Beyond Baseball Closed

West Dallas Community Center

In Violation of City Code

After 83 years, Battan Community Center is in jeopardy of being permanently closed and sold.  Because of substandard conditions in the building, Beyond Baseball cannot pass inspection for the free meals that we serve our children. Beyond Baseball coordinates all events at the center and pays rent to the West Dallas Community Center Board. For months, the Board has ignored Beyond Baseball’s requests to fix roof leaks and to eliminate large patches of mold and mildew on the ceiling and walls. The Board is in violation of a City of Dallas Code Compliance order to fix the building’s problems by June 9.


Please attend our La Bajada Neighborhood Community Association Meeting to find out how you can help save our community center.
