GLEN ROCK BASEBALL & SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION
History of the GRBSA
The GRBSA first began in 1955 with a single baseball league comprised of six teams. Thirteen years later in 1968 the organization was incorporated, having 5 trustees. Today the GRBSA has 7 officers and 10 members-at-large for a total of 17 voting members.
Through the years, the GRBSA has continued to grow. In 1970, the softball program was added; in 2002 the PeeWee Baseball league was separated into the 1st grade and 2nd grade leagues, and night games for the Senior league were scheduled under the lights at the Upper Faber field. In 2004, the softball program created the “TeeWee” league by combining Kindergarten and 1st graders. In fact, the GRBSA Tee Ball and TeeWee leagues are the most popular of the programs! Today, the Tee Wee Program is split into two leagues. Tee Wee K and Tee Wee 1st.
Today the GRBSA is comprised of 11 Recreational programs with 6 baseball leagues and 5 softball leagues, with enrollment over 750 children, 5 through 14 years of age.
In addition, the GRSBA sponsors Travel programs in the Spring, Summer and Fall. The Travel Programs are much more competitive, in which GRBSA teams compete against teams from other towns. The GRBSA Travel programs support teams in age categories from 8 to 17 years of age.
In 2013, the name of the organization was officially changed to the Glen Rock Baseball & Softball Association, or GRBSA.
