He is his school MVP. Fred was a member of the USA team and participated in the Pan Pacific Games in Australia. He was recruited by 174 colleges and scouted by several major league teams.

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.
