The Double Angel Foundation (DAF) is looking for baseball and softball players between the ages of 5 and 18 who may need some financial assistance to play their sport.
DAF annually grants up to $7,000 in sports scholarships to area youth ages 5 to 18. These scholarships can be used for high school baseball, special needs baseball programs and girls’ softball to cover registration fees, uniforms and equipment.
So far this year, the Foundation has given $4,000 to Parker Youth Sports to pay for scholarships and equipment. A total of $3,000 is still available to award to individual youth.
“We don’t want to see an enthusiastic young potential ballplayer not get to learn or continue playing baseball because the family is struggling financially,” according to the DAF Board of Directors.
The scholarship program and the Double Angel Foundation were created in honor of Dillon and Logan Dixey, two young Parker brothers who loved baseball but tragically drowned in 2000 after being overcome by carbon monoxide while swimming at the rear of a houseboat on Lake Powell.
