Tito Fuentes Jr., son of the legendary San Francisco Giants 2nd Baseman, was born in the Dominican Republic, where he was taught about the great game of baseball by such greats as his father, Tito Fuentes Sr., and Juan Marichal. During his father’s 14 years in the Big Leagues and for the past 25 years, Tito Jr. traveled back and forth to the Dominican Republic annually to be immersed into the 24/7 baseball culture of the Caribbean.
After High School, Tito was invited by Juan Marichal to the Dominican Minor Leagues and joined the Oakland A’s and Los Angeles Dodgers camps in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. While there, Tito experienced playing ball with Roberto Duran, Jose Mesa, Felix Rodrigues, Apolinar Garcia, Rene Suarez, Moises Alou and many more future Big Leaguers. Although Tito's career was cut short by injuries, it was there where Tito developed a passion and love for teaching baseball; a passion he wished to share with others who wanted to become better players.
The Tito Fuentes Baseball Academy has now moved back home to the Bay Area and is headquartered in Napa, CA. In addition to offering baseball clinics, Tito provides private instruction and instructs several travel baseball teams of his own. In 2010, Tito was named the Manager of the Freshman baseball team at Justin Siena High School in Napa. Tito went on to manage The Vallejo Admirals in 2013-14. Today Tito continues to train and scout professional ball players and is currently coaching youth at Line Drive in San Rafael.
