Owner RTG Baseball
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 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 teams 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 in 2012 as a hobby, 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 the players, so he opened up RTG in the fall of 2014. Since then, Fish has also taken a role at Northland Christian HS as the assistant varsity head coach. He also helps run the Klein middle school prep teams and does some scouting for the Astros on the side. 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 is 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.

Tyler was hired on as pitching coach at the end of the 2017 summer. He grew up in California, starting his college career at UC Irvine, transferred to Yavapai Junior College, and finished his last 2 college years, pitching at Baylor University. He was in the Marlins organization when he met Eric Fisher, but he also so happened to meet his wife at Baylor who went to Klein HS and who was childhood friends with Coach Eric. We are very excited to have Tyler leading our pitching staff. He threw 5 years professionally making it all the way to AAA and knows how to get our pitchers there. He roves around to all of our age groups, helping our pitchers as well as doing individual lessons.

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.
