My Students

Imagine that one of the only positives you have on a daily basis it to have the opportunity to have fun by competing in a junior varsity game of baseball. This is now a new outlet for our students at DHS.

Players will do anything to play a perfect game!

These young men and women that are a part of our team are special in our hearts and minds. They have taken the challenge of being a Bulldog baseball player to the next level by performing in the classroom and on the field. You are not going to be let down by these young men. Our students come from working-class families. Many of these families come from the fishing industry or serve our country in the military.

My Project

This is America’s favorite pastime, it's also the leading youth sport among boys across the United States. Baseball is not only a great way to introduce teens to sports, but it is also a great way to teach them the value of teamwork. Not to mention, it is a great way to stay healthy and physically fit when played on a regular basis.

America's pastime is our Game Time!

By us getting the baseballs that we need we will as a team be able to accomplish, cardiovascular training, strong arms, strong legs, hand-eye coordination, burn calories, stress relief, overall fitness, and we have the great opportunity to sharpen the mind.
