Shawn Lee enters his sixth NTABL season and forth season as the Dallas Spirits Baseball Club Manager, Veterans (35+) Team Manager, and Fall Ball Team Manager. Lee continues to be a solid hitter with power to go deep, providing clutch hitting and speed used both on the base paths as well as tracking down of balls in the outfield. As a competitive defender, you can count on a few great throws or relays leading to put-outs when there are greedy opposing runners.
A natural leader, Shawn provides great leadership and organization to the ball club and is well respected between his teammates and throughout the league. Lee played most of his childhood through age 18, where he peaked in Legion play. He then played amateur baseball periodically following high school before focusing on the camaraderie of local softball leagues for the next 20 years. He ultimately made his migration to Dallas, Texas in 2011, where he discovered the game of baseball is played frequently.
After returning to the game he loves, Shawn saw a successful return season and batting a average above the .300 mark. In his first season back and following 20 years off from baseball, Lee went on to win the NTABL Veterans League Home Run title in 2011. He has since graduated to four consecutive NTABL All-Star appearances at Dr. Pepper Ball Park in Frisco, TX. Shawn led the Spirits in hits, triples, extra base hits, and finished second on the team in batting average of .415 during the 2015 season and batted .357 in 2016 for the Veterans (35+) team, finishing 6th on the team in hits. On the Masters (45+) squad, he hit .341 and finished tied for second in doubles with 4, and again 6th on the team in hits.
Lee is an active Board Member for the NTABL and also serves as the League’s Director of Social Media. He joins the club from his home state of Wisconsin and is a fanatical Green Bay Packers fan. You can see his competitive spirit when it comes to the other game he loves and the team he loves come football season. A business-owner and nearly a lifetime DJ, he’s had enormous success in the past year as a resident DJ at Renfield’s Corner in Uptown, Dallas, as well as being the first recruited “Official KiddNation DJ” for the nationally syndicated Kidd Kraddick Morning Show. Shawn is also a full-time Systems Analyst in the Technology Department at a school district in Fort Worth, TX.
