The Gateway Grizzlies are members of the Frontier League, a professional, independent baseball organization featuring teams that have no affiliation with major league baseball.  The league was formed in 1993, and it’s the oldest current running independent league.

 

Since the Grizzlies inception in 2001, the organization has sent more than 30 players to MLB affiliates, and 18 players signed since manager Phil Warren took over as skipper in 2007."That is something we take a lot of pride in," Warren said. "The more players that get signed out of here, the more attractive this organization becomes."

Warren, now one of the most successful managers in Frontier League history, preaches team dynamics and intense play. “9 Hard. Every Night.” has become the unofficial team mantra – and is certainly evident in the club’s play.
