    Baseball History Sought

    The Groves Baseball program, coached by Shawn Morrison, is creating a comprehensive history of the baseball team from its inception.  He is missing rosters for the 1973, 1974 and 1976 baseball teams.  Former players or other Groves alumni who may have this information are asked to contact Coach Morrison at SMorrison@birmingham.k12.mi.us or drop off copies at the front desk at Groves.
