Welcome to the home of the
GROSSE POINTE REDBIRDS
The Grosse Pointe 'Redbirds' Baseball Organization
celebrates our 21st 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 alumni 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

Passing of Dave Bergman
It is with great sadness that we share the news that Dave Bergman lost his brave battle with
cancer on February 2, 2015. Though we knew this day would come, we can never be prepared for
the great loss and grief we will feel.
Dave was a wonderful role model, remarkable man and a true inspiration to all. Though he
will be deeply missed, he will never be forgotten.
The Bergman family has asked that memorial contributions be directed to our GP Redbirds
website, here. Money collected will go specifically to Bile Duct Cancer Research, the Joe
Niekro Foundation and the GP Redbirds.
If you wish to include a note, I will make sure that the family receives it. Thank you for
