Jerry Bruce my guy! He's gonna help build the vision I've had for PAL baseball!#pals.T.R.O.N.G.Meet Coach Jerry Bruce. He is the head Baseball Coach for LR Parkview High School. We Will be interviewing him on NLRPD's Behind the Badge - January 11, 2021 from 5-6pm on KABF 88.3 FM or streamed live via the KABF website or "Simple Radio" app. Tune in and show some love for our community leaders and mentors.I was born and raised in Pine Bluff Arkansas to the parents Lee and Varnette Bruce both educators. I attended school and graduated from Watson Chapel High School class of 2001. While in high school I maintained a 3.5 GPA, and starred in both basketball and baseball making ALL State, and my teams won state 1 time in both basketball and baseball. Sports has always help shape me into who I am, and given me an opportunity to express myself in a positive manner while learning life skills to be a better citizen in society. I went on to attend UAPB majoring in Kinesiology in my undergraduate studies, and also acquired my masters in Physical Education. I played baseball for four years at UAPB playing middle infield where I was awarded ALL-SWAC team honors for my performance while playing at UAPB my junior season. Upon graduating from college I quickly started my teaching and coaching career in Pine Bluff. I coached basketball, baseball, and track.This career led me to where I am today as a teacher and head baseball coach in Little Rock School District at Parkview High School.I am married to Tiffany Bruce and have two children Aubrey Bruce, and Jarett Bruce.B4 and Baseball coaching at Parkview:I am the head baseball coach at Parkview High School. I coach mostly inner city youth who don’t receive the same opportunities as some of there peers. Upon getting the job I hit the ground seeing the need to help grow the game for kids who look like myself. Often times they aren’t in a position or afforded the opportunity to participate in competitive baseball due to high cost, and specialized training cost.I started the Building Boys Beyond Baseball Program Feb 2020 with the realization that for us to help change the narrative we have to do so with starting with the kids at the elementary age to build interest, expose kids to a higher level of baseball and instruction, and to be able to mentor young men in our community.I started this program because I know that the only way we can change the narrative for all kids in the community is to address the needs of kids who are left out in terms of being able to have the knowledge, resources, or support to play the game of baseball. We want to change the mindset of our community to a mindset that baseball is a fun and engaging sport that can teach life skills to our youth and give them something else positive to do which will help our kids become better citizens in society. - Coach Jerry Bruce ...

Now that 2021 is upon us, we're still dealing with COVID-19 and the ever evolving challenges it's put upon us all, everywhere. Everyone has had to deal with a lot more, but hopefully you've been able to keep your sanity!As with everyone else, we will continue to operate under all safety guidelines. All close contact activities of the program will remain closed. Tee-Ball, Baseball, & Softball registration will open January 15 as normal, as this sport is manageable with respect to safety guidelines. A season will be determined based upon the number of registrations. I underatand there is still some concern and/or fear as it relates to this pandemic, which is completely understandable. For those that DO sign up, we will move forward whether we run our own season as normal or reach out to play elsewhere!Anyone interested in coaching, whether you're returning or new, you may rigester on the volunteer page at anytime via NLRPAL.COM!Stay safe, stay aware!#PALS.T.R.O.N.G. ...

Let's go! The Dynasty begins!I expect to see my PAL ballers register and show up, ESPECIALLY if you're on MY teams!Middle school baseball players. Come join us in a informative, and fun day of showcasing your skills while being instructed by high school coaches. This camp in conjunction with Building Boys Beyond Baseball will focus on fundamentals of baseball along with some advanced baseball mechanics that can help middle school baseball players develop the right fundamentals to help them be prepared for high school baseball. All proceeds from this camp will benefit less fortunate families in the community during the holidays. We will have a special guest speaker that will be in attendance that will talk to the boys about what to expect in high school, along with sharing their story to the campers. We are excited, and we hope you are. This is a great opportunity for middle school aged baseball players from any team or league to come together for one great day of baseball. Any coaches that would like to be a part of our camp please reach out to us as well. The more valuable knowledge for these young people the better.#buildingboysbeyondbaseball#simsfayolafoundation#UniteBaseball#gamechangers ... See MoreSee Less

A while back I posted to let you guys know the plans of building something great. Many meetings, phone calls, and text messages have been exchanged and I believe a blessing is about to unfold. A lot of young hopeful athletes miss their opportunities on the baseball side due to high costs, lack of resources, and lack of support. A change is coming. With a partnership between PAL and Jerry Bruce / B4 GameChangers and Charles Germany, baseball for OUR youth is taking on a transformation! Our two power house non profit organizations are aiming to build an empire. Whether you play for PAL or B4, welcome to a new Baseball & Mentorship Dynasty. We're talking Spring, Summer, Fall, AND Travel Ball. These guys bring High School, Youth, and College Ball experience to the table as well as resources in the college and scouting world! Stay tuned and jump on board! The foundation has been laid; time to build the walls and put the roof on it!#PALS.T.R.O.N.G #buildingboysbeyondbaseball#greatnesstogether ... See MoreSee Less
