“That was a full day,” said Mike Barbera, President of DC Grays Baseball. “Will got to see the Grays win a big game on the field, and also the big impact we are having in the community with DC Grays RBI. I think he got a real sense for what we are all about.”
Along with the Grays of the Ripken League, the book also features teams from the Cape Cod League, the Northwoods League, the Alaska Collegiate League, the New England Collegiate Baseball League, the California Collegiate League, the Coastal Plains League.
The DC Grays are the only summer college baseball team that also partners with Major League Baseball on its landmark Reviving Baseball in the Inner-city (RBI) program. The Grays have operated DC Grays RBI since 2016 and now serve over 250 kids each summer with house baseball and softball leagues, as well as three travel teams that represent DC in regional tournaments. In 2019 the Grays were recognized in the Congressional Record for their DC Grays RBI program and their other community initiatives.
