COACH DARREL PALMER

Coach Palmer was the head baseball coach at Northwest Classen for 16 years, earning a State Title in 1977. During his tenure at Northwest Classen he was nominated Coach of the Year twice and District 8 Coach of the Year. He has coached the Oklahoma All-State game and has been an Oklahoma Sunbelt coach for 21 years.  He is in the Oklahoma High School Baseball Hall of Fame; the National Sunbelt Classic Hall of Fame and is an Oklahoma Foundation award winner.

In 1985, through 1986, Coach Palmer took a break from high school baseball in order to build the baseball facilities at Dolese Park. These facilities, with the assistance and affiliation of The Northwest Optimist Club of Oklahoma City and City of Oklahoma City Parks & Recreation, have continued to grow over the years hosting many prominent baseball events including over 40 OSSAA State High School Baseball Tournaments, The Sunbelt Classic Baseball Camp, The Oklahoma City All-City High School Baseball Tournament and the Northwest Optimist High School Baseball Tournament.  In addition, these fields are also home to several summer Legion teams and Oklahoma City high school baseball teams; providing facilities that serve over 3,000 kids annually.

In recognition of his dedication and commitment for a better community, “Field 1” will now be referenced “Palmer Field” and will exhibit such name.
