Another year of the DP Upstate Fall League is upon us and the 2021 version looks to be ours best yet! This season, 66 teams, 47 different high schools spanning from Walhalla to Gaffney to Dutch Fork. As you can imagine, prepping for the league is no small task but in this area we are fortunate to have coaches and parents that go above and beyond to hit deadlines, deliver baseballs, jerseys to ensure the players in this area have a top-notch experience.
Per usual, the guys from dp wasted no time hitting the road as we landed at ten games and 19 teams in the first week of league play. On Monday and Tuesday, clear skies and a touch of summer still in the air was the opening week weather report as we hit up contests at Powdersville HS, Byrnes HS and the JB Red Owens sports complex. On Wednesday, it was a little different story as late evening showers made things dicey but all-in-all, 63 of the 66 teams were able to take the field in week one. Take a moment to see what we saw during the opening week of league play and enjoy who caught the eye to kick off the 2021 dp Developmental Fall League!
