FALL BALL REGISTRATION ISĀ OPEN!

The Fall Ball season typically begins the first week of September and usually continues through the second week of November.

DPYB offers formal Pony, Bronco, Mustang and Pinto 8 divisions (2017 league age 8-14) in the fall. There are no evaluations, as the Fall Commissioner attempts to form balanced teams.  We also provide an instruction and scrimmage clinic/game based format for players 4 through 7.

Inaugural MLB Pitch Hit and Run on May 1!

More than 45 players showed up for the MLB sponsored Pitch Hit and Run event. DPYB Board Member Paula Yousef headed up a FUN first time event.  Players raced from second base to home, hit a ball long and straight from a tee and pitched to a target; all against their age group peers.  Pitch, Hit and Run overall and individual skill champions are eligible to advance to the sectional championship in Del Mar on May 21. Congrats to all that participated!

DPYB Day At UC Irvine - April 9, 2016

Thanks to Board Member Jerome Kucera, who arranged for more than 100 DPYB family members to enjoy the UC Irvine vs. UC Riverside game!

Players wore their DPYB caps and jerseys!!! Despite an occasional sprinkling from the sky, we brought our lawn chairs and enjoyed watching the game on the grass down the rightfield line.

DPYB players got to go into the Anteaters dugout to watch batting practice, most went out for a quick lunch off campus and then came back to take the field with the Eaters right before game time!  One of our players, Will Schattmaier, got to be the PA announcer too!

Go DPYB and Rip Em Eaters!!!

Spring Player Improvement Clinics A Success!!!

Each of our clinics were created to provide HIGH quality instruction to help our players improve fundamentally and further their enjoyment of our league.  These clinics were geared for Pinto 7 players and older.  

Managers and Assistant Coaches were encouraged to attend these clinics to add to their coaching knowledge.

We sold out (40+ players) clinics specializing on pitching, fielding, hitting fundamentals and catching.  Our mental hitting and arm care sessions had more than 30 players participating.

The Passing of Gene Burrus

Gene Burrus, a major supporter and longtime "Voice of Dana Point Youth Baseball", passed away on October 21, 2015.

Gene touched so many baseball families that the Mustang Field at the Dana Point Community Center was dedicated to him in 2012.

During the Spring 2016 season, DPYB commemorated Gene by wearing "GB" insignias on their jersey sleeve.

He will be remembered.
