Idaho Warriors replace Cali Showcase team at GFI

With the Grand Forks International (GFI) baseball tournament set to take place this coming Wednesday (Aug. 31), the Cali Showcase baseball team has withdrawn from the tournament.

With the Grand Forks International (GFI) baseball tournament set to begin today (Aug. 31), tournament officials announced that one of the teams has dropped out.

According to a press release, the Cali Showcase baseball team has withdrawn from this year’s tourney “due to circumstances that are beyond the control of the organizing committee” and will be replaced by the Idaho Warriors.

Idaho will play in Division 1 and the Victoria Mavericks will move over to take Cali Showcase’s spot in Division 2.

The Cali Showcase team was set to open tournament play today against the Thurston County Senators but the schedule has been adjusted to account for the change – the Mavericks will now be Thurston County’s opponent.

Tournament organizers say that the 2011 game schedule that was printed in the Grand Forks Gazette, West Kootenay Advertiser and Boundary Creek Times last week is no longer accurate and recommend going to the GFI’s website for an updated schedule and other tournament-related information.

The tournament will still consist of three divisions – with four teams each – and is set to run from Aug. 31 to Sept. 5.
