10U Bergman Runner Up – Available Roster Spots & Upcoming Tryout

10U Dallas Tigers started their short Fall season strong by finishing 2nd in the Tara Sawyer 10U Open tournament, going 5-1 for the weekend. “I was very pleased with the way the boys competed all weekend, especially considering we are just a couple of weeks into a short Fall season. To see this type of progress in a condensed period of time and without a full roster is very promising for the team,” said coach Brett Bergman.

Tryout — Thursday @ 6 PM

This 10U Majors team has a couple of open roster spots to fill for the Fall/Spring and will be having a tryout this Thursday at 6 PM at Tiger field. Contact Brett directly at (817) 846-5420 or brett.bergman@dallastigersbaseball.com if you are interested in being part of the Dallas Tigers.

9U Dallas Tigers Start Strong in First Kid Pitch Tourney

In their first kid pitch baseball game of their lives, the 9U Dallas Tigers take it all the way to the championship at Tara Sawyer baseball tournament!  The team went 1-1 in pool play and came out strong in bracket play on Sunday winning 3 straight to get to the championship (4th game of the day).  They finished the weekend with their first 6 games of their careers and a runner-up trophy against strong competition.

“We achieved our objective this weekend by playing 6 games in a weekend,” commented coach Polk.  “Most people think our objective is to win tournaments, but the reality is that it doesn’t serve the team or player development well to have that approach.  We may win some tourney’s and that is great when it happens, but our objective is to play as many games in a weekend as possible and the goal is to make every player better than they were before the weekend started.”

Coach Polk went on to say, “I’m very proud of the progress these kids have made in the last 4 weeks of practices and to see them get even better this weekend is encouraging.  We’ve introduced a mountain of high school and college level elements to them in a very short amount of time and these 9 year olds amaze us at what they can pick-up.  Really looking forward to watching them progress.”

Congratulations boys and nice work!!
