Twenty-one - 21 - Wrap Up
Thanks to all the teams who traveled to Freeport and nearby fields to participate
in the 21st Freeport International Baseball Invitational, July 20 – 25, 2015. We had
some new teams this year, a good and positive thing. Puerto Rico was back for the
first time in a few years – always a great team and a fan favorite. The weather was
so cooperative, best we’ve had in years.
We appreciate all the helpers, those who toiled at the fields each day, raking,
dragging, putting lines down…those who worked the backstop, merchandise and
concession stands, the umpires, the coaches who make the commitment to play and
make sure their teams are ready to play and knew the theme – “for the love of the
game”, the parents who made sure the uniforms were clean and their sons were up
and ready to go. There is no way the event could go on without the help of all of
Please check our web page from time to time for new developments and for the
dates of the 2016 event – which should be announced this fall. Puerto Rico hopes
to return. Rumor has it that France, New Zealand and Ireland are working at
sending a team in 2016. Wouldn’t this be a real home run!!
