FBTexans Welcome Guest Coach Dominic Ramos, INF Sugar Land Skeeters
Dominic Ramos grew up learning Texas Hardball. He played for the Panthers at Pflugerville High and in the summers for the Austin SLAM. Dom developed into a premier infielder and pitcher. He received All-District and All-Centex honors. In 2001 Ramos continued developing in Texas and was awarded a scholarship to Texas State University. There Ramos continued his hard work ethic and became known for his solid defense, his command of the zone on the mound, and his ability to compete at the plate. He graduated with a business degree in finance.
Ramos began his professional career with the Boston Red Sox. After two years with Red Sox, Ramos started his Independent baseball career. Here on the road less traveled, Ramos spent the last seven seasons reinventing himself, reaching to play his best and to give back to the community. He also played winter seasons in Mexico and Australia where Ramos found higher caliber players. In 2012, Ramos made it to the Atlantic League, playing for the Sugar Land Skeeters and Gary Gaetti. Last season Ramos was named an Atlantic League All-Star and given the honor of “Skeeters Community Man of the Year.”
Ramos sees value in the fast track as well as the road of self discovery. In the off season you can find Ramos running around town giving lessons, working with teams, and coaching tournaments. His passion is helping young and old players break through areas of the game that hold them back so they can become complete and fundamentally sound ball players.
None of this would be possible without Dom’s faith in God and the support of his family. He encourages others to find strength in Christ, family, and community as they pursue their dreams.
