The mission of the Haddock Foundation, a 501(c)(3)
corporation, is to foster national and international amateur sports
competition. Gerald Haddock, a lifetime sports
enthusiast and minority owner and General Counsel of the Texas Rangers from
1989 to 1998, is President of the Haddock Foundation.
The Haddock Foundation currently serves as the general
partner of the Texas Collegiate Baseball League, Ltd. (“TCL”), a summer wood
bat league for talented baseball players seeking professional careers. The TCL was co-founded by a company controlled
by Mr. Haddock and Wayne Poage, former Dallas Baptist Athletic Director.
In 2007, the TCL licensed the operating rights for the baseball
league to a reorganized TCL and the Haddock Foundation remains involved through
active oversight and promotion of the licensed teams.
