Tigers History Over 50 years of player development

The foundation of Memphis Tigers Baseball’s rich tradition began in 1966, when Don Mills and Johnny Galbreath formed the Davis Park Tigers youth baseball team. The Davis Park Tigers competed in a local little league and played a competitive schedule consisting of over 50 games. In 1969, the dream of creating an organization dedicated to mentoring young athletes through the game of baseball became a reality when Keith Hagan, Don Mills, Frank Donato and Bob Chase chartered the East Memphis Boys Athletic Association (“EMBAA”). As a nonprofit organization, the EMBAA provided the opportunity and financial resources necessary to create multiple teams which competed under the name East Memphis Tigers. The organization experienced rapid growth and over whelming success during the 1970’s and ultimately changed the name to the Memphis Boys Athletic Association to reflect the ever expanding community that was represented by the organization.

The Memphis Boys Athletic Association (“MBAA”) is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization carrying on the goal of developing young athletes by teaching and instilling the time honored virtues of discipline, sportsmanship, integrity and pride through competitive baseball.

The MBAA and its representative teams playing under the Memphis Tigers banner have achieved unparalleled success competing on a national scale. Both the organization and its teams have become a nationally recognized powerhouse program. The Memphis Tigers teams continue to win State, Regional and National Championships, in various age divisions, across many baseball associations.

The Memphis Tigers success has paved the way for hundreds of young baseball players to excel at the high school, college and professional level. Throughout the years, a significant number of Memphis Tigers players have earned scholarships, from an array of colleges and universities, with programs participating at all levels, including Division I, Division II, Division III, NAIA and Junior College. Numerous Memphis Tigers players have also been selected in the Major League Baseball Draft and have enjoyed tremendous success at both the Minor and Major League levels.

For nearly five decades, the Memphis Tigers have flourished from a depth of coaching talent comprised of former players and longtime coaches. These passionate individuals are honored to be “giving back” to the organization that help shape their lives as baseball players and young men. Memphis Tigers Alumni are a proud fraternity of former players and coaches that share enduring memories and lifelong relationships.

Today, the Memphis Tigers serve over 200 players ranging in age from 8 to 18 consisting of players from the entire Mid-South area.

Don’t walk through life just playing baseball. Don’t walk through life just being an athlete. Athletics will fade. Character and integrity and really making an impact on someone’s life, that’s the ultimate vision, that’s the ultimate goal – bottom line. Character and integrity and really making an impact on someone’s life.
