About Us

DOUBLE PLAYS ATLANTA

Double PLAYS would like to officially announce our partnership with the Cascade Youth Organization’s Baseball program (CYO).  CYO Baseball and Double PLAYS, under the direction of Coach Jay Witherspoon will provide year-around baseball training and competitive recreational and travel baseball teams.  In addition to his duties as Commissioner for CYO baseball, Coach “Spoon” is also the former head coach of The Club’s highly-successful “Red” 11U baseball team.  This team’s success includes multiple State Championships (Major) and tournament victories over the past three seasons and most recently they were crowned USSSA Global World Series Champions as the #1 team in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  Coach Spoon and his team were the driving force in the re-emergence of highly-competitive baseball in Southwest Atlanta.  Coach Jay and his team are proud to be a part of the Double PLAYS family.

As a part of our continuing commitment to the community, Double PLAYS will expand its vision to include multiple sports including baseball, flag football, and basketball.  If you are a coach, team, athlete, parent, or volunteer who believes that a strong community relies on the development and support of our youth, we welcome you to join us.  Please contact us at 404-934-3994 or doubleplaysatl@gmail.com and follow us on social media (@doubleplaysATL on Instagram and Facebook).

GOALS

Our 12U baseball team is seeking on-going support and sponsorship for our athletic and educational programs from people like you in our community to have continued success.

This team won the 2017 10U Grand Slam World Series  in Panama City, FL and the 2018 USSSA 11U Global World Series in Gulf Shores, AL.

Beyond this season, we hope to send our first team to Dreams Park in Cooperstown, New York in 2019 and ultimately build our own athletic and academic facility to serve the youth in our community.

Your donation would greatly benefit our efforts to build a foundation for our youth to lead to their success. We are accepting monetary and in-kind donations. Any amount of support is appreciated.
