6-4-3 DP Baseball alumni fill postseason college baseball rosters

As a youth baseball academy, 6-4-3 DP Baseball strives to develop its players into college caliber student-athletes.  As a small business in the youth sports industry, the impact our organization has each year is ambiguous or elusive to measure at times.  Since 2007, three hundred and four (304) student-athletes (and counting) have graduated from 6-4-3 DP Baseball academy teams and entered the college ranks to continue their baseball careers.  This statistic gives our organization great satisfaction and immense pride.  This spring, thirty-nine (39) 6-4-3 alumni have recently competed (or are currently competing) in postseason college baseball.  Thirty-nine (39) former 6-4-3 players are on rosters competing in 2019 DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, and JUCO regionals, super regionals, and/or world series.  This statistic reminds us that our organization does have a strong impact through the tremendously talented student-athletes accomplishing great things in their respective college journeys.
