The Dallas Baseball Alliance is governed by an executive board and assistance from an advisory board of former professional athletes, scouts and community representatives.
While each member brings a unique skill set and background to the organization, they 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.
R Lamar Brooks
R. Lamar Brooks is the Founder and Executive Director of The Dallas Baseball Alliance, a group 501c3 non-profit youth baseball organization. The former Fortune 500 Facilities Director and Marion Wade Award winner attended the University of Arkansas-Little Rock. Brooks has managed in and created whole departments for some of the most prestigious facilities in the country including both Mount Sinai and St. Vincent Hospitals of New York, Houston’s Methodist Hospital and San Francisco’s California Pacific Medical Center.
In 2006, R. Lamar organized a free baseball clinic for 140 youth in partnership with Dallas ISD, 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.
Brooks’ son, a product of the Dallas Baseball Alliance is a great example of the program. Brandon Brooks used the scholarship that baseball offered to become not only a two-time team leading hitter but a dean’s list student-athlete and 2012 graduate of Prairie View A&M University.
