Sioux Falls GOLD Owner

Don “Deke” Karras

Deke Karras has been a life-long baseball player and enthusiast.  After retirement from a long career as vice president for a Fortune 500 company, Deke has dedicated his retirement years to promoting, developing, supporting and advancing baseball play and players at all levels, and from all walks.

Deke has been a player in and sponsor for local and national senior baseball competition for the past two decades, and recently was elected to the Colorado Over 60 Baseball Hall of Fame.  Deke’s latest (and favorite) baseball activity is the simple joy of throwing batting practice to the Sioux Falls Gold.
