Pioneer League


David G. Elmore is owner and founder of Elmore Sports Group, a sports and entertainment company started in 1969 composed of Minor League Baseball clubs (Colorado Springs Sky Sox, San Antonio Missions, Inland Empire 66ers, Idaho Falls Chukars and Eugene Emeralds); hockey and soccer teams; and facility management, hospitality, special events, and concession companies. Elmore Sports Group also owns travel and incentive companies that specialize in Olympic, World Cup soccer and other sporting events. David's entrepreneurial spirit expanded to many companies beyond sports. He began investing in real estate in Vail, Colorado, in the 1970s and expanded into travel, life insurance, hotels and manufacturing.

Since 1991, Elmore has served on the Joint Professional Baseball Agreement Committee. This committee is composed of four Minor League owners and four Major League owners, and together they work to identify and address issues that arise between both leagues and to discuss possible amendments to the Professional Baseball Agreement. Throughout his career, Elmore has been a strong supporter of local, state and national politics.

Elmore, born in Anderson, Indiana, graduated from Indiana University Business School in 1955 and obtained his CPA certificate while attending law school. After graduating from law school, Elmore was a partner with McBride, Baker, Wienke and Schlosser in Chicago from 1958 to 1968. For Dave Elmore, "Minor League Sports" is an opportunity to strengthen community and family values across the country while providing family entertainment at affordable prices.
