2023 Grand Forks International Tournament Success.

The Angels would travel to the historic Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament for the first time in decades.  This historic tournament draws top teams from Washington, Alaska, British Columbia and Alberta for a large cash prize. 

In the opening game of the tournament the Angels took on the host team Grand Forks Slag Dusters in front of a sold out crowd under the summer lights and beer garden.  Sean Callegari would throw a complete nine inning game with 10 strikeouts only allowing 1 BB with 2 runs allowed.  Gregg Herman and Tayker Lawrence would provide timely hits as Both Grant Malm and Even McRea went deep with Home Runs into the Grand Forks night.  

Game two the Angels took on the 2022 defending champions Seattle Blackfins.  Multiple hits from Grant Malm, Even McRea and Danny Byoun wouldn't be enough as the Blackfins put up 13 runs winning 13-7. 

In Game 3 of the tournament the Angels would fall 10-0 to the Seattle Studs who only allowed 4 hits

Game 4 the Angels took on the Alaska Goldpanners who have the most wins in tournament history.  Sean Callegari would top his historic game throwing a complete game striking out 11 only allowing 5 hits allowing 2 runs. Matt Clay led the way with 4 hits as the Angels won a huge game to get them into the money round.

The quarter finals would be a rematch of the Goldpanners and Angels. This time the Goldpanners would come out swinging, scoring 7 runs through 5 innings. The Angels would punch back scoring 7 of their own with Enrique Sauceda and Even Mcrea leading with 3 hits each. The firepower of the Goldpanners was too much to handle as they would go on to score 6 more runs in the 7th and 8th inning. The angels would have no answer losing 15-7 

The Angels would place 5th in the tournament to win them their first cash prize at the Grand Forks International.
