Robert was very consistant in the middle of the diamond for the JR Terriers all of last season, and he has continued that fine play through this fall with the SRs.
On the Terriers recent trip to Arizona, Robert caught the eye of the Bruin's recruiting coordinator, while racking up a .421 batting average through the tournament.
His on base percentage was also impressive at .522, while scoring six runs. Grilli also had an excellent game versus the Texas Rangers fall instructional team, cashing an RBI triple and assisting on several put outs.

The Bruins play in the SWAC Conference where their schedule will take them through Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Idaho. In 2011, they rung up a tremendous 49-16(.754) record
Congratulations to Robert and his family on this achievment. The Terriers look forward to Robert's further development ,as he continues to prepare for his college career.
