Dallas Tigers Announce New Director for Tigers North

Robbie Nicholson to lead Dallas Tigers North through next phase of player development

DALLAS, TEXAS, October 1, 2017: The Dallas Tigers Baseball Club, founded in 1993 and a nationally recognized baseball organization focused on player development, is pleased to announce that we have appointed Robbie Nicholson as the new director of Dallas Tigers-North (Frisco) effective immediately.

Robbie’s appointment shows the commitment that the Dallas Tigers have for Frisco and the surrounding areas. “Promoting Robbie to director of the Frisco area will enable all Tiger players more exposure to showcase events and most importantly all the college recruiting benefits of being a Dallas Tiger with regional colleges near Dallas as well as colleges around the country,” stated Tommy Hernandez, President of the Dallas Tigers Baseball Club. “I have total confidence in Robbie excelling in the development of players and operating Tiger teams.”

Nicholson grew up in Irving and played his college baseball at Baylor and UTA. Previously he coached with the Dallas Tigers and Forney High School for four years where Forney was a state finalist for three of those four years. Afterward, Robbie coached at Bishop Lynch where they were a TAAP’s state finalist. Nicholson also was the director of the Dallas Patriots North for three years. Robbie’s ability to manage a baseball operation and carry-on the club’s mission of player development brings tremendous value to the Dallas Tigers and their families.

“This fall, college recruiting has been at an all time high for our club. Our high school teams have showcased at TCU, Texas, OU, Baylor and ORU,” commented Tommy Hernandez. “We still have an underclass Perfect Game event at Ft. Myers and an upper-class Jupiter showcase event this month for our players as well.  The PG Jupiter Florida event is the most heavily recruited showcase in the country, and we’ve been on the invite list for over 15 years. Working with these colleges and universities in our region for 25 years has paid huge dividends to our current players and families.”

14U Polk are Champs at MidSouth Select 30 in Mississippi

What a weekend for Dallas Tigers 14U Polk who went out to Southaven, Mississippi and brought home the hardware.  The Tigers had a tough road to sled after stubbing their toe in Game 1 of pool play on Saturday.  The Tigers came roaring back to run the table winning their next 6 games including beating Team Sandlot in the Championship.

“I cant put into words how proud I am of this team”, Coach Coy Polk commented.  “Our backs were against the wall and these guys showed everyone what they are made of.  They poured every ounce of energy into every game and played their tales off.  The best part of this Championship is no one will really understand what we went through to get there.  It was such a gutsy performance by everyone of those boys.  I think this TEAM proved to themselves what they’re capable of.  Absolutely amazing weekend.”

Way to represent the Dallas Tigers Organization fellas!!!  Keep on working hard!

12 Dallas Tiger Teams in Championships this Sunday

The Dallas Tigers Baseball Club represented this weekend across the Dallas Ft Worth Metroplex. Thirteen, yes 12, Dallas Tiger teams were in the championship game of their respective tournaments.

“It isn’t uncommon to have a number of our teams in the finals on same day, but 13 in one day! My GameChanger app started a fire on my phone following all these games,” said Tommy Hernandez, President of the Dallas Tigers Baseball Club.

“So proud for our club kids, their parents, and coaches. What it tells me is we as a club are moving these players forward. Coaches are coaching them up and players are putting in the time to make their teams better. It also confirms we are the go-to club in town to develop players.”

“One of our instructors pointed out that if a team averages 25 plate appearances per game and plays 5 games in a weekend, that is 125+ at-bats in a weekend for 1 team.  This weekend multiply that by 13 …likely over 1,625 at-bats for our guys.  Not to mention, 3 of those championships were Tiger teams playing each other.”

TCU Baseball Tour with Dallas Tigers

The TCU baseball program provided a tour of the facilities in Ft Worth at Lupton Baseball Stadium this past Saturday.  Since opening in 2003, the stadium has played host to conference tournaments, NCAA Regionals, and NCAA Super Regionals.  In the summer of 2015, construction began on a new Horned Frogs’ locker room, classroom, team lounge, sports medicine center, equipment room and coaches’ offices. The new facility, which was completed prior to the 2016 season, is located down the left-field line. A new state-of-the-art video board was also installed prior to the 2016 season. Additional seating was added behind the right field fence. Shrubbery was cleared out and a four-level terraced seating area was added where the old scoreboard resided.

The hitting facility alone is a 9,000 square foot area that includes four 80-foot long cages as well as indoor pitching mounds, a tee and toss area and the latest in video analysis software. The cage system will allow the coaching staff to maneuver the nets to allow for as many as eight players to hit at once or to set the facility up as one large cage for pitcher vs. hitter simulated games.

“First a huge thanks to Coach Kirk Sarloos for making the time to tour us, but even more how thorough and impressive their baseball operation is,” said Coach Tommy Hernandez.  “The ability to bring some of our players to see big time college baseball is special and is part of the development process.  Our guys were able to see baseball analytics, sophisticated video, hear about academics, nutrition, equipment, physical therapy, and more.”

Also, thank you to Coach Jim Schlossnagle and Coach Bill Mosiello.
