Team Summary

Coach Tom McPherson and his Katy Tigers come into the 2021 season looking to make a run in the playoffs after exiting in the second round in 2019.

Coach McPherson also hopes to return another quality arm in 2021 RHP Fernando Garza (Texas A&M Commit) who is recovering from an injury sustained during football season. Returning in the lineup is 2021 1B/OF Ryan Brome (Alvin Commit), 2021 RHP/3B Aiden Huerta (Blinn Commit), 2021 RHP/SS Caleb Matthews (Rice Commit), 2021 RHP/C Jack Johnson (Youngstown State Signee), 2022 C/DH Bryce Nirider and 2021 OF Aidan McKinney.
