Coached by Bill Grgas, the Thunderbolts feature players Justin Grgas, Edward Borman, Stephen Carcione, Russel Deutsch, Robert Fielder, Ryan Furlong, Evan Kaston, Matthew Mahler, Robery O’Boyle, Joshua Price, Jonathan Sirica and Joseph Sirica.

Every year, 700 teams from all over the country compete in the tournaments.

All players and coaches will stay in the baseball village, which is similar to an Olympic Village. The opening ceremony and family barbecue will be Saturday, July 5, with a procession of athletes wearing their Cooperstown uniforms.

The week includes a skills competition with events such as the Golden Arm, Roadrunner, Around the Horn and King of Swat.

The Thunderbolts are scheduled to play eight games. Playoffs are to be held Thursday, July 10, along with closing ceremonies. Players will receive their rings and be inducted into the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame. The championship game will follow after the rings ceremony.

All the parents, coaches and players of the Thunderbolts are looking forward to being a part of an incredible experience.
