Charley gets kickin with Martin Gramatica

- Charley spent Wednesday morning at Ed Radice Sports Complex playing kickball with the Gramatica brothers and learning about their upcoming Charity Kickball Tournament. 

The Gramaticas are well known in the area for their athletic achievements. Martin played for the Buccaneers, Bill for the Cardinals, and Santiago a former kicker for USF.

But sports aren't the brother's only passion. They created the Gramatica Family Foundation, which builds homes for combat-wounded veterans. 

They will be hosting their annual Charity Kickball Tournament on Saturday, October 22. And it's not just kickball, they will  have several sponsors that will be providing food and drinks, plus a kids area with dodge ball, face painting and bounce houses.
