Arizona’s Gregorius and Peralta Visit the Academy

Almost every weekend we have a surprise visit from a Major League Baseball player or two. Today Arizona Diamondbacks David Peralta and Didi Gregorius stopped by the Academy.

Peralta, born in Venezuela, made his major league debut in the outfield on June 1, 2014 with the Diamondbacks. Gregorius, from the Netherlands, is thriving at shortstop and has a slugging percentage of .522. Both are putting in work for the Arizona Diamondbacks and hope for a win over the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight.

Check out the pictures the two stars took with Academy members!
