100,000 Grounder Challenge!

Attention all players (boys and girls) 8U and older:  DHYS needs your help!  We will have our largest single fundraising event ever on January 9, 2016but we need YOU to make it happen!  How would you like a fantastic, covered batting facility?  How about a new parking lot that is not filled with giant puddles and is safe for everyone?  We certainly want these, but they require time, planning, money, and, perhaps most importantly, a commitment from the DHYS community.


Please, take a few minutes and read all about the 100,000 Grounder Challenge.  This one event could be the biggest game changer we've ever seen at DHYS.  We look forward to you taking part in the 100,000 Grounder Challenge!  Click here for more details.
