Tigers Hosted the Brooks Wallace Memorial Tournament

“The Dallas Tigers hosted the Brooks Wallace Memorial 16U Tournament June 18-20.  Congratulations to the Buzz Lightning Baseball Academy who defeated last year’s champs, the Texas Prospects, at Plano High School Sunday night. The tournament was held at Plano HS, Plano East and Plano West.
 
The Brooks Wallace Memorial honors the memory of Brooks Wallace, who was a three year letterman at Plano High School and played shortstop for Texas Tech University for four years.  After leading Tech to its first ever Southwest Conference Tournament, Wallace joined the Texas Rangers organization for two years before heading back to Tech as an assistant coach. 
 
Tragically, at the age of 27, Brooks lost his battle with cancer leaving behind a legacy of good works, good friends and a knowlege by all that knew him that he loved the game of baseball and the game of life.  Brooks made such an impact on the game that in 2004, the College Baseball Foundation began awarding The Brooks Wallace Award the best college player each year.  In 2008, the CBA began awarding the honor to the best baseball shortstop  each year.  
 
In honor of Brooks, next year’s tournament will be bigger and better than ever with plans to donate a portion of the proceeds for one or more scholarships to some deserving graduating senior players.
 
Thanks again to all the teams that participated.”

  3. I figured out more interesting things on this weight-loss issue. One particular issue is a good nutrition is especially vital while dieting. A tremendous reduction in junk food, sugary food, fried foods, sweet foods, beef, and bright flour products could possibly be necessary. Possessing wastes organisms, and harmful toxins may prevent ambitions for fat-loss. While selected drugs for the short term solve the challenge, the horrible side effects are certainly not worth it, and they also never present more than a non permanent solution. It is just a known idea that 95% of diet plans fail. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this blog site. https://osteoporosismedi.com buy osteoporosis medication
