Merry Christmas and Happy New Year / 2021 Brings New Spring Teams and a Brand New Baseball Facility to the Dawgs
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Texas Dawgs. We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and is looking forward to starting our Spring 2021 baseball season just after the New Year.
While 2020 has been regrettable in so many ways, the Dawgs were lucky enough to have an outstanding inaugural year. We are so humbled by the positive response from so many to our organization and can’t believe in one year we have gone from 2 to 8 teams. This growth will not change, but will only enhance our efforts at player development on and off the field, communication and transparency.
We are very excited about what 2021 will bring for the Dawgs organization both on and off the field, including the opening of TD Sports Academy the Dawgs indoor/outdoor training facility home in February. More info on that in the coming weeks, but needless to say we are getting very excited about it.
We are so very appreciative and thankful for all of our coaches, players and families and everyone that has helped us launch and make this organization special. We believe it is the people and families involved that create the environment and culture that make people want to join the Dawgs.
Hoping this holiday season brings our Dawgs family a time of peace, joy and rest. Please try to trade time from our crazy world to enjoy family and friends, even if it is virtually because of the virus. We hope everyone can take time to remember special times of the past, make new memories and look forward to what is to come in the New Year, especially Dawgs baseball.
Bring it on 2021, the Dawgs are ready. Our theme for the new year is “Culture Matters” and you will be seeing that on our 2021 season t-shirt we will unveil next week.
The Dawgs want to commend the hospitality of the entire Skeeters staff that made the experience truly unforgettable for the entire team. Thank you to Chad for arranging the event and Sherine for providing the photography.
There are many very special and pure things about the great game of baseball, chief among those things is the way the love of the game is passed between fathers and sons.
Our Dawgs family has so many special dad/player, granddad/player, stepdad/player relationships and today we want to celebrate all of our dads, granddads and stepdads by wishing them a great and enjoyable Father’s Day and thanking them for all they do to support our Texas Dawgs organization.
Our gift to our dads/granddads and stepdads is that their sons and grandsons will be on the field this Father’s Day weekend advancing that special bond by playing the game.
Enjoy every minute of it and always remember to tell your player how much you love to watch them play. Go Dawgs!!!!
The plan was always to continue to grow our organization and try to field additional teams that share in our core beliefs and values. We are very pleased to announce this addition and hope to continue to grow our footprint in terms of teams and, hopefully, facilities.
Please join the coaches and me in welcoming Coach Tyler to the Dawgs Family.
Part of the mission of the Texas Dawgs is developing excellence on and off the field. None of that excellence is possible without a great example at home to model.
We know that we have the best moms and we are so thankful for all they do to raise the quality players that we have in our organization.
We are always aware, even if we don’t say thanks every day, of the countless trips back and forth to the field, all the dirty laundry, making sure all the gear is in the bags, packing the coolers for the baseball weekends and screaming cheers from the stands.
So on their special day, we want to say thanks and let them know how special they are. We appreciate all you do and we love you so much. Happy Mother’s Day to all of our moms, step moms and grand mothers.
When the Texas Dawgs were founded, we adopted a Mission Statement and Core values, which included a focus on the importance of giving back to the communities in which we play and understanding the value of service in building young men of character.
In adopting these standards and values, we require all of our players to perform community service in order to be a part of our organization. For our spring season, our first service project was gather equipment donations for The Recycled Baseball Items Foundation (RBI) and Recycled Sports Items (RSI), fellow non-profit organizations.
RBI and RSI are committed to keeping the Greater Houston Area's underprivileged youth off the streets, away from gangs, crime, and drugs, while offering them a positive and viable alternative in the form of participation in baseball/softball and other sports.
RBI accomplishes this by providing baseball, basketball, football and other sports equipment, instructional sports clinics and college scholarships to those who are exemplary in both academics and sports.
To support the cause of RBI and RSI, the Texas Dawgs engaged in a month long equipment drive requesting that players and families donate lightly used sports goods. On March 15th, RBI and RSI Foundation (RBI) picked up the items gathered by the Dawgs.
The Dawgs Organization donated over 150 items to RBI and RSI. The items donated included gloves, bats, helmets, catcher’s gear, cleats, pants, protective gear and training aids. We are hopeful these items will help further the outstanding mission of RBI and RSI.
We are so proud of our players and their families for their commitment to this project and their desire to support our community. Our players are truly “Embracing the Standard” of what it means to be a Texas Dawg!!! We are looking forward to our next community service project.

Rubble the Stud
Rubble the English Bulldog owned by "Head Honcho" came into the competition as a heavy favorite and his voters sure did not disappoint. That baseball playing, backwards hat-wearing fierce fella sure looks like a Texas Dawg, doesn't he?
Rubble smashed the competition, however Henry made a late surge to make it competitive. It seems as if people wanted a real mascot to resemble the Texas Dawgs logo, we can’t blame them!
Congratulations Rubble, you earned it! Now go out there and Play Like a Dawg Today! You are a dog, but you are now the Texas Dawg!
A Special Thank You
A special thank you to all of the players, parents and friends of the Texas Dawgs who made this a special contest. Be sure to check out the contestants and let them know they are all winners!
One thing is for sure, the possibilities are endless when we roll into other states; The South Bend Goldendoodles, the Florida Shih Tzus, the Boston Beagles, The Pennsylvania Pit Bulls, The Wyoming Wiener Dogs, The St. Louis Silver Labradors, the Virginia Goats, etc.
The future is bright! Spread the news far and wide everyone!!! Rubble and the Texas Dawgs are coming...and we're bringing company!
