A big thank you to all the organizers and volunteers who helped with the youth baseball that took place in Devlin this summer.

About 80 youths, aged five-14, from all around the district participated.

After purchasing all new ball equipment, a hotdog cooker, plus all the food/snacks, Devlin Youth Baseball cleared roughly $300, which will be put towards next year's baseball season.
