A very sincere thank-you to all our AZ District 13 volunteers.

Thanks managers & coaches for your dedicated efforts. You presented a positive influence for your players.. Believe me, they'll remember their Little League experience for a very long time.

. . . to team Moms/Dads and fans.  For assisting your team with all the "little" stuff like team photos, banners, transportation, snacks, washing uniforms and watching out for one another. AND, for especially being supportive of your team and players.

. . . to all our countless volunteers like our various field prep folk who "just got after it . . ." without a hint of a complaint.

. . . It was another successful season and the kids had fun.  That's why we do this.  And. we couldn't have done it without you.

See you at the ball park.

- A 'dawg' story as told by Mgr. Tom Kingery: a few years back as the then 9/10-year old All-Stars were practicing & a stray dog wandered onto the practice field. As some of the kids tried to shoo him off the field the stray thought this was fun. So, he began to 'play' by barking & running with the kids. Soon, all the kids were running after him - laughing, giggling & barking. Thus the DAWGS came to be.

- Did you Know?  Manager Tom Kingery received the 'Ed & Charlotte Fish' award as the West Region manager who best exemplifies the qualities & virtues of a Little League manager. The award is voted on by his West Region Tournament managers. Congrats to Tom, Rich & the kids - they all did an awesome job!


12-years of excellence: 

This is our 12th year of existence. Established in 2000, AZ District 13 began play in 2001. We've done OK . . . with several AZ State championships, 5-Little League Western Regional appearances and 3-Little League World Series appearances. All in 12-short years.

Our success is a direct result of the tireless efforts of our local League volunteers. We know it's about the kids ". . . building leaders and teamwork skills . . . and building character". We're always looking for volunteers to help with upcoming seasons - so, come on over, jump on the wagon & enjoy the great organization that is Little League Baseball & AZ District 13.
