Dallas Tiger 18U Open Tryout December 11th

Good morning,

I would like to invite you to my Dallas Tigers 18U Tryout on December 11th at 1pm.

Location will be at 1301 Wrangler Cir Coppell, TX 75019

We are looking for kids that have athletic ability, determination to get better, want to be seen by college and pro scouts as we are doing college showcases and pro showcases only.  We will play in the qualifier for the 18U World Series but our main focus is college showcases and pro showcases.

Practices and early work before games will be mandatory as this is a player development system and college preparation for when you leave for school.

You will have a player development manual for which position you play to get better and Videos to enhance your skills.

We will condition also as a team.  Pitchers will come at a certain time before games and practices.  Video and stats will be sent to college coaches as well.

I’m encouraging 16 and up to come tryout as well.  If you are good enough, you will be put on my team.  You do not have to be 18 to come get the experience and exposure you deserve.

See you December 11th at 1pm.

Coach Thorpe comes to the Dallas Tigers with an extensive baseball background. He has coached at a high level of select baseball for many years and most recently had 8 former players drafted in the last two MLB drafts.

Coach Thorpe played his major league career with the Texas Rangers organization. Prior to playing for the Rangers, he went to college at The University of Texas at Arlington. Coach Thorpe is a member of UTA Baseball Hall of Fame and still holds long standing base running records there. He also won three national championships as a player. Coach Thorpe’s son Randall currently plays for the Chicago White Soxs minor league team.

His philosophy on coaching is to teach players sound fundamentals and how to play the game, both physically and mentally, in preparation for taking the player to the next level. The goal for his U13 team is to get his youngplayers ready for High School baseball. Once in High School, to use his many contacts in baseball to take the team on show case tournaments to different colleges.
