Roster Player Participants Stories


ROSTER PARTICIPANTS STORIES

Game Day Bunch, Inc. was conceived in 2016. We have spent the 2016 Spring Training Season working on validating our business model and laying the groundwork to establish our partnerships and alliances. Our goal is to conduct a pilot this calendar year in preparation of a full launch for the 2017 Spring Training Season. We will look forward to sharing the stories of roster participants at that time.

     

*No assumption should be made that players/individuals in photos endorse the foundation.
