No rest for DYB's best, who are set to begin all-star season
by Andy Sandrik

Well, that was quick. Just days after the completion of the Dillsburg Youth Baseball season, the league's top ballplayers are already back on the field ready to represent their town for all-star season. The DYB is sending three teams -- 9-10, 11-12 and Intermediate (50/70) -- to the diamond for all-star play and will also be sending three teams in July to compete in the Clarence Boyd Tournament. In years past, there would be a small layoff between DYB season and the start of the all-star schedule. No such luxury now.

After six games in 11.5 hours on one of the hottest days of the year so far, “Team Storm”, Dillsburg Girls Softball Association’s 11U Softball team, fought though heat, fatigue, injuries and great competition to win the Suburban Girls Softball League’s 2016 Championship Tournament on June 11. After finishing the regular season with a 13-5 record and a 3-way tie for second going into the playoffs, Team Storm was seeded fourth out of the 6 team bracket, based on run differential verses the other second place teams. The day proved to be a long, but fruitful one.
