Gross has worked in baseball on both the professional and minor league levels along with coaching college baseball at the University of Arkansas/Monticello and Pensacola Junior College.
Since he & his late brother (John) founded PRO-DAY Baseball in 1989, they have helped hundreds and hundreds of players advance into professional baseball and with thousands going on to receive scholarships to play college baseball.

"This is a great opportunity for baseball players of all ages to listen to a person who has been in baseball on all levels as a professional scout and a collegiate coach," said Kyle Slayton, head baseball coach at Nashville High. "The knowledge that they will receive in this short time is remarkable and the money that is raised goes to an outstanding cause."
The camp is named in memory of the former 1952 Nashville High graduate who was a five-star athlete in baseball, basketball, football, track and tennis. The money raised for this camp helps go to a student-athlete each year at Nashville High who plans to go off to college to continue their education while playing sports.
