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.”
