Life Time Lineup


The "Life Time Lineup" is a group of distinguished Woodstock Little League Volunteers. Initially recognized to celebrate the 55th League Anniversary by longtime League Historian and Play Ball! Founder/Editor - Don Peasley, and then Little League President Bob Stroh, it recognizes people who went above and beyond the call of duty to help promote the character building traits Little League strives to teach! 


"I never ceased to be amazed by Don Peasley and Dwayne Raney's devotion to WLL. They were founding members of the league who were both actively interested and involved until the time of their deaths. Mr. Peasley published Play Ball magazine annually for over 50 years. The yearbook is an amazing tribute to the players, which I hope everyone enjoys and appreciates as much as I do. Dewayne regularly attended meetings and would often reach out to me to discuss how the league was doing and to share thoughts and ideas. He was instrumental in running the umpires for years and also served as President of the league. The dedication of these two men is truly unprecedented and amazing!" - Darrin Chonos, Past President
