Debbie Brooks has been a minor league executive.

Debbie Brooks was the first female General Manager in the Florida State League with the Tampa Tarpons in 1987. With more than 27 years in professional baseball, her career is fueled daily by her natural, genuine passion for the game. In 1997, she went to work for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, now the Tampa Bay Rays, where she boasts nearly an 18-year career, serving currently as Merchandise Manager. Debbie feels unbelievably lucky to work for the Rays organization and reflects equally as proud on her days in the FSL. Starting with a two-month internship with then-general manager Mike Moore, Debbie had an eight-year career with the Tarpons. Debbie enjoys memories of Al Lopez Field, the ballpark where she got her start, including being married on home plate in 1988. Her most treasured reward from her time with the FSL are the friendships that she continues to enjoy today. Debbie once said of baseball, "It's not just a game. It's family."
