The Battery Launched its 25th Annual Baseball Academy

The Battery 25th Anniversary

The Battery launched its 25th annual Baseball Academy this past Saturday October 30.

On hand to celebrate this milestone with the youngest students of the 2010-11 Academy were two members of the first academy held 25 years ago, and a few others who participated in the early academies.  They spoke to the children about their own experiences and what they are doing now. They all stressed the importance of academics, hard work and perseverance.

County Legislator Steve Tucciarello presented a proclamation to The Battery owners for reaching a milestone and wished them continued success.

Also present were several parents of former academy students who are no longer in the Rochester area.

We are proud of The Battery students who through the years have signed with Division 1 colleges and universities; proud of those who signed professional contracts , and proud to have  a Battery-trained student in the major leagues.

We are proud of the lives we have touched and the friends we have made.
