Great job boys on a total team effort!!!

Game one of the bracket they beat the Frisco Riders – Cruz, 9-4.  Jaden Hill had a breakout pitching performance giving up only 1 hit through 4 innings of work and struck out 6 and JC Davis came in to close giving up no hits and no runs.  The championship game was a rematch with their only pool play loss to the Dallas Texans – Lowe.  The Tigers showed grit and were ready for the rematch.  Quality at-bats and solid pitching were the difference in the 10-6 win over the Dallas Texans.  Kade Sweckard provided 4 quality innings of work and Jonah McCormack came in and shut the door with 2 full innings of work giving up no runs, no hits, and striking out 3.

Congratulations boys!  Nice work.

9U Jared Thomas and Walker Polk Selected as TBS All-Americans

Travel Ball Select (TBS) chose 2 players from the 9U Dallas Tigers for the All-America Team, Jared Thomas and Walker Polk!  Jared was selected based on his offensive performance and as a first baseman.  Walker was selected based on his offensive performance and as a catcher.  Jared and Walker were 2 of only 20 players nationally to make the list.

“The 2013 9U Tigers had a number of players who could have made this list, but for these 2 to make it is a great acknowledgement of their performance.  What the list doesn’t show is how good of team players these kids are.  They both love competing with this team and they’ll be fun to watch grow up over the years,” commented coach Chad Polk.

Congratulations Jared and Walker!

Kyle Woods & Chad Polk Forming NEW 12U Team

The Dallas Tigers Baseball Club will be forming a new 12U baseball team for the 2013-2014 season.  Kyle Woods & Chad Polk will be the assigned instructors for this team.

Kyle Woods Dallas Tigers BaseballMr. Woods already has a proven track record of building championship teams.  Starting in 2011 his team won 5 tournament championships.  Then in 2012 Kyle’s team went 69-15-2 on the year (fall/spring/summer), played in 14 championship games out of 16 tournaments played, and won 6 championships.  Currently in 2013, his team is 48-6, played in 9 championship games with 6 tourney wins so far, and now ranked #4 in the United States.  Mr. Woods has been providing full-time private baseball instruction for 4 years.

Kyle is also a Dallas Tiger Alum and one that “grew up” in the club.  He played 9 years with the Tigers before going on to college baseball.

Chad Polk - Dallas Tigers BaseballMr. Polk has been around the Dallas Tigers Baseball Club since 1993 with his younger brother, Coy, on the original Tiger team.  Chad played at Howard Junior College and was drafted in the 13th round by the California Angels.  Forgoing pro baseball, he chose to attend Baylor University on baseball scholarship.  Chad was even fortunate enough to play in the Cape Cod League in Massachusetts.  He continued on to pro baseball with the Toronto Blue Jays.

As an instructor for the Dallas Tigers, Chad has coached teams in countless championship games.  He has coached in a number of National Championship games from Triple Crown Steamboat, CO and Super Series Texas to AABC and Cooperstown New York.

This is an extremely rare and very unique situation …I have 2 of my best instructors coaching the same team.  If I’m a parent with a player in this age group it would be an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.  I have no doubt Kyle and Chad will have this team competing on a national level in no time!
