For the past two summers, the city of Highland has played host to the Frontier Greys professional baseball team. The Greys were a travel team and played all of their games on the road. Spring training and in-season workouts were held at Glik Park and the Korte Rec Center in Highland. The Greys will not be a part of the Frontier League in 2016.
The players from this team stayed in Highland and became a fabric of the community and the host families with which they lived. The feedback that we received from many people in Highland was very positive. The players themselves loved the city and the people.
We at the Frontier League want to take this opportunity to thank everyone in Highland and the surrounding communities that made this endeavor possible. We thank the host families, the Highland Parks and Recreation Department, the city of Highland, the Highland Chamber of Commerce, the Highland Optimists Club, the Highland News Leader, Terra Properties, Mazzio’s Pizza, E.L. Flanagan’s, Homer Rusteberg, HIS KIDS, Back-2-Back Baseball and Softball Training, and everyone that made the Greys feel at home. This could not have been possible without everyone’s assistance.
As we move forward, the city of Highland and its residents will forever be a member of the Frontier League family. Again, we thank you personally and professionally. Highland truly is a great city.
