improving the physical, emotional and mental well being of Canadian at risk
children and youth.
    "In recent times, there is a growing certainty about sports and
recreation as an important component of quality of life," states Mr. Gruber.
"Investment in sports and recreation, especially investment in youth sports
and recreation, increases self-esteem, improves academic performance, improves
health, and lowers crime rates."
    "We have been working since the company's inception on establishing
strong relationships with government decision-makers and corporate sponsors,
"states Mr. Gruber. We are pleased to report that the response to date has
been extremely encouraging and Gruber Sports has already attracted significant
interest from the public and corporate sponsors including Patey Law Group,
Accident Resolution Group and Ariston Realty Corp. in Toronto."

are in a strong position as we prepare to roll-out our head office in the

this nature will have a profound impact on society as a whole. Canada and the
Canadian baseball communities stand to gain long-term benefits from Gruber
Sports." For more information, please visit our website at
