Grosseto are an Italian baseball team founded in 1952 and based out of Grosseto, Tuscany. They won league titles in 1986, 1989, 2004 and 2007. They also won Gold at the 2005 European Cup.

The team had numerous major leaguers over the years, including Anthony Ferrari, Jaime Navarro, Mike Smith, Tomás Pérez, Carlos Quintana and Craig Stimac.

Grosseto had financial problems and in 2013 the team dropped down to Serie C. In 2014 they won the Serie A2 championship and were runners up in 2015. After the 2015 season Grosseto Baseball ceased operations but resurfaced in 2020 in Serie B.

The Grosseto stadium, Stadio Jannella has continued to be used by other teams. In 2013 Mastiff Arezzo gained promotion to the IBL and relocated into the ballpark. They only lasted a single season in the IBL and have since returned to Arezzo. In 2017 the Jolly Roger of Castiglione della Pescaia, a Serie A2 team, moved into the Grosseto stadium.
