As we move into August and the start of "school" the Diamond Club is happy to announce once again that we are organizing a Dunwoody Wildcats Upper League team for the Dunwoody Senior Baseball (DSB) fall rec league. This is a great opportunity for freshmen at DHS to play baseball on a full-size field against older competition, and for upperclassmen to play live baseball in the fall - and maybe work on some skills along the way. The only eligibility requirement is that the player is a registered student at DHS.
The DSB Fall Upper League starts in late August and runs through the end of October, with games played at the Brook Run Park Baseball Fields located next to Peachtree Charter Middle School. The season is planned to have 10 games followed by single elimination playoffs; games generally avoid football schedules, and so in case you are also on the DHS football team it is possible to play for both.
We plan to cap the team size at around 13 players to ensure plenty of playing time for all. Exact cost is TBD but we anticipate the fee at around $160, which includes the DSB fee and jersey; each player provides his own pants, shoes, hat and playing equipment. We will add that DSB has some new COVID related rules for players, coaches, umpires and spectators, and we will be sure to let the team know what is expected of them under these rules.
If you are interested in playing on the team (or if you have any questions), please email Peter Keohane at email@example.com. The deadline for us to register with DSB is mid August so anyone who is interested must let us know no later than Wednesday, August 14.
