Dizzy Dean Recommended
Background Check







Welcome to the Mississippi 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.





Dizzy Dean 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.

Decertified Bats

Effective immediately, the bats depicted below have been decertified by USA Baseball and are no longer approved for play in leagues that have adopted the USABat Standard, including but not limited to the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Babe Ruth & Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth & Dixie Boys Baseball, Little League Baseball, NABF Baseball, and PONY Baseball.

On January 1, 2018, USA Baseball implemented the USABat Standard for non-wood youth baseball bats. Under USABat, approved bats that feature the USA Baseball mark are performance tested and required to perform at a wood-like standard. The bats listed below have been compliance tested and ruled non-compliant under the USABat Standard.

Team representatives are asked to check your team’s bats and withhold these bats from play if your team is in possession of any. League administrators are asked to share this information with your umpires. If any of these bats are attempted to be used during competition, it should be considered an illegal bat and subject to league rules regarding the use of illegal or unapproved bats.

The State of Mississippi Executive Board has established the boundaries as the Public High School District in which you live. 

Time Limit Change
The voting body of the Mississippi Dizzy Dean area leagues voted at the February 11, 2017 annual meeting to adopt time limits for tournament games.  All Baseball tournament games in all age groups, will have a time limit according to that age until they reach the championship game(s).  (Common Rule 19:14) All championship games will be no time limit, full 6 inning games according to the rule book.  These time limits are not “drop dead” time limits, which means, you must finish the inning.

Dizzy Dean Pitch Count Changes
The National Board for Dizzy Dean adopted a pitch count this year for boy’s baseball.  Please consult the 2017 rule book for the pitch count chart.  This rule is in effect now and will be used in league play as well as all tournaments.
