Dunwoody, Georgia – Dunwoody Senior Baseball, Inc. (DSB) has installed its board of directors for 2021 and a new president for the first time in six years.
The all-volunteer board is made up of Tom Bass, Vince Carozza, David Frankel, Carlton Hamer (new to the board), Becky Jones, Jay Kapp, Shawn Keefe (new to the board), Laurie Smith, Steve Strauss, Jerry Weiner and Jimmy Wood.
Jay Kapp will serve as DSB’s president, succeeding Jerry Weiner who has been in that role since 2015. Kapp, a Dunwoody resident, played in DSB’s leagues during his high school years. He becomes the first former player to serve as league president. Kapp has worked with many Dunwoody nonprofit organizations over the past 20 years and was named Citizen of the Year in 2014 by the Dunwoody Homeowners Association.
Kapp will lead an organization known since 1975 for the quality of its programs and commitment to youth baseball. “Jerry Weiner led us through a period of growth and transition to where we are today,” said Kapp. “Because of the work done by Jerry and Chief Operating Officer John Crawford, DSB is well-positioned for the future.”
