    Very simply put, it is extremely hard to earn an athletic scholarship of any amount (2%) and even many Division I athletes (41%) play the sport without an athletic scholarship.


    Easton Tigers director Kirk Hawkins presents Cesar Tovar with a pitching machine and bucket of baseballs from Academy Sports for his Yankees-Tigers program in Venezuela.

    CONGRATS TO PETER FAIRBANKS

    By Kirk Hawkins 10/23/2020, 12:00pm CDT

    Rays pitcher Peter Fairbanks was the 2008 SLABA All-Star Game MVP for the St. Louis Tigers

    Congrats to Peter Fairbanks and the Tampa Bay Rays for making it to the World Series.  Peter played for the Tigers and was the 2008 SLABA 14U All-Star Game MVP.

    He is the first former Tiger to make it to the World Series!

    Peter battled back from two Tommy John surgeries to earn his spot in the MLB. 

    You can read one account of his dedicated battle through the grueling process from Ross Clites, a former Gamers' coach and All-Star Performance instructor that also worked with Easton Tigers pitchers:

    JOEY KELLEY HITS 5 HR IN 2 DAYS

    By Kirk Hawkins 09/01/2020, 6:45pm CDT

    Team finished as runner-up in extra-inning championship

    The 13U Black Easton Tigers were powered by Joey Kelley in their second place finish in the Gametime Fall Slugfest Tournament on Aug. 29-30.  Kelley smashed all previous Easton Tigers tournament records by hitting 5 home runs in the weekend. 

    The Easton squad beat the Bandits in the tournament opener by a score of 10-1.  Kelley had 4 RBI.  Game two was an 11-0 combined no-hitter over the Rebels.  In bracket play on Sunday, the Tigers claimed the lead in the third inning to defeat the O'Fallon Cardinals 11-1.  In the championship game, Easton had a 4-1 lead with the winning run on third, but failed to score.  They ended up tying the game and going into extra innings before falling to the Illinois Sun Devils by a score of 11-8.

    Congrats to Michael Altobella who hit a grand slam, as well.  Great job to all our Easton Tigers 13u Black players and coaches.

    CARACAS TIGERS TEAM STARTS WITH 8 WINS!

    By Kirk Hawkins 04/13/2016, 2:15pm CDT

    Coach Cesar Tovar's "Yankees-Tigers" team undefeated

    The Easton St. Louis Tigers organization is fortunate enough to sponsor Coach Cesar Agosto Tovar's youth baseball team in Caracas, Venezuela.  The team was named the Yankees, but Coach Tovar asked for them to add the Tigers to it, so they are now called the Yankees-Tigers.

    Our Easton Tigers organization donated jerseys for Coach Tovar's team in the fall when he returned to Venezuela.  Coach Tovar reports that, "The uniforms you gave to my team, brought us luck, encouragement and confidence.  We have played 8 games with these uniforms and we have won all, so thank you again!"

    Great job - but we believe they've been winning because of the excellent training and fundamentals provided by Coach Tovar and his staff!  Keep up the good work!

    16U GREY WINS 2ND MO USSSA STATE TITLE

    By Kirk Hawkins 06/28/2015, 6:00pm CDT

    Team repeats as state champions in Webb Park tourney

    The Easton STL Tigers 16U Grey team came from behind in their first pool game to win then never looked back, as they went on to win their second consecutive USSSA Missouri State Championship June 28th in Oak Grove, MO. 

    After winning the AA State Championship in 2014, they were automatically moved up to the AAA level for 2015.  Their pool victories over the Red Devils and KC Blue Rocks gave them a bye before their title match with Grandview's Wully Bully.

    The Tigers defeated Wully Bully 7-5 for the AAA MO State title on Sunday to bring home the hardware.  The Grey team is coached by veteran coaches Eric Estes and Paul McKee.

    This marks the fifth consecutive year that the Easton Tigers organization has had a USSSA State Championship title.  In 2011, the 15U Black team became the first Tigers team to win the tournament.  There have also been two second place finishes during that time.
