Each year Del Mar Little League recognizes its student-athletes that achieve excellence in academics through the DMLL Academic All-American program. “The goal of the program is to create incentive for our players to do well in school through recognition and acknowledgment,” said Larry Jackel, Del Mar Little League president. The program recognizes current active DMLL players that achieve straight “A’s” in the classroom during the little league baseball season.
Del Mar Little League will honor its student-athletes on Saturday, June 4, as part of the league’s Championship Saturday activities. “We are excited about the opportunity to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of our student-athletes,” said Jackel. “These kids have committed themselves to succeeding in the classroom and contributing to the success of their teams on the field. We want to thank them for their hard work and dedication.”
Del Mar Little League is proud to announce the 2011 Academic All-American Program Award Recipients and congratulates them all for their accomplishments:
