DP Request, HS Coaches: As the playoffs approach and match-ups have taken shape, we ask that you not contact DP for scouting reports for three reasons: 1) Our focus is on coverage of playoffs, which takes quite a bit of time already, 2) We work with so many of you, sharing of info on your opponent is often a conflict of interest for us, 3) When we watch games we see things through a different lens, we are searching for prospects and projecting them, not tendencies to defeat a club... We hope that two areas will assist you, our DP Search Button on right side of the website and the Recaps Page. Thank you in advance and good luck this post-season!

DP Scoreboard: To assist us when compiling accurate region standings, your help plugging in final scores into our statewide scoreboard is greatly appreciated. Any coach, parent or player can post it here: DP Scoreboard / Region Standings

baseball-brainDP's All-Academic Team: We spend much of our time chasing physical tools, but as we do each year, DP wants to honor student-athletes that take care of business in the classroom too!Thank you in advance to each high school coach and guidance counselor that nominates the student-athletes with a premium GPA, SAT/ACT and class rank from their team. By May 18, please submit nominations to Jason Kullman at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

dp logo1DP Player Rankings-How they are built: Each time we publish our player rankings in the various classes, we are sure to come under fire from those of you who enjoy visiting our site. Many of our viewers are prep players and their parents, easily the most critical of the names they see, the names they don't see and, of course, the order that they are ranked in...which we can understand and appreciate! For much more, click here.

Coaches, Players, Parents, Humans: Our staff wants to cover as many games as we can in 2015...But to pull off that feat, we must know where the games are, teams playing, time, etc... Please assist DP and college coaches by taking 15 minutes to plug in your spring schedule, and coaches, when dates get closer, plugging in your starting pitcher is highly helpful too. Help us help you and to promote HS baseball! Master schedule can be found here: Prep Schedules / The Anatomy of a Baseball Schedule / Also, please email schedules to DP at This email address is being protected from spambots.

dp_logo1.pngPre-Game Pet Peeves: Everybody has their own style and thoughts on how to best take a round of pre-game infield/outfield, myself included. After making a living watching high school baseball, I’ve seen my share of pre-games, good and bad. Not to say that I have it all figured out, but I can safely say that too many coaches are living in the Dark Ages. For more, click here.

dp_logo1.pngDo's and Do Not's for Parents: In my many years as a high school coach, I hear and can tell many stories on parents and what they say and do during their child's career. Enough stories to write a book that would take several days to read! Sometimes I like to think that 90 percent of what is said and done by parents is due to limited knowledge of a certain situation and/or how to handle situations. Unfortunately I know that while that is most often the case, things happen because a parent is just that, a parent. Fore more, click here.

God gave us His "Ten Commandments", biblical principles to guide ours lives. FCA gives us their version on how to act at the ballpark... To view, click here.
