Welcome to the
state website for Dizzy Dean Baseball & Softball.
This site was established for the communities and young
people who play Dizzy Dean Baseball and Dizzy Dean
Softball in the state of Mississippi. If you would like to
become a Dizzy Dean sponsored recreational facility,
please contact any National Director.
"FUN, CHARACTER, WINNERS"
Baseball and Dizzy Dean Softball are not for coaches, parents, or
spectators. They are for the youth that play the game. Two of
the greatest outlets for young people are baseball and softball. As a
professional, Dizzy Dean played baseball for the love of the game. He
played with the same enthusiasm, intensity and energy as the youth play the
game today. Dizzy Dean played because it was fun. We must continue to make
baseball and softball fun without placing undue pressure and stress on our
youth. Our youth come first, winning second. When you build the
character in a youth, you build a winner.
There was no organized baseball in Arkansas while Dizzy Dean was growing up
and he was denied the opportunity to play baseball as a young boy. It
was Dizzy Dean's dream that one day every young person would have the
opportunity to play ball. This was Dizzy Dean's dream, this is what
Dizzy Dean Baseball is about.
