“ Thanks Aaron. Yes, we were running on fumes that last game. We've had two early tourneys now and took 2nd in both. We've done the Premium Tigers Package the last two years and Mike Tyson has spent a lot of time working with our kids on hitting. It's rewarding to see a group of 10 year olds improve. I credit Mike for a lot of that success. He has so much knowledge yet manages to keep it simple and fun for the boys. We love being a part of the Tigers and appreciate all of the great instructors like Mike that help our kids get better. ”

“ First of all...your organization is a class act. I let everyone in your office know that today while I was there. My son was able to realize what a great atmosphere he was a part of last year and knew it was special and rare in this day and age. Thank you for allowing him to play for your club. The club validated that he can play at that level and compete. We can't thank the Rawlings Tigers organization enough for the opportunity you gave Shaun and all the encouragement during the season. He said on the last day of the season in Texas that it was the most enjoyable season he has ever had. Thank you so much for your time, effort and dedication not only to Shaun, but to all the boys. ”

“ Collin really enjoyed playing with the team this year, I know the past three years with his other summer teams he didn't enjoy as much as this year. He said the team played well together and they all got along together. To me that goes back to you and the Tigers organization, especially the coaches. Collin really enjoyed the coaches, they helped him out a lot and provided him with their knowledge of the game. Also, Collin really got a lot out of the winter workouts this past winter. One more item, I just want to tell you how I appreciate all of your help prior to the season on the recruiting end, you were very helpful in all aspects of that process. I hope you will be able to see Collin at one of his college games. Thanks again to you and the Tigers. ”

“ Aaron & Shannon, Another year with the Tigers. My son Ethan and I are excited to be back for the 4th year with your organization. We just finished the season Saturday and found out on Tuesday that Ethan made the 16U White. I have been amazed from day one how organized you and your staff are every year. I feel my son is getting the best training in St. Louis. We are proud to be Tigers. Curtis Smith was Ethan's coach last year and again this year. We are excited about that also. He is great with the team and it really shows when I watch them play. Zac was also great with his intensity and knowledge of the game. Keep up the good work. ”

“ First we want to say that the 15U Grey has been a great team this year. The chemistry of the kids, parents and coaches have been a real treat. Not sure if Coach Calhoun and Coach Reidt will be moving up to 16U but it would be great for the boys. They have done an excellent job teaching, encouraging and having fun with the boys. Derek has really enjoyed his season and feels like he has been valued as a team member. Thanks for that.  ”

“ The Webbs are going to miss the Tigers as well. Between my 17 years of coaching and the many teams we have played for and against, not a single one compares to the Rawlings Tigers organization. You have created a program that goes beyond what would have ever been expected. From your professionalism, friendship, and desire to see these young boys and men succeed we could not have asked for anything better.  ”

“ Thanks for giving Michael the opportunity to play for the Tigers! Playing on the 15U Orange team, it has been a great experience for him. The boys on this team have been outstanding in all ways. Not only are they skilled, but they play with enthusiasm and pick each other up throughout the games. They are a very cohesive group. Such a great group of young men! Their coaches, Coach Herrick and Coach Walker, have done a great job with the boys. The boys look up to them and have enjoyed playing for them.  Our experience with the Rawlings Tigers organization has been very positive and rewarding due to the professionalism of your entire staff.  GO TIGERS!!! ”

“ Good morning Aaron- I would have sent this at the end of season but I'm feeling this may be a good time now. I wanted to let you know that we couldn't be happier with coach Mike and coach Tommy at 15u black. They handle encouragement and correction so well. We are so happy for Jack to be in such good hands. They worry about all the right things for development! That's what we care about. ”

“ Jaws, My wife and I as well as Seth of course really appreciate all you have done for him and for us and we could not think of anything or anywhere that would change our mind about your organization.

“ Spiker, I truly appreciate your willingness to come and look at our program and get to know us as mules and what makes us tick. I hope that some of the coversation leads to a better understanding for your players of who we are and what it takes to have success in baseball at our level or any other level they choose to play at.  I think it's great that you are giving college baseball in the Midwest a mouthpiece on social media and I'm so happy you decided to choose UCM.  ”

“ Thanks for everything you do for the Tigers...can't imagine a better organization to be with, from both a player and parents perspective. When I look back over the past three years it is amazing how far you've taken this in a short period of time. Lots to look forward to, and am glad we made the decision to stay with the Tigers. ”

“ I would just like to let you know that my son Brady is thrilled to be a Tiger on your 5 Yr old team and is having a blast. Being an umpire out at Chesterfield I have the opportunity to umpire a lot of different teams and organizations. I can tell you that all of the Tigers and Indians games that I have done this year(been a lot) both the coaches and the players handle themselves with such class. Winning or lossing, I do not hear anything disrespectfull towards the umpires or the other teams. I cannot say the same for all the club teams out there but I wanted you to know you have a first class organization and your teams are a joy to work with. ”

“ Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you letting Nick have a shot at the team. As you know we have played with several "elite" teams in the area, but nothing compares to this organization. We are really impressed with the entire organizations commitment to the players and their families. The events that you have recently put on were outstanding. Thanks again. ”

“ Thanks for the information. I cannot tell you what a great help you have been in keeping Dave, Luke, and I informed on how to help with getting into college baseball and keeping us updated on everything. The information you have been giving us has been a very good resource. I just wish we had all this insight earlier when Luke was younger. But you live and learn. Thanks for all your help. Go Tigers! ”
