  • Grant Baseball Academy Takes Home TBS Title

    Youth1.com just posted an article about the Travel Ball Select championship. Grant Baseball Academy won it all and may be named the #1 team...

    Here's a link for anybody that is interested.

    This deserves a bump. The link doesn't seem to work, so I found another article, available here: http://www.youth1.com/index.php/base...8-genius-grant

    I'm very familiar with that successful program and know one of the coaches and many of the kids who've gone through the program, which is based in Oakland, California. It's comprised of primarily inner-city African-American kids of modest means and it's a joy to watch them play at a high level, even when I coached against them. And, one thing they have to overcome, alas, is some blatant racism when going up against some rural, lily-white squads - there are very few black players at top levels of baseball, unfortunately.
    sigpicIt's not whether you fall -- everyone does -- but how you come out of the fall that counts.

      I would have liked to have seen them destroy Phenom if they had gone to NYBC..and play Banditos for the title.
