Welcome to the GROSSE POINTE REDBIRDS home page!

The Grosse Pointe 'Redbirds' Baseball Organization, which celebrates our 20th year of enhancing and developing the lives of young men, while teaching the lessons of life that come from playing baseball. The Redbirds, led by former Detroit Tiger and 1984 World Champion Dave Bergman, is committed to perpetuating a love for the game. The organization provides exposure to top players from the Grosse Pointes and surrounding areas who want to develop their baseball skills by competing at the highest level. We currently have 4 alumnus playing in the professional ranks and over 80 players who have gone on to compete at the college level. GPBO stresses academic excellence, high moral standards, discipline, respect, concern for others and a winning attitude in the development of their Redbird ballplayers.

"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field - this game - is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and could be again."
