Inducted in 2006
Alex Gutierrez was the soul of baseball in the Lower Valley for 57 years
He ran youth, adult and old timers leagues
The leagues involved over 1000 players annually
By the time of his induction in 2006, the El Paso Baseball Hall of Fame had inducted 110 members and 64 had been associated with his and his programs
In 1950, members of the Ysleta Volunteer Fire Department got him to organize a baseball team for the neighborhood kids
That became a life long passion in helping promote the sport of baseball with the kids in the Lower Valley
His passion was to channel the energies of the youth in a positive manner and he used baseball as the vehicle to achieve that goal
Volunteered and organized over 52 leagues involving approximately 1000 players coaches and managers each year
Instrumental in getting the City and County of El Paso to develop more playing fields for baseball
From groundskeeper to scorekeeper to Manager to League President, he wore all the hats and handled all the duties needed to make the leagues successful
His humility kept him from being recognized and honored by the baseball community with his selection into the El Paso Baseball Hall of Fame at an earlier date
A consistent “Baseball Man”, who with great passion and determination was instrumental in helping baseball players from the entire El Paso area
The baseball fields at Blackie Chesher Park and Capistrano Park are named the Alex Gutierrez Fields in his honor
