Over the years Herts Baseball Club has played an important part in the community throughout Dacorum Borough Council where the club’s baseball complex is based. In 2003 the club’s contribution was acknowledged with the presentation of the “Club of the Year Award” by Sir Henry Cooper.
The club is keen to increase its role in the County and last month took part in the creation of the Dacorum Sports Network. The unveiling of the Sports Network was done by the Mayor of Dacorum, Cllr Brian Ayling, who was particularly enthusiastic about the potential good the DSN could do for sport within the borough.
“This network in Dacorum has been so meticulously planned and developed that it's going to hit the ground running,” he said. “Already there is a local structure for interaction between sports groups in Dacorum, reaching out into the broader spectrum of Hertfordshire and even nationally – that's the way to start. “What particularly enthuses me is that this organisation here in Dacorum and nationally has no age or physical demarkations. “What a wonderful concept and what a wonderful tribute to those involved. “I believe we are in a great position to contribute to the community of Dacorum and to represent the aims and aspirations of all the sports people (within the borough).”
The official DSN logo was unveiled by the Mayor in front of the local media. The line up also included two members of the Herts Baseball Little League (See extract from the article in the Hemel Gazette).
