Battery trained Andy Parrino called to major league

Andy Parrino called up to San Diego Padres

Battery alum and instructor Andy Parrino received the call from the San Diego Padres late on Wednesday, August 24.

Andy becomes the first non-pitcher from the greater Rochester area  to make it to the big leagues in the last 65 years. 

Although several Battery trained players have made it to the minor leagues, Andy is the first one to make it to the majors.

As a small family owned and run business, we are proud to contribute to make reality the dreams of thousands of young people.

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.
