Tom Brown's Rookie League
Thirty-three years ago, a two-time Superbowl Champion and two sport professional athlete, Tom Brown, made a decision to move to Salisbury to raise his family. From that day forward, Salisbury was a better place. Tom had a vision of creating a safe zone for children to enjoy sports without being critiqued. Every day of his post professional sports career has been spent helping children in sports. In its tenure, the Tom Brown Rookie League has enrolled over 3500 players from Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. In addition, the league has provided hundreds of self-funded scholarships to underserved children.ldren.
It is bittersweet to announce that Tom will coach his last game in June; he will retire from coaching. Please stop by his fields any Monday thru Thursday afternoon to see the legend in action one last time. We would like you to join us in celebrating the era of Tom Brown.

What will happen to the league?
After retirement from coaching, Tom will hand over the basketball coaching reins to Jessie, his daughter, and he will continue as executive director. With fewer rookies enrolled, it is difficult to continue the rookie league without donations. Since we all know the rookie league experience is an invaluable asset, please consider donating to this league to help with equipment, insurance, and facility fees. The Tom Brown Rookie League is a Not-For-Profit Organization in good standing, and any donation is tax deductible, as allowed.
