The Flames Jarrad Grossguth is a natural talent to watch. One of the youngest Flames, the hard-hitting shortstop/third basemen has demonstrated an abundance of raw talent playing in his first collegiate summer baseball season. Fresh from the junior college ranks at CC of Rhode Island, Grossguth is slashing .273/.430/.455, proving he has seamlessly made the transition to wooden bat and the next level of competition. He also shares the team home run title with AJ DiFillipo with 3.
At CCRI his slash line was an outstanding .327/.426/.609 with seven home runs and 33 runs batted in. In somewhat of a recruiting coup for the Head Coach Chris Reardon, Jarrod will be transferring to Division II Queens College in the fall as a sophomore, eligible to play for three more seasons. Not yet 19 years old, the 5-11 185 pounder has a 60-yard dash time of 7.0 seconds and an infield velocity of 87 mph. The sky is the limit for this talented prospect.
Jarrod is the son of Donna and Randy Grossguth of Coventry, Rhode Island.
