In a normal year the Grand Forks International Invitational Baseball Tournament would be just beginning sometime around now. But due to concerns about COVID large gatherings like that are not allowed so the GFI won’t be happening this year. And back in 2018 it was cancelled because of the flood. That’s 2 years in the past 10 that it could not take place.
A few years back I helped live cast the games . . . those videos are still out there in the cloud. That means they can be watched any time. Like now . . . just as if the GFI was really happening.
Now I know that a video isn’t the same as really being there – we all wish we could be there in person but we know that cannot happen at this time.
So I’m going to try presenting each day’s games as if that day had just been played. I’ve got games from 2014 and 2015. The first year we were just learning so a lot of it is fairly amateurish . . . but it is what it is. And it’s Free for you to watch.
A minor warning – this was very early days for streaming video (meaning our system was primitive and not very professional) and we were using a free service, Hangouts On Air, from Google to make this happen.
DAY 1 – Games from June 25, 2014
That is all for June 25 – Day 1 of the 2014 GFI
