While there won't be a Grand Forks International baseball tournament this year

While the 2013 Grand Forks International baseball tournament (GFI) was cancelled, the organizing committee has confirmed it will be back in 2014.

“After taking a brief hiatus for the 2013 season, the board of directors of the (GFI) is pleased to announce the 2014 tournament dates as follows: starting Wednesday, June 25 through June 30 inclusive. The GFI will be in full swing at James Donaldson Park,” the board said in a release issued today.

The board announced that the tournament wouldn’t take place this year citing retirement of key volunteers and the withdrawal of two teams for Canadian Nationals.

However GFI Baseball Society President Bud Alcock told the Grand Forks Gazette in March that the board would work hard to ensure a 2014 return.

“Next year we’ll come back just as strong,” Alcock said. “We’re looking forward to 2014, we’re going to be out canvassing for volunteers again, we’re working really hard in bringing some top-quality, international ball into Grand Forks again.”
