Over 400 Kids Try out for Dallas Tigers

Thats right over 400 turned out for the 2010-2011 Dallas Tigers Baseball Club Tryout!!! First we want to thank all the volunteers and instructors that gave their weekend to making this club tryouts a huge success. We have some of the greatest people in our club and the turnout this past weekend proved that.

Next thank you to all the parents who brought their son for this incredible experience. I hope every player had a great experience and is able to grow from it whether a Tiger this year, next year or in the future.

Finally, we had boys and young men giving it their all and that shows lots of character. Parents you should be proud of your boys for their efforts and willingness to compete. This is at the core of what motivates us everyday to help kids learn the game. Keep up the hard work no matter what.

Team instructors will be reaching out to their prospects for roster confirmations over the coming weeks.

Welcome New Instructor Coy Polk 9U 2010-2011

We’d like to welcome back a truly original Tiger Alum in Coy Polk.  Coy was on the first ever Dallas Tigers baseball team in 1993 when Tommy Hernandez first formed the club! Coy will be the head instructor for 9U 2010-2011 season.  We are excited to have him return as an instructor in the club and bring his knowledge of baseball and the club to young players.

“It is always exciting to have former players return to coach our current players,” commented Tommy Hernandez, club President.  “Coy brings with him a deep understanding of our club and what we work to accomplish in the development goals of our players.  Mix that with his extensive extensive college baseball career as well as college baseball coaching and we have a real valuable addition to our club.”

Coy Polk baseball highlights:

  • – 4 year varsity letterman at Coppell High School (CHS)
  • – All Area catcher 3 years at CHS
  • – Dallas Tigers Player (Catcher, Pitcher, OF) 1993 – 2000
  • – Drafted by Minnesota Twins out of high school 32nd round
  • – Navarro Junior College 2000-2002
  • – All-Conference 2001 as a closer
  • – Abilene Christian University (ACU) 2002-2004
  • – 2004 First Team All Lone Star Conference Pitcher
  • – #7 All Time in games pitched at ACU (in just 2 years)
  • – #5 All Time career saves leader
  • – #3 All Time single season saves leader
  • – ACU Assistant Baseball Coach and Pitching Instructor 2004 – 2006

New 7U Tigers Team Forming!!

This year we’ll have our youngest Dallas Tigers team ever!  We will have a 7U team for the 2010 – 2011 season.  Instructing this team will be Chad Polk.  Coach Polk has been involved with the club since 1993 and played baseball through college (Howard JC & Baylor), drafted twice by major leagues (Angels & Blue Jays), and played in the Toronto Blue Jays minor league system.  In the 2009-2010 season he coached the 9U age group and will move up with them as well this fall.

With a first year team he got his players into 10 tournament championship games out of 15 played over the last 12 months.  “What Chad did with a first year team this season has only been done a couple of times in the 16 years of our club history,” said Tommy Hernandez, club President.  “The results is a reflection of how he taught the game to his players.  Being competitive in bracket play affords your team more games, more at-bats, more plays, and ultimately more player development.”
