After only one day, there was enough action at the Grand Forks International (GFI) baseball tournament to fill a whole week.
The Lacey Saints won the opening game of the tournament with a 4-3 squeaker over the North West Honkers.
Game two saw an amazing comeback as the North Shore Emeralds fought back from being down 8-1 to win 9-8 in extra innings. The Emeralds scored their second run in the seventh inning to avoid a mercy rule loss.
In the third game, the Castlegar Warriors defeated the Grand Forks Babe Ruth team 2-1 in a five inning minor league game. The game was a fundraiser for the ALS society and saw all money from the gate and the 50/50 donated to ALS.
The final game of the first day saw the fan favourite Trail Orioles silence the West Coast Guns 17-7.
More action today (Thursday) with four games on tap as well as the opening ceremony at 7:30.
The championship final goes Monday at 2:30 p.m.
All games are at James Donaldson Field.
