DGYB Board Presents Life Time Achievement Award

Chairman Dunn presented to Mr. Kevin Hansen ( in his absence) an award from the DGYB Board of Directors in recognition of his “lifetime” achievement in pursuit of excellence as a DGYB volunteer covering 5 decades with his continued service. Kevin continues to serve as Babe Ruth league President, team manager and primary field maintenance crew. Kevin has been successful in taking on many of the baseball field surface challenges both DGYB and PG Parks have been faced with over the years. Thousands of players have passed thru the dugouts at Memorial Park since Kevin took over as DGYB Babe Ruth President in 1987.  Many Thanks! To Kevin and his family for his continued service. The actual presentation will take place at an upcoming monthly board meeting.
