A Tip of the Hat
To the Lake County Parks for their continued support of the Deep River Grinders.  The Grinders are able to connect the past with the current in an engaging and welcoming manner.  Visiting teams marvel at the crowd of fans drawn to Grinder Field.  It is a “family”.  Thank you Grinder Cranks.  You are truly the best!
