Tim has been a Las Vegas resident for his entire life. He is a 1982 graduate of UNLV, obtained a law degree from the University of San Diego in 1985 and retired from the full-time practice of law in 2007. He is an owner of Forte Specialty Contractors, an advisor to the Engelstad Family Foundation, and is Chairman of The Miracle League of Las Vegas.
After watching a segment of HBO Sports by Frank Deford, Tim was inspired and determined to develop the first Miracle League field in the Las Vegas valley. As luck would have it, within months, the First Christian Church answered the call and committed to dedicate 1.2 acres of land for construction of a baseball field and playground; all specifically design for the special needs community in Las Vegas.
The former Potocsky Little League field (where Tim played as a boy) is now home to a state-of-the-art facility where players, friends, families and our community can enjoy America’s favorite past time played by the most treasured of athletes.
“I’ve always had a passion for helping others”. Roxanne nurtured this core value first in her role as President of the Board of Directors at Rainbow Days, a children’s charity, in Dallas, Texas, dedicated to teaching young children basic life skills to over come adversity and grow up safe, principled, and confident. With her family’s recent relocation to Las Vegas, Roxanne was determined to continue her involvement with a local children’s charity.
With God’s guiding hand, and the encouragement of former Miracle League Executive Directors Rip and Leah Rippetoe, she discovered the amazing Miracle League of Las Vegas. In addition to her involvement in the community, Roxanne’s professional career includes 17 years in business management at AT&T and 15 years operating her own interior decorating and design business. Roxanne will be responsible for leading future growth and fundraising efforts to insure the very special children of Miracle League have the opportunity to play baseball for many years to come.
