This year DHYS will be joining the Braves on Star Wars Night! We have rented the "Top of the Chop" outdoor patio for DHYS families to mingle before the game. The patio is located on the second level overhanging right field. We have the patio available from 5pm until first pitch. Because it is Star Wars night, the Braves are not having a traditional parade. However, players can dress in Star Wars clothing and participate in the pre-game parade by lining up at the Hank Aaron Ramp by 6:30pm. More information is available about Star Wars night at www.atlantabraves.com/starwars
Our fund raising ticket was general admission ticket for seating in the upper deck. We will be sitting in section 423 and 425. There are fireworks that follow the conclusion of the game.
Come join us for a night of Braves baseball, Star Wars and Fireworks!
Free Fall Players' Clinics!
Our Fall players' clinics have been scheduled. These clinics are led by our resident experts and former Professional ball players, Ben Johnstone and Bill Melvin. These guys have been a staple around the park for years and have taught thousands of players through their clinics. Players of all skill levels can learn something new. Parents, we encourage you to stay with your player and learn something new too! These clinics will take place at the Clubhouse near the batting cages. Here is the schedule:

We received the following email from Dina Zeckhausen, reporting in on the results of our efforts to collect used baseball equipment for the Julie Castillo League in The Dominican Republic:
Thank you SO Much for your help with getting the word out about 100 Gloves! This afternoon we picked up a bin overflowing with equipment from DHYS. (Please visit our Facebook page, where I just posted some photos of the updated loot.) We got lots of small gloves, cleats and bats from your group--which was perfect because we had already gotten lots of big stuff for the high school age kids. This was a very successful drive!
We will keep you in the loop about shipping and distributing the equipment. It may not be until December: we are considering a Xmas trip, where the boys will get to play Santa. :)
In the meantime, thanks again...wishing you and your League a great end of the baseball season!
