The latest Dos Pueblos Little League graduate to receive a college baseball scholarship is Isaac Coffey, star senior shortstop and pitcher at Dos Pueblos High School.
After graduation, he will move on to play with the Golden Eagles of Oral Roberts University, a long time Division 1 baseball powerhouse, having made it to the NCAA playoffs in 18 of the past 20 seasons
He will be the 4th of 4 brothers and first cousins to have played at DPLL and now playing college baseball.
Their names are on several of the district championship plaques on the backstops at the DPLL fields.
Brother Luke Coffey is a junior 3rd baseman at Westmont, first cousin Dustin Demeter is a sophomore shortstop at the University of Hawaii, and first cousin Davey Demeter is a freshman catcher/2nd baseman at Hancock.
Their dads, Joe Coffey, and Dave Demeter, coached the boys Little League teams, and their moms, Amy Coffey and Donna Coffey Demeter, served on our Board for many years.
When asked about their time at DPLL, the boys said:
  •  "DPLL was a great experience for me because it's where I started to love the game. Getting to play on my dad's team with my brothers and first cousins was a great experience and one that I won't forget. Without DPLL, I would not be where I am today and I am grateful that I had the opportunity to play there."
  • "DPLL was a terrific all around experience for me and I cherish the deep all star runs with my buddies. I'm glad I went to DPLL to play with my cousins and brother because I had some of the best memories of my life."
  • "It was competitive and I always felt the exciting pressure of not wanting to strike out against your buddy. All Stars were really fun, as  was being able to play up a level with my cousin Dustin and other guys."
There are a number of other former DPLL'ers currently starring at Dos Pueblos High and hopefully we'll have more of these to
report from time to time.
Isaac, and to all of you, we celebrate your success and wish you the best!

Congrats to DPLL's Ralph Randall
by posted 02/24/2015

Joe Talarico and Ralph RandallCongratulations to Ralph Randall, Dos Pueblos Little League volunteer since the 1980s, winner of the Santa Barbara Athletic Roundtable's Sportsperson of the Month. Randall, who won DPLL's President's Award in 2014, was active at DPLL through 1990 when his son, Scott, played. He returned to DPLL five seasons ago when good friend Mark Talarico's son, Joe, started playing.

Since then, he has put in countless hours volunteering with young kids, teaching them the fundamentals of baseball and being a supportive and knowledgeable coach. “It's rare to visit the ballpark and not see Ralph watching games and/or working with the kids,” says Jami Stetler, DPLL president. “DPLL is definitely proud and lucky to have him.”

“This is somebody our league really wanted to nominate and acknowledge,” said Dr. Dan Brennan, SBART board member and DPLL executive vice president. “He’s out at the Little League fields whether we’re in season, all-star season, postseason. He’s out there any day anybody wants to work on pitching. During the season, it’s about eight days a week that he’s there working with the kids.”

Brennan presented Randall with the award, saying “I appreciate you; we all appreciate you. We like to acknowledge all the volunteer work you do.”
