The Dirt Dogs were created in 2007. In their short history as an organization, the Dirt Dogs have participated in many National Tournaments, attended some of the best college showcases, and have got their players recruited.
The History of the Dirt Dog Organization is not as long as some organizations in the Central Valley, but in a matter of a couple of years they have earned the respect of the softball community. The graduating class of 2013 is only the third group of seniors to have come through the organization. With each senior class comes more commitments.
One of the differences in this organization is its ability to develop talent and not just manage players. As you are considering teams to join, be sure to look at their premier level team rosters and find out how many of those players were developed by the organization at the younger levels. If there are not that many players, it may be a good indication that the organization did not do an adequate job in preparing younger players for high level competition, had to go outside their organization to find better prepared players, and have not chosen to retain the players who were loyal to them.
During 2012 and 2013, the Dirt Dog Organization had teams win the ASA Central Section Association Championships at the 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 18u levels. By virtue of winning the Association Championships, the teams qualified to attend the ASA National Tournaments for each of these age groups. Additionally, the Dirtdogs are the first team from the Central Section to earn an outright berth to the PGF National Tournament by virtue of earning a berth at a the toughest qualifier in the nation - PGF So Cal.
