Meet Our Team
Kyle Gayler, Owner
Passionate about sports, kids and business, Kyle is excited to combine his experience and vision to create and operate Hub City Fieldhouse. Kyle attended Texas Tech and received his bachelors degree in business, always with the dream of someday opening his own business in a sports-related field.
Kyle is a CPA and business professional with more than 20 years experience in accounting, management and business operations. Being from Lubbock and having lived here most of his life, he is very well connected with the local baseball and softball community, and has strong relationships with players, coaches and parents.
Kyle and his wife Melanie have two children, Evan and Brooke. When Kyle’s children became involved in sports, he discovered a new passion in life: coaching. While coaching, Kyle recognized the need for additional training and practice facilities in the area and thus developed the vision for a facility such as Hub City Fieldhouse.
Kyle is very excited to provide a much-needed service to the Lubbock area: a state-of-the-art training facility for players to practice their game, access to excellent instructors and a fun, safe, beautiful club-like atmosphere.
