  1. Waht is the fascination with GBC on this web site?
    There are many, many travel ball baseball teams in this area yet this web site only makes regular posts about one group – GBC.
    Am i missing the connection?

  2. They send us well organized detailed information and we print it. It’s as simple as that and we will do that for any team that will send us the info and we commend all the teams that keep us and our readers informed and as always we like to know how the kids are doing.

    We need all the positive sports news that we can find and we have and will continue to print it. We just need more teams to send the results to us.

    Thanks GBC and we would like to hear from the rest of you.
