After a long drive to the Victory Custom Athletic factory and headquarters in Chatsworth, CA, we are proud to announce that the uniforms are now here at Grand Central Art Center – in the clubhouse and ready for the teams arrival. A big THANK YOU to the team at Victory Custom Athletic, especially Claudette Duggan, for helping us get the uniforms in less than two weeks. Their factory is amazing, here it is in action.
Meanwhile, back at Grand Central Art Center, our amazing preparator Matthew Miller was putting the finishing touches on the team clubhouse, now located in our GCAC Artist in Residence studio.
And here is what it now looks like in our new team clubhouse for the Cut-Off Men, all ready for the teams arrival!
You’ll have your first chance to meet the team in person this coming Monday night by attending the Dutch Treat Dinner/Ball Signing event at Izalco Restaurant, here in Downtown Santa Ana – balls to the first 50 individuals to arrive.

We found out that the Major League Baseball tryouts on Tuesday are free and open to spectators, so drive yourself over and join us at the ball park. Complete details and the address can be found online: http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/official_info/about_mlb/tryout_us.jsp
Without further ado, we would like to introduce you to Adam’s team! We are still missing a couple of teammate pictures and are working hard to recruit one last team member, so help spread the word. Even though each member trys out individually, Adam would still love to have a “team” of nine.
Projects like this, especially on such a short time frame (we just met Adam and heard about his idea for the first time a little over two weeks ago when we agreed to realize it), would not be possible without our own amazing Grand Central Art Center team. Thanks to their energy over the past two weeks and for all the hard work each has put towards this upcoming artist in residence with Adam. It was an extremely short timeframe to realize such a project, but their excitement and know how in regards to the elements for such a project helped to make it a reality. The team includes: Tracey Gayer, Matthew Miller, Jenny Mikhailik, Angelica Perez, Tony Pedraza, Maxwell Rivas and our newest addition, CSUF student intern Ariel Gentalen.
If you still need more information on Adam’s project, or would like to join the team (deadline extended to June 9), visit: http://grandcentralartcenter.wordpress.com/2012/05/30/dream-of-playing-in-the-major-leagues-mlb-join-gcac-artist-in-residence-adam-moser-and-tryout/
