Gregory Bancroft’s first published children’s book, Betsy’s Day at the Game is a result of telling stories to children and grandchildren for more than 30 years. An avid baseball fan, he shares an experience of going to a game that mirrors his own time spent with kids at the ballpark. Growing up in a small town in Minnesota, Greg and his friends spent a lot of time outdoors. They played baseball nearly every day in the summer. Over the years, he has followed teams in parts of the country where he and his family have lived.
Greg holds degrees from the University of Minnesota, Yale, and Luther Seminary. His professional career spans non-profit organizations and business enterprises across many states. Writing, telling stories, and engaging young minds have been central to his personal interactions for decades. He and his wife live in Minneapolis, Minnesota, near Lake Nokomis, while his children and grandchildren are scattered across the country.
