The "MGBL" established in memory of Teaneck resident, Moriah parent and friend to many - Mitch Gross, A"H, will be privately run and managed by Dov Elefant, Steve Gutlove, Dave Norman, Yudy Sheinfeld and several volunteers who form the MGBL Executive Committee.

The MGBL commemorates Mitch Gross while serving as a high-caliber recreational basketball program for Bergen County boys and girls in 2nd - 8th grades and high school boys. The league focuses on teaching basketball fundamentals to players at all levels and the value of working together as a team. The league is an enthusiastic and affordable program open to residents of Bergen County including Bergenfield, Englewood, Fair Lawn, New Milford, Teaneck, Tenafly and other surrounding Bergen County towns and also includes participants from Passaic County, Manhattan, Riverdale and Rockland County, NY. After general expenses, all profits of the league will be donated to local charitable organizations in memory of Mitch Gross, A"H.

Who was Mitch Gross?

Mitchell Gross loved many things; he loved life, he loved children and he loved to play ball, especially basketball. Mitchell always had a supply of bubble gum and candy for all kids. As a teenager Mitchell was a wonderful uncle to his nieces and nephews and when his own children were born, he was the best father imaginable.

No one knew how to throw a kid up in the air and make him/her laugh better than Mitch. Mitchell knew that in order to play a proper game you have to understand friendship, understand sportsmanship, and understand competition. Not only did he understand these three things but played every game with the “rules” in his head and in his heart.

Mitchell would be so happy and so proud to know that this basketball league is exemplifying all that he believed in.
