I started a baseball foundation to encourage youth to live a positive healthy lifestyle through baseball and athletic interaction throughout the city. As a former Texas Tech Red Raider football player, I was able to enjoy the many challenges that came along with being a student athlete. The most challenging obstacle was being a father and husband before stepping on the football field. As we educate our youth today, they must remember that life is a game within itself, and nothing is more important than family.
The Donald Harris Baseball Foundation is dedicated to help improve the lives of children in need and encourage youth to live a positive healthy lifestyle through baseball and athletic interaction. Our mission is to help instill values, discipline, and promote healthy lifestyles through mentorship, baseball programs, and youth education. Our goal is to help provide all children an opportunity to receive top quality training to help develop self-esteem and self-worth.
