A gift in support of an extraordinary young man!

Tony Robles, Michael Tosado and John Leyman

from Tiger Products and the Tri-State Tour

Following a feature article in Billiards Digest Magazine's August 2005 issue, which detailed the struggles and achievements of a remarkable 14-year old young man named Michael Tosado, the folks at Tiger Products wished to do something special in recognition and support this young man's efforts and improvements in school and Billiards.

An awards presentation was held at Amsterdam Billiards in New York City on August 18th. Approximately 100 players were in attendance to applaud Michael's efforts, including UPA Touring Pro "Tony Robles" (representing Tiger Products). Tony and John Leyman of the Tri-State Tour gave Michael a Tiger Products gift-pak valued at over $300.00 and an experience to remember, recognizing his scholastic and billiards achievements. Michael, great job!!!

We at Tiger Products would like to thank UPA Touring Pro "Tony Robles", Todd Fleitman & John Leyman (Tri-State Tour) and Lou Tosado (Michael's Father) for helping to make this special event happen.

Only 2 weeks following the change, young Michael has successfully ran 3 consecutive racks of 9-Ball (which he had never done before) on two separate occasions.
