 Dzialdowo

Several years ago the Physical Education Instructor of the secondary school, Zdzislaw Ziokowski, started up the baseball program and it's quite successful. There are now 140 players on 7 teams of baseball and softball. Boys and girls enjoy a program that extends itself into the winter months using the school gymnasium. The teams call themselves the "Yankees". The Dzialdowo Cup  was just held indoors, in the field house, in February of 2006.

PNYBF Vice President,   Al Koproski worked with the Dzialdowo organization and raised funds to help construct the baseball field. They honored Al by naming the field after him. There are plans to add a second field in 2006.
