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.

The Dizzy Dean National Board has voted unanimously
to add as a legal bat for Dizzy Dean Baseball the 1.15 BPF APPROVED BAT for ages 12 and under.




If a pitcher reaches a day(s) of rest threshold while facing a batter, the batter reaches base; (2) that batter is retired or (3) the third out is made to complete the half-inning or the game. The pitcher will only be required to observe the calendar day(s) of rest for the threshold he/she reached during at-bat, provided that pitcher is removed or the game is completed before delivering a pitch to another batter.





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.
