The predecessor of 6-4-3 DP Athletics, 6-4-3 DP Baseball Academy, was started in 2007 by Danny Pralgo, one of the most highly sought after instructors in the Atlanta area. Pralgo has been a student of the game throughout his life- from his time playing youth, high school, and college ball- and throughout his many successful years as a coach. Over the years Pralgo has watched the game of baseball change into a business which has become more interested in gaining profits than in teaching, developing, and assisting our youth to realize their potential in the game and in life itself. It was through his “old school” values and perspective of the game that fostered the beginning of the 6-4-3 DP Baseball Academy.
When Pralgo envisioned a full service sports organization capable of addressing the needs of players from first entry into the sport through the realization of players' full potential at the highest levels, it was clear that much work remained to be done. Since 2007, Pralgo has assembled excellent baseball and business minds to begin making his vision a reality. Through the collective efforts of many dedicated individuals and families, 6-4-3 DP Athletics was launched in August of 2010. The new organization coupled with its new home, the Aviation Sports Complex located in Marietta, Georgia, allows 6-4-3 DP Athletics to serve the development needs of youth in the area who desire to learn the games of baseball and softball.
On an annual basis, 6-4-3 DP Athletics facilitates 27 academy baseball teams ages 8-18, hosts approximately 50 baseball and fast pitch softball tournaments and showcases, partners in community/charitable events at the Aviation Sports Complex, and provides instructional development to thousands of kids through private, group and team lessons, camps, and clinics.
6-4-3 DP Athletics is founded on the principles of honesty, integrity, fun and consistency. Our organization is dedicated to creating a unique and safe environment for young athletes of all ages where they can learn the fundamentals of the game and improve their baseball, softball, and life skills for success on and off the field.
