Grit Clothing Co. Adding Frankfort Baseball Spiritwear for 2021
Frankfort Baseball Families,
To provide you with additional spiritwear options, we've partnered with a local brand called Grit Clothing Company. They are a South Side Chicago clothing brand, created in 2018. They produce locally-inspired clothing and give a portion of their proceeds back to Chicagoland charities. Grit has roots in our town as well, as their founder is now a Frankfort resident. You can read more about them here: About Us – Grit Clothing Co
This year, they are producing a limited edition collection of high-quality hats and sweatshirts created specifically for the Frankfort Baseball program. Grit has designed these items to appeal to both in-house and travel families. Most notably, they will be providing a portion of their proceeds from these sales back to our organization.
Here's a glimpse at some of the items that will be available for sale starting next week. A follow up email with a link to purchase will be sent next week.
Frankfort Baseball has teamed up with US Safety Products, Graphics & Apparel and created a team store for all of your spirit wear needs for all levels including Frankfort Baseball, Frankfort Force and Frankfort Eagles teams!
There are numerous logos to pick from and almost all items have an option to be personalized.
Opportunities are available to earn your volunteer refund.

Our deepest condolences go out to the Scaletta Family. We mourn the loss of a long time and current board member of Frankfort Baseball, Joseph Scaletta. Joe was a long time Board Member even before since his son Sam started in 2007. Joe worked tirelessly at almost every level and the latest being at the upper levels of Pony/Colt/Palomino/Collegiate. He was instrumental in Frankfort Baseball joining SWILA as well as coordinator of the Frankfort Baseball Scholarship program with Lincoln-Way East and area high schools. Joe's pride and joy was Borg Warner field. He worked endless at its upkeep. If we had a tournament, you would have seen Joe there volunteering. Joe loved baseball especially Frankfort Baseball. Outside of baseball Joe was the Co-Founder of Scaletta Armoring in Bedford Park, IL. Private family funeral services will be held at Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Church on December 1, 2020. Funeral Information: Cumberland Chapels, 708-456-8300 or www.cumberlandchapels.com.
Memorial contributions can be made in memory of Joseph V. Scaletta to Frankfort Baseball online here or you can mail a check to Frankfort Baseball, P.O. Box 261, Frankfort, IL 60423.
