THE FOUNDATION

The Fowlkes Family Tradition began 100 years ago, many years before I was born as the youngest of five with 3 older brothers & an older sister. My grandfather, Roy Fowlkes, quit school to play professionally at a young age, eventually playing in the 1st game ever at Yankee Stadium in 1923 as a member of the Boston Red Sox. 

Believe it or not, including my father & my three brothers, we all have a combined 175 years of baseball coaching experience! Many stories of successful baseball careers. A lot of great memories.

A BASEBALL FAMILY

As the youngest member of a proud baseball family, I feel that I must do my part to continue our tradition. We lost our sister Lynne to cancer in 2004, and just recently my 89 year old father, Doc Fowlkes, passed in February of 2015. My brother Eddie lost his battle with brain cancer in April of 2016, and my 86 year old mom, Gwen Fowlkes, passed on November 3, 2016.

We've decided to form a non-profit organization called "Fowlkes Baseball, Inc." In honor of my mom, dad, sister, and brother, "The Fowlkes Family Foundation" has been established. The funding will be used to provide support for young student-athletes, especially those lacking most in resources. 

I'm passionate about motivating today's players to enjoy the game of baseball!
