Your son is about to embark on three pivotal years of baseball, preparing him for a successful high school baseball experience with probable hopes of competing at the collegiate or professional level. To help get him the experience, confidence, maturity, and knowledge of how best to prepare, the DSB Diablos provides high-quality coaching and consistently competitive baseball. Our championship experience in tournaments and World Series play affords the coaching staff the confidence as we embark on yet another successful Diablos season with your student-athlete being a part. Regardless of age group, your son will compete in a program run with top-flight professional instruction. All of the coaches have coached and/or played at the professional/collegiate/high school levels.
The DSB Diablos will compete at the appropriate levels throughout its season. Our belief is that we will initially play at the classification our pitching dictates and then look to play in tournaments later in the spring/summer that are a level above this projection and we will compete in tournaments with open competition levels.
Our intention is to present opportunities for each player to compete at different positions if he desires. As experienced coaches at the high school level, we understand that your son could be a middle infielder at 13u but asked to be an outfielder on his high school team. We try to avoid pigeon-holing a player into one position. We also understand that young players mature at different rates. It is important to continually test and evaluate young players so they have have opportunities to evolve at their own pace.
As we look to maximize player reps, we try to minimize the numbers on each team. With this in mind, we understand that to compete at the highest level of travel baseball, we must try to keep 6 to 8 pitchers. The DSB Diablos 13u and 14u teams will keep 14/15 players. The 15u team keeps more due to the length of tournaments and the number of games in a shorter time span due to spring high school baseball.
The DSB Diablos travel baseball program is a part of the Dunwoody Senior Baseball organization. DSB has been providing players from 13 to 18 years of age and opportunity to play recreational and travel baseball for 35 years out of Dunwoody Park on Roberts Drive in the City of Dunwoody. The Diablos are an important part of that mission. DSB is unique in that it offers a baseball option for every player. Whether they prefer recreational play or a more competitive travel level of experience, DSB offers an option. We encourage all families to support the recreational league and consider it as an option for additional playing time.
