Dohlberg Tigers - "To our friends" (English Homepage)
At first let us apologize, that this is the only english page of our site.
The effort would be too big to maintain the whole site as well in English.
So please be satisfied with this single english page.
If you are interested in other content of our site, we assume, that you might
have some elementary knowledge of the german language, or at least the idea to learn a few words,
so you can practice it here !
Furthermore, pictures and numbers are international anyway, so feel invited to surf our
german content as well.
Generally, the Dohlberg Tigers Büdingen have a long and fruitfull history and friendship with
foreign - especially US American - team members.
During the past 25 years, more or less 30 US American Basketball players participated
in our teams.
Most of this team members originated from the US American
Büdingen Armstrong Kaserne
and unfortunately could spent only a few years here, before they had to move back or away again.
However, we had a lot of fun together and be sure, we keep you in honor !
Best greetings and wishes to you, if you happen to come across this page.
Other former team members initially came from the Kaserne, but have decided to stay in Büdingen
for longer time or for the rest of their life.
Some of them played a couple of years with the Tigers.
We specially should mention the "record holder" Herbert Balkcom, who has played about 15 years with us.
Special thanks to you, Herbert, you are "one of the souls" of the Tigers !
Furthermore, we want also to highlight Rich Cook, who first played with the Dohlberg Tigers around 2000,
when he was based at the Armstrong Kaserne, and - when he came back to Germany in 2008 - remembered the Tigers and joined our team again.
Thats great, and this is a big honor for us to be remembered after such a long time !
Now, as of 2010, he is unfortunately again around somewhere in the far east, and we wish him all luck.
Now let us move from the past/presence to the future ;-)
The Dohlberg Tigers strongly appreciate the participation of further participants.
