The DGF Baseball Club hosted their annual End of Season Banquet for the DGF Babe Ruth and American Legion teams on Sunday, September 24, 2023 at the Dilworth Community Center.
The evening started with an awesome Italian Spaghetti dinner served by the Dilworth Lions, who are tremendous supporters and a partner of DGF Baseball in our community.
Each head coach recognized their team's season and handed out awards for top performance. The Club had 5 teams with 60 players participating this summer. The 13U team and the SR. Legion team had tremendous playoff runs making it to their respective State Tournaments. The 13U team finished State Runner-up and the SR. Legion team finishing as Consolation Runner-up.
Congratulations to all of our players and coaches on their seasons!

Media Coverage from the 2022 Day of Baseball:
Humble. Consistent. Teammate. MVP. All words to describe DGF Post 397 Alumni Jacobe Stetz. Officer Stetz was the Legion team's special guest tonight following practice and a team meal in preparation for this week's NW Sub State Tournament. Officer Stetz shared his positive experiences of playing DGF baseball, "managing your emotions, and playing for this year, because next year is no guarantee."
He talked about his Legion team's playoff run and winning the 2019 State Championship. He played a video of the final double-play that he stills has on his phone capturing the emotion and sounds of winning the tournament.
Officer Stetz was named the 2019 State Tournament Most Valuable Player, but its an award he doesn't want to take credit for because being humble and a great teammate describe him. Just like being honored as a Police Officer for his aid in a life saving rescue at Serenity Assisted Living Center, he doesn't want to take any credit.
The players had an opportunity to hear more about the role of a police officer in our community. The team asked him many interesting questions, that he graciously answered. Officer Stetz took a photo with the team and gave them a peak at the technology and tools inside a police vehicle to help him do his job while on patrol. Thank you Officer Stetz for being our special guest tonight and sharing your baseball playing experiences and your role as a Police Officer and keeping our community safe!
Our mission is to develop passionate and skilled baseball players to compete at a high level while learning the concepts of team, fair play and sportsmanship. Our program will use baseball as a platform to teach our core values and life lessons to young men in a team environment that is positive, challenging and fun. Our program will encourage, demonstrate and foster a culture of team and unity among players, coaches, parents/guardians, alumni, and fans in our Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton communities.
