Moving On Up

By Alexa Lezak – 


Hi everyone! My name is Alexa Lezak and I am the new Events Coordinator at the Texas Baseball Ranch®. I am from the BIG town of Lake Jackson, Texas. I started working at The Ranch two summers ago, so I may have already met some of you over the past couple of years. I started off as an intern, mostly helping out with all the camps, and last year began working as Jill’s assistant. I learned A LOT about everything that goes on behind the scenes at TBR, from marketing emails to social media, formatting the blogs and newsletters, profit and loss statements, and Durathro™ mailings, just to name a few. I will continue to keep many of the tasks that I was doing previously but will now be taking on the full-time position of Events Coordinator, and I am excited to be more hands-on!


Growing up, I played every sport I possibly could – softball, soccer, dance, cheerleading, volleyball, and track. I even joined the chess team in middle school for a week! (Needless to say, that one didn’t stick.) My weekends were spent with my family, traveling around to different fields, gyms, courts, and arenas. I loved competing, I loved the environment that sports provided, and I knew that I wanted to continue playing for as long as I could. About the time I was 12-13 years old, I had decided that I wanted to go to college on an athletic scholarship. With lots of support from my family, I am grateful that I was able to achieve that goal. I accepted a scholarship my junior year of high school to play Division 1 volleyball at the University of the Incarnate Word. During my sophomore season, I tore my ACL, MCL, and meniscus. In short, I hurt my knee… BADLY… and decided I was going to transfer schools soon after. I re-recruited myself (quickly) and accepted a scholarship to continue my volleyball career and education at Dallas Baptist University. I graduated from DBU in the spring of 2019 with my degree, a major in psychology and a minor in marketing. I am thankful for the MANY life lessons that sports taught me and how they helped shape me into the person I am today.


(Not-So-Fun Fact: I also had three more knee surgeries during my time at DBU – I guess the athlete in me wasn’t ready to hang it up quite yet!)


However, you may be wondering how a psychology major got a job working at the Baseball Ranch. Well, during the three years that I spent at Dallas Baptist, I met some really wonderful people, but one in particular who was an athlete as well and played baseball for DBU. He is my now fiancé, Garrett, who all of you know is Ron and Jill’s son. So, without saying much more, that explains how and why I ended up at The Ranch! As many of you already know and have experienced, TBR is a very special place and I am extremely blessed that Ron and Jill offered me the opportunity to work here.


Even though I am now on the business side instead of the competition side (which my knee is very thankful for) I still enjoy observing and learning from a different perspective, and I think that’s why I have liked working at The Ranch so much. I am excited to get started in my new position and have the chance to get to know each of you (that I don’t already know) and re-visit with all the clients, coaches, parents, and athletes that I do know.


P.S. If you are ever out at The Ranch, don’t hesitate to stop by the little red barn and say hello – I am going to love getting to know all of you!
