon, Troy attended several ISC World Tournaments. In 2002, as a member of the Regina Merchants, he received a Silver Medal at the Sr. A Canadian Championships, and a Gold Medal in 2004 as a member of the Saskatoon Aspen Interiors Softball Team.
In 2002, Troy played a season in Australia where he was able to hone his skills with elite players on the other side of the globe.
Troy still continue to play competitively with the Bulyea Rustlers and have gone on to win two Western Canadian Championships (2010, 2015).
