Dizzy Dean Baseball/Softball
Dizzy Dean Baseball, Inc. is a non-profit youth Baseball/Softball organization whose mission is to provide a recreation outlet for as many youth as possible regardless of sex, religion, race or color.
Our goal is to instill in our youth the ideas of good sportsmanship, honesty, discipline and a sense of teamwork so that they may become strong, healthy, well-adjusted members of their community.
The rules of Dizzy Dean Baseball Inc. are designed with emphasis on local league play rather than tournament play. However, we do offer State and World Series tournaments for leagues wishing to participate.
Our rules are based on the official rules of Major League Baseball with specific modifications and field dimensions, which are designed with the age specific physical development of the youth taking precedence.
There is no such thing as “one size fits all”; every community has their own specific needs. With this in mind, Dizzy Dean Baseball/Softball allows individual parks tomodify their regular season playing rules to better fit the needs of their youth, as long as the overall intent of the rules is not violated (particularly pitching rules).
Jay Hannah “Dizzy” Dean was always interested in youth baseball and the development of youth. Dizzy Dean Baseball, Inc. is a front-runner in youth baseball and softball and our intentions are to honor Dizzy Dean by associating his name with a recognized leader in the field of youth baseball and softball.
First organized in 1977 Dizzy Dean Baseball, Inc. has grown to a multi-state youth based organization.
