Motivating student-athletes to achieve excellence in all they do while promoting the sport of baseball both locally and nationally.
In 2006, R. Lamar Brooks, Founder and Executive Director of The Dallas Baseball Alliance, organized a free baseball clinic for 140 youth in partnership with DallasISD, which featured several scouts and former professional baseball players. This effort proved to be the springboard for the eventual creation of the Dallas Baseball Alliance, which has grown into a nationally recognized brand that has been featured in Jet, Black Enterprise, Ebony and Essence magazines and chronicled in the Dallas Morning News and featured on Fox Sports Channel.
We are a group 501c-3 non-profit youth baseball organization serving youth ages 4-19.
We teach fundamental and advanced baseball skills to youth and coaches through league play, camps and clinics. We stage local, national and international baseball leagues, tournaments and special events. We also host parent seminars to engage youth and their families in discussions regarding youth, high school, collegiate and professional baseball opportunities within their communities and beyond.
We are energized and unified by a common passion for the game of baseball and, more importantly, recognize the tremendous benefits and opportunities baseball affords the youth of D/FW.
