Founder, RTG Baseball Academy
Coach Fish graduated from Klein HS in 2007 and went on to play at Oklahoma City University. At OCU his teams went 57-12, 53-9, 50-16, 47-12, and 48-12, totaling 255-61 for his career and were always ranked in the top 5 in the country, with many holds at number 1. They went to the NAIA World Series every year he was there, so he holds the record for most world series appearances in school history. He was a 2-time Conference Gold Glove winner, earned first-team All-Conference accolades at second base, and was named on the All-tournament team in the world series. He was also a 2-time Academic All-American. His sophomore year he hit .396 in 202 at bats with 11 home runs and a .457 on base percentage. Coach Fish started coaching for fun in 2012, while working for the Houston Astros front office. As his passion for coaching grew, so did the amount of players he was surrounded by. He felt he needed to be on the field mentoring and coaching players, so he opened up RTG in the fall of 2014. Fish has always tried to donate his time and give back to the game and started by taking on a role at Northland Christian HS from 2016-2019 as the assistant varsity head coach where he helped build the program and win the 2019 Tapps division 3 state championship. In 2019 he was then hired on at the University of St. Thomas as the director of player development where he has and is still helping build the new college program. He has also helped run the Klein middle school prep teams and has gotten to associate scout for the Astros. Fish’s mentor and assistant coach Keith Lytle at OCU always taught his players that if you want to be professional, you have to act professional. That has always been his goal for RTG. He wants their players to be great young men who are held accountable every day. When Derek Jeter retired, they asked him what his main goal was over his 20 year career. He said, “All I ever wanted to do was RESPECT THE GAME”. When Fish heard this, along with his teaching from the OCU coaches, he knew the RTG name had to be born. Fish currently lives in the downtown, Houston area and is married to Christie Fisher.

Sam is another Klein High School graduate that we have added to the coaching staff starting summer 2018. Landis was recruited for both his heavy bat and arm and went on to play at Louisiana Tech University where he was converted to a full time pitcher.
