A child’s dream soon becomes our future. Nurturing these dreams, however great or small, is the key to building a world where achievement knows no limits. The Double Angel Foundation is dedicated to guiding children in the fulfillment of their dreams through the joy of recreation and the love of “The Game”.
It is our vision to construct and maintain a baseball complex to serve our expanding community, where youth can share team spirit and a full sense of accomplishment. Our purpose is to enhance self-esteem, while fostering good sportsmanship, leadership and citizenship through team play. In addition, our intention is to develop special needs programs and offer scholarship opportunities. At the forefront of our efforts will be the need to provide ongoing awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

DOUBLE ANGEL BALLPARK UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
Double Angel Foundation is proud to announce a partnership agreement has been reached with GameDay Baseball to operate and manage the Double Angel Ballpark in Parker. All scheduling, park rentals, park maintenance and upkeep will be under the direction of GameDay. For information, please contact:
NEWS FROM THE BALLPARK
As of July 31, 2012, the Double Angel Baseball Club ceased operations. That organization had managed the Double Angel Ballpark since January of 2011; thus the Double Angel Foundation has once again taken over the operations and management of the park. On behalf of everyone involved with the Foundation, please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience teams had during this changeover.
All inquiries regarding the ballpark should now be addressed to the Foundation. The Foundation is currently negotiating for a new partner to manage the ballpark for the future.
13TH ANNUAL DOUBLE ANGEL GOLF CLASSIC RECAP
A gorgeous day on the links at the Club at Pradera awaited the 100 golfers who came out to support Double Angel Foundation on July 30th at the 13th Annual Double Angel Golf Classic. Thanks to everyone who supported the tournament in any way, from the sponsors and donors, to the volunteers and golfers. Because of the graciousness of Foundation supporters, a total of $36,000 was raised at the event.
Assistance Available to Play Baseball for all ages
Double Angel Foundation believes that no child should be denied the opportunity to play baseball for financial reasons. Organized sports are about much more than just the game, as it teaches discipline, work ethic, team work, time management, and provides much needed exercise. Double Angel offers scholarships to youth ballplayers at all levels for up to $500 per season to cover registration fees, uniforms, equipment, training and other expenses, based on financial need. Please use the link below to access the application.
SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS
Applications for 2013 will be available December 2012.
Dillon and Logan Dixey, for whom the Double Angel Foundation was formed, tragically never had the chance to graduate from high school. However, their spirit carries on as the Parker non-profit 501(c)(3) organization honors their passion for baseball and lifelong potential by providing scholarships to graduating seniors from high schools in Parker.

Josh Thomas – Chaparral High School Class of 2012
Timothy Covillo – Legend High School Class of 2012
