Old-fashioned wood-bat baseball and a family environment can be expected this summer as the Greeley Grays open their season. Grays manager, Chris Waters, says some exciting changes have occurred since last season, and the community can expect a thrilling season as a result. The Grays league has expanded to include seven teams, including two teams from Denver and another team from Fort Collins. This expansion, and the recent acceptance of the league into the National Baseball Congress, ensures this season will be more competitive for the players and more exciting for the fans.
The Grays have been locally owned for the last two years, and the club continues to focus on the importance of local ownership and local talent. This year, the roster includes two UNC players and numerous Colorado residents. Waters said, “I want to continue recruiting players from the Front Range so I can tell local little leaguers that they can play for the Grays in the future.” Ticket prices for game admission remain at $5 for adults, $3 for kids, and children five and under are free, so plan a family day at the ballpark this summer supporting your Greeley Grays.
