The Toronto Blue Jays will be a Bronze Star Sponsor for the 2012 Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament.

The organizing committee of the Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament (GFI) is pleased to announce that the Toronto Blue Jays will be a Bronze Star Sponsor of the 2012 baseball tournament.

This exciting news will be welcomed by the volunteers, fans and teams.

GFI President Gerry Foster says, “We are extremely proud and excited to have the Toronto Blue Jays, Canada’s MLB team, as a sponsoring partner of this event.”

“As we are with all of our sponsors, the GFI is grateful for their support and commitment. Having the Blue Jays in the lineup will certainly augment the exposure and stature of this week-long Canadian sporting spectacle.”

Preparations are well underway for the 32nd edition of this premier invitational North American baseball event, being held this year from Aug. 29 to Sept. 3 in Grand Forks, B.C.

All games are played at beautiful James Donaldson Park, selected as one of the top 16 ballparks in Canada.

The Lewiston Paffile Truckers defeated Australia’s Geelong Baycats in last year’s championship game.
