The St. John the Baptist Parks and Recreation Department recently kicked off the 2015 Dizzy Dean baseball season. The 2015 baseball league consists of 16 teams scheduled to play approximately 80 games through July.

“The opening tournament was a great success and we look forward to a busy fun-filled summer,” Director Kerry Watkins said. “A special thanks to my staff and the parents for assisting with the tournament. Based on the past performance of our teams, we have high expectations for a winning season.”

There are three tee-ball teams, four 7-8 year old teams, three 9-10 year old teams, one 11-12 year old team and two 13-14 year old teams. At the end of the season all-star teams are selected to compete at Regional, State and National Tournaments.
