Greyland Youth Baseball


Greyland Youth Baseball is a program directed by Mark Anthony Howard or #coachGritz for #GreylandYouthOrganization.

The program gives underprivileged youth the opportunity to participate and acquire the quality skill and instruction normally only afforded to privileged families. By evening the “paying field” GYB enables lower income children the many educational, occupational, and quality of life opportunities the unique sport has to offer. #loveNbaseball

If you or a child would like to participate, volunteer, donate or be a sponsor in this program please email #coachGritz @

The program begins in Feb. but preregistration is encouraged and welcome. Rosters are forming for pony league divisions: pinto/6-8u, mustang/8-10u, and colt/14-16u

Donations: monetary donations are especially needed to fund insurance, league, field rentals, umpire and registration fees.

Also needed are (new or used) balls, gloves, bats, youth size cleats, WhiteSox hats, non perishable snacks and any other baseball gear would be appreciated.

My opinion only concerns the fact that these claims are ten, twenty, and thirty years seasoned and lack a moral message.
