Update: 4/27/2020

Dizzy Dean Baseball & Softball was founded as a program for as many youth as possible to play with the emphasis being on supporting all City, County, and Parent Organizations in Local League Play rather than tournament play. With that still being the driving force of the belief of the Dizzy Dean National Board of Directors and due to the continuing threat of the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Dizzy Dean World Series and encourage all organizations to try your best to provide a baseball and softball season in your community for all youth to have the opportunity to make memories that will last a life time as they have had in past years.

Dizzy Dean Baseball Inc sanction fees have been waived and each state will have the authority to have a State Tournament should things clear up in time for them to do so prior to school starting in August.. We wish all of you the best and will be available to assist in any way that we can during this unprecedented time in all of our lives. Keep your family safe and we look forward to seeing all of you in SOUTHAVEN in 2021.

Welcome to  Dizzy Dean Baseball/Softball 

Dizzy Dean Baseball, Inc. is a non-profit youth Baseball/Softball organization whose mission is to provide a recreation outlet for as many youth as possible regardless of sex, religion, race or color. 

 

The main purpose of this program is to provide youth ages five (5) through nineteen (19) years of age, a fair and equal community based baseball and/or softball program.

 

Our goal is to instill in our youth the ideas of good sportsmanship, honesty, discipline and a sense of teamwork so that they may become strong, healthy, well-adjusted members of their community.

 

The rules of Dizzy Dean Baseball Inc. are designed with emphasis on local league play rather than tournament play.  However, we do offer State and World Series tournaments for leagues wishing to participate.

 

Our rules are based on the official rules of Major League Baseball with specific modifications and field dimensions, which are designed with the age specific physical development of the youth taking precedence. 

There is no such thing as “one size fits all”; every community has their own specific needs.  With this in mind, Dizzy Dean Baseball/Softball allows individual parks to modify their regular season playing rules to better fit the needs of their youth, as long as the overall intent of the rules is not violated (particularly pitching rules).

 

Jay Hannah “Dizzy” Dean was always interested in youth baseball and the development of youth. Dizzy Dean Baseball, Inc. is a front-runner in youth baseball and softball and our intentions are to honor Dizzy Dean by associating his name with a recognized leader in the field of youth baseball and softball.

 

First organized in 1977 Dizzy Dean Baseball, Inc. has grown to a multi-state youth based organization.
