Dellin Betances AN AMERICAN LEAGUE ALL-STAR IN HIS 1ST 4 YEARS!
Dellin (2006 Graduate) on the mound for GSC during his senior year!
Dellin looking very serious!
Now that Dellin's arbitration case is complete, now he can just concentrate on what he does best and that is mowing down hitters with strikeout after strikeouts! We are rooting for Dellin to have another big year and hopefully get selected to the All-Star team for the 4th straight year! Keep grinding big fella!
Ernesto "BJ" Lopez gets an RBI single yesterday vs. the St. Louis Cardinals!
On Tuesday, March 27th, 2017 was a very special day for our Grand Street Campus High School Program!
Ernesto Lopez aka BJ got his first MLB hit yesterday for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Eventhough it was just an
exhibition game, it still was an amazing feat for our beloved catcher who graduated in 2012. Congratulations BJ!
Keep grinding! We are so proud of you!
Williams Jerez is trying to make it onto the Boston Red Sox Roster!
Williams Jerez did not make it as a hitter when he was originally taken in the 2nd round of the MLB 2011 Draft as an
outfielder. So many players that were originally selected as hitters but made it as a pitcher are as follows: Zach Greinke, Jacob DeGrom, Ervin Santana, Troy Percival, and more. The list is impressive! Add Williams Jerez to that list! He is currently on the 40 man roster of the Boston Red Sox and is vying for a middle relief job! He has had 2 straight respectable years in the Red Sox's Triple A minor league team. One big thing that is in Williams favor is that he is a hard throwing left hander reliever. LH relievers are a hot commodity these days because they are no where to be found. We wish Williams alot of success and we are keeping our fingers crossed that he makes the MLB team after this Grapefruit League comes to an end! Keep Grinding Willie!
OUR FATHER & GODFATHER OF OUR GSC TEAM IS ALWAYS WATCHING FROM HEAVEN!
A TRIBUTE TO THE MAYOR OF WILLIAMSBURG, OUR DAD & GODFATHER OF THE GRAND ST CAMPUS BASEBALL FAMILY!
GSC has a bigger heart than any other team!
PLAY HARD OR GO HOME!
GSC IS ALL HEART!
GSC BELIEVES IT CAN DO IT AGAIN!
CHAMPIONS FOR LIFE!

GRAND ST CAMPUS, FORMERLY KNOWN AS EASTERN DISTRICT HS, WAS CREATED IN 1998. IT IS THE FIRST TIME THIS WILLIAMSBURG COMMUNITY HAS EXPERIENCED A BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP! WE HAVE COME CLOSE ALMOST EVERY YEAR SINCE 2002. WE HAVE HAD SOME GREAT TALENTED TEAMS BUT WE ALWAYS SOMEHOW FELL SHORT. SOMEHOW, I AM LED TO BELIEVE THAT GOD GAVE US EVEN MORE OF AN INCENTIVE TO WIN BECAUSE WE WERE DEDICATED TO WIN FOR OUR DAD, WHO WAS STRUGGLING WITH HIS FIGHT AGAINST TWO CANCERS AND A 7 YEAR OLD NAMED QUINTON WARD, WHO PLAYS ON MY LITTLE LEAGUE TEAM, WHO WAS DIAGNOSED WITH STAGE 3 CANCER 2 MONTHS AGO AND UNDERGOES CHEMOTHERAPY AS WELL AS OUR DAD, EUDALIO MARTINEZ. WE MANAGED TO WIN THIS GAME'S PITCHING DUEL WITH GOOD DEFENSE & CLUTCH HITTING. IT IS NOW OFFICIAL, WE ARE CHAMPIONS! WE FINISHED THE YEAR WITH A RECORD BREAKING 41ST WIN OF THE SEASON. LAST YEAR, WE BROKE THE PREVIOUS RECORD WITH 40 WINS. WE ALSO HAD OTHER RECORDS TO BE PROUD OF: 2 OF OUR PLAYERS WON THE WINGATE AWARD (CONSIDERED THE HEISMAN TROPHY IN PSAL) IN BACK TO BACK YEARS (WILLIAMS JEREZ 2011 & ERNESTO LOPEZ 2012), WE ALSO BECAME THE FIRST BROOKLYN HIGH SCHOOL TO WIN THE PRESTIGIOUS AND BIGGEST NORTHEAST TOURNAMENT KNOWN AS THE JAMES MONROE HS BASEBALL SPRING TOURNAMENT IN 42 YEARS AND WON IT IN BACK TO BACK YEARS (2011 & 2012), AND WE HAD PLAYERS SELECTED IN THE MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL DRAFT IN BACK TO BACK YEARS (WILLIAMS JEREZ 2011 2ND RD W/ BOSTON RED SOX & JOSE CUAS 40TH RD W/ TORONTO BLUE JAYS), AND ERNESTO LOPEZ SIGNED AS A FREE AGENT WITH THE ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS. WE CAME CLOSE IN 2011 WHEN WE LOST IN THE SEMI-FINALS IN 2011 BUT WE WON THE NYC HS PSAL CHAMPIONSHIP IN 2012! THIS EXCEPTIONAL GROUP OF GENTLEMEN WERE TRULY A DYNASTY! THEY WILL MAKE US PROUD AS THEY BEGIN THEIR COLLEGE BASEBALL CAREERS! GOOD LUCK GENTLEMEN!
TAKE A LOOK AT OUR 1ST EVER NEW YORK CITY H.S. BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP RING! ALRIGHT!
OUR SCHOOL'S FIRST EVER NYC HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP RING CEREMONY WAS HELD ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 AT THE GRAND STREET CAMPUS HS AUDITORIUM BEGINNING AT 5PM.
WE INVITED ALL ALUMNI (FROM BOTH THE EASTERN DISTRICT HS & GRAND STREET CAMPUS), FAMILY, AND FRIENDS TO JOIN US IN THIS VERY SPECIAL HISTORIC MOMENT FOR OUR LEGENDARY BASEBALL PROGRAM.
THIS EVENT WOULD NOT HAD BEEN POSSIBLE IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE MANY ALUMNI THAT STEPPED UP AND PAID FOR OUR PLAYERS' RINGS. OUR PLAYERS' WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PAY FOR THEIR $200 CHAMPIONSHIP RING DUE TO FINANCIAL CONSTRAINTS.
BUT NONE THE LESS, WE MADE IT HAPPEN AND WE CELEBRATED!!!!!!!
