Pirates Jason Grilli raising awareness for National Grilled Cheese month


Pirates Pitcher Jason Grilli Teams Up With Feeding America To Serve Grilled Cheese Sandwiches For Americans Facing Hunger In Pittsburgh

Chicago White Sox fans remember Jason Grilli? No? Well that’s understandable as he started eight games for the Sox and had a miserable 7.40 ERA on the southside in 2004. It took 13 seasons, but Grilli has found himself in the Major Leagues last season. He was the closer, 33 saves on a Pittsburgh Pirates team that went to the postseason for the first time in 20+ years. Jason Grilli even had a save in the NLDS.

Now he’s trying to save you from going without some good grilled cheese.


Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jason Grilli volunteered at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank by serving grilled cheese sandwiches to Pittsburgh area food bank clients in honor of National Grilled Cheese Month in Duquesne, Pennsylvania. Jason Grilli – fondly nicknamed “The Grill” and “Grilled Cheese” is doing his part to fight hunger. And who doesn’t love a great grilled cheese?

Especially if you’ve ever been to the Mars Cheese Castle in a remote part of rural Wisconsin close to the Illinois border.

    This is a good thing he is doing. National Grilled Cheese Month is a very important cause, right up there with the homeless, unemployment, and child abuse. Let’s get the word out – National Grilled Cheese Month is here.
