The program is designed to teach kids the fundamentals of baseball/softball in a less competitive setting.  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 Dizzy Dean Inc. is to provide youth ages five (5) through nineteen (19) years of age, a fair and equal community based baseball and/or softball program. Dizzy Dean’s goal, along with HPR, 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.
