DTQ Newsletter September 2021 

DTQ Little League Families, 

Gosh can you believe it; we’ve made it to another school year.  We hope all of you have a wonderful and successful school year.  It has been great to see some of our DTQ Family Members out on the field this summer competing – we saw some players at the All-American Games, Perfect Game Coastal World Series, USA North-East NTIS Summer Identification, Baseball Youth World Series, Dawg Dayz, Slugfest, and more… we could go on and on (Instagram tags – keep them coming).  Keep up the good work!  You make us proud!
