DBB is primarily a youth baseball program for boys (13-14) playing on a medium sized diamond
to meet the physical development of growing youth. The main purpose of the program is to provide
a recreation outlet for as many boys as possible, with emphasis being on local league play rather
than tournament play.
Junior Boys is a Division of the DBB for boys and girls of age 13.
The incorporators of this program were the members of the Alexandria, La., Youth Baseball
Association, and it was their objective to make available an organized baseball program for boys
graduating from other youth baseball groups. It permits these boys to continue in a supervised
athletic program competing with boys of their own age and ability.
Leagues affiliating themselves with DBB, Inc. must comply with a basic set of rules and
regulations as outlined herein, but league officials will have absolute autonomy on certain
provisions as indicated.
Playing games at night, interlocking schedule, exhibition games, double or single
elimination tournaments and matters concerning player selection system will be responsibility of
the individual leagues involved, however, whatever system is used shall be under the direction of a
"Player Agent" who shall see that all teams have an equal opportunity in the selection of players.
While emphasis will be on local league play there will be, however, district tournaments, zone
tournaments, regional tournaments, state tournaments and a world series. All five DBB,Inc.
divisions have World Series tournaments for leagues wishing to participate following the close of
the regular season.
Proceeds from the franchise fee per team will be used to defray expenses of promoting the
program. The program is governed by an all volunteer& Board elected from the representatives
of the leagues, with the various states being represented by State Directors and
Assistant State Directors. The Board of Directors will elect the officers.
In the summer of 1973 the Board of Directors of DBB, Inc., feeling a need to establish a program
for its graduates established Majors Baseball for boys 15, 16, and 17 years of age
playing on a regulation sized field. In 1977 the ages were changed to 15, 16, 17 and 18. In 2005
the age of 19 was added to the Majors program.
Pre-Majors is a Division of Majors Baseball for boys of age 15 -16 and 17.
DBB, Inc., continues to encourage and support programs for the training and certification
of volunteer coaches. Furthermore, the organization is committed to providing a program that
emphasizes the safety and well-being of participants and spectators.
