“Grand Haven Team Part of League Sanctioned and Supported By Major League Baseball”
Grand Haven has a new baseball team! The Grand River Loggers features college baseball players from Division 1 & 2 Universities around the country. The Loggers will begin their inaugural season as part of the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League. The Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League (GLSCL) will have 15 teams in three divisions. The Loggers will compete in the Northern Division.
Other teams in the Northern Division of the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League will be the Muskegon Clippers, the Tecumseh, Ontario, Green Giants, the Irish Hills Leprechauns from Adrian, Michigan, and the Lake Erie Monarchs out of Flat Rock, Michigan
The GLSCL is sanctioned and supported by Major League Baseball and markets their league as, “future Major League Baseball stars right in your backyard”.
“Joining the GLSCL, a very prestigious and long-standing baseball league, with a very high level of play will provide baseball fans with another great entertainment option”, said Head of Baseball Operations, Ben Davis. “The support of the league and the affiliation with Major League Baseball will enhance the product on and off the field.”
The Grand River Loggers will play their home games during the inaugural season at Grand Haven High School and the Historic Marsh Field in Muskegon with the goal of being full time partners with the City of Grand Haven for the 2018 season!
“The Grand River Loggers are an ideal fit. The new team will add excitement and enthusiasm to baseball culture in Grand Haven, said Pat McGinnis, City Manager, Grand Haven. “City Hall is looking for ways to make this a permanent fixture in Grand Haven. 2017 is looking to be a great year already! “
The Loggers are busy completing their roster and have already signed several players to this year’s roster. They include players from Universities like Purdue, Valparaiso, Villanova and Western Michigan. The players come from all over the country including Michigan, Florida, California, New York, South Carolina and Pennsylvania. The Loggers will carry a 25 man roster.
The Grand River Loggers, formerly called the Holland Millers, were members of the Michigan Summer Collegiate League for the past three years and earned a spot at the National Amateur Baseball Federation World Series last year.
In addition to a competitive team, the Loggers games will feature full food and beverage concessions, team gear and merchandise sales, special promotional nights, on field games between innings, music and crowd interaction activities throughout the game.
To help accommodate the players coming in from out of state, the Loggers are looking for Host Families willing to host a player during the summer season. Each host family would commit to providing a bedroom, access to a washer and dryer and daily meals. The Loggers will assist the host family with a monthly stipend to help offset expenses. Host families are not required to provide transportation.
The inaugural 2017 season for the Loggers kicks off on Tuesday, June 6th at 7:05pm at Historic Marsh Field in Muskegon, Michigan against the Muskegon Clippers.
Game tickets are $5 for adults; $3 for Senior Citizens, $3 for students; $3 for children 5-12. Children under 5 are free. Season ticket and group sales packages are also available.
