In 2018 DPYB followed the lead of other area leagues to offer DPYB players an opportunity play a higher level of baseball similar to independent "travel ball" programs. The idea is to allow for a more competitive experience, while staying tied to our community league. There is an added benefit of no monthly fees like those associated with outside travel ball teams.
In our short history of select play, our league has experienced a great deal of success. Our teams have quickly become competitive while playing against some of the best teams in Southern California. To date our select teams have tallied 5 post season tournament titles, and in 2019 two DPYB Select teams advanced farther than any DPYB team has ever gone in the Pony Baseball post season tournament play.
So what does a Select Baseball season look like?
Our select team(s) play league play against other select and travel baseball teams from Orange County in home and away games, typically on Sundays during the fall season. Additional tournament play may also be available. The initial cost to play Select will be the same as to play in our recreational divisions, but may have other moderate costs for outside tournament fees, upgraded uniforms and/or team equipment.
Sound like something you want try?
In the Fall of 2019 DPYB is offering a 12U Select Team. Other age group teams will be considered in the Spring of 2020, based upon interest and Board approval.
If your son or daughter is interested in playing on a DPYB Select team in the Spring, please keep an eye out for information once registration is opened for that season.
Please note that the formation of Select team(s) is contingent on sufficient interest and team approval by the Board of Directors. If there is insufficient interest/sign ups in a particular age division, no select team will be offered for that age group. Instead, all players will be invited to participate in regular DPYB season play.
TRYOUTS WILL BE LIMITED TO PLAYERS CURRENTLY REGISTERED FOR THE UPCOMING DPYB REGULAR SEASON. Players not registered will not be allowed to participate in select program tryouts.
