Los Tigres Baseball teams are lead by Rafael Gross, and run through The Dugout Baseball Academy. The purpose of Los Tigres teams is to provide athletes the opportunity for professional baseball training by a unique group of former college and Dominican MLB players, using the same methods of training techniques and player development with fundamentals and skills that the coaches have acquired through their time in the college and the Dominican, as amateur athletes, and throughout their professional careers in the MLB. They continue their Dominican tradition of teaching the young, taught to them by the players of the Dominican before them, to prepare each player for an elite level of baseball, in preparation for high school and beyond.
Los Tigres coaches believe it takes a team to train a team. For that reason, they use their individual playing experience and expertise in the positions they played throughout their careers, to teach and train their athletes on the field.

Los Tigres players are from all over the greater Houston area, as well as other areas of Texas. Players for Los Tigres have had the opportunity to represent their respective little leagues at state, regional and Little League World Series tournaments; their respective high schools at local and state levels; and at regional and national events for USA Baseball.
The success of the players could only be made possible by the dedication of the players and coaches, and the fantastic baseball families we have been blessed to work with.
It truly makes Los Tigres teams one of a kind.
