Los Tigres Baseball

Rafael Gross - Manager

 The Dugout Baseball Academy, which opened its doors in 2008, is home to Los Tigres Baseball.  Coach Raffi Gross began training players in the Houston area in 2006, focusing on the fundamentals he was taught as a kid in the Dominican Republic.  He brings his years as a professional player and coach to Los Tigres, ensuring players are optimally prepared for high-level, competitive baseball for young players just entering competitive baseball, through HS baseball, and beyond. 

Los Tigres Coaching Staff

 Los Tigres coaching staff is a unique mix of coaches, who work together with one goal:  preparing and developing their athletes for competitive baseball.  

All former MLB and college players, coaches Wilmy, Jusef and Manny were taught by the same fundamentals, training and development as coach Raffi - the Dominican way. Both coaches Wilmy and Jesse played together through college, before joining the coaching staff.  The coach's ability to translate their expertise into the way they train their athletes allows for consistency throughout the training, development and coaching of our players and teams. 

Los Tigres Training & Development

Los Tigres Baseball is unlike any other organization.  With a strong belief of consistent, intensive training, each team's practices are attended by all Los Tigres coaches, to provide the training and expertise needed to fully develop each player in their specific position(s).  With a coaching staff of former professional pitchers, catchers, and position players, members of Los Tigres are provided an optimal training environment  required for success on the field.
