Welcome to the
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.
"FUN, CHARACTER, WINNERS"
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
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.
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 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
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
