It's time to clean up and get ready to PLAY BALL! DHYS needs your participation from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. this Saturday, August 23, to lend a hand and get our fields and common areas ready for Fall Baseball 2014 at Medlock Park.  Come even for an hour -- it all adds up!

As you may know, we are a 100% volunteer run baseball program. Your participation is vital and reflects a positive baseball experience for all who participate at DHYS and watch our games. Mark it on your calendar and come help out!

Free Parents/Coaches Clinics this Weekend!

Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity in front of you this weekend.  You are already planning to be at Medlock Park on Saturday August 23 for Field Day, so just stick around for our Fall Parents/Coaches Clinic. This clinic is 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. Now it is your turn to get some individualized attention.

Everyone can learn something new. They will cover the fundamentals that are necessary at each level as the clinics are broken up by age group.

1:00pm Mustang and International Parents/Coaches Clinic

3:00pm Bronco and Pony Parents/Coaches Clinic

5:00pm Shetland and Pinto Parent/Coaches Clinic

These clinics will take place at the Clubhouse near the batting cages RAIN or SHINE. Parents/Coaches can attend any level clinic with the understanding that the focus will be on the levels specified. Coaches at the level specified will be given priority during the Q&A portions of these clinics.

For more information about our Professionals please visit their websites at www.pitchingforexcellence.com and www.toptierbaseball.com

Please direct any questions/comments/concerns about clinics to our VP Planning, Chris Foster, .

100 Gloves Project a Huge Success!

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!
