Grand Slam Baseball Club would like to thank all of our volunteers and supporters as our year comes to end with a special thanks to E.B. Athletic Board, Shawn Theriault, Gary Obermeir,Jimmy Carusso, Phil Brangiforte, and Robert Lewis Jr. without the help and support of the community and volunteers none of this would be possible… The banquet was a huge success as the league unveiled plans for the future years to come. Grand Slam Baseball Club will begin the new year with East Boston’s first A.A.U. Baseball program. Bringing competitive A.A.U. baseball to the inner city has been a dream to many east bostonians but with the high cost of traveling throughout New England never seemed possible. While most programs average at a cost of $3,000-$6,000 per player. Grand Slam has figured a way to bring the cost down to less than 10% about $300 making this a reality for all. Scholarships and Payment plans will also be available to make sure that this dream is made a reality to all players. The 2012 year will begin in mid January with Try-outs for both A.A.U. Baseball Teams, 16 under and 13 under. More information will be revealed following the holiday season any questions can also be answered by co-owners of Grand Slam Baseball Club Charlie LoGrasso and Gerry DiVenuti. Grand Slam continues to emphasize that all eastie kids prioritize their education while improving their baseball skill. As well as their A.A.U. baseball team Grand Slam will continue with their summer and fall-baseball programs while re-introducing their 18 under,16 under, and 12 under teams again.
