About

Palm Springs POWER Purpose:

The Palm Springs POWER Baseball Club was created in the late summer of 2003 by Owner Andrew Starke. His goal of creating a fun inexpensive form of entertainment for Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley was accomplished June 4, 2004 at Palm Springs Stadium as the POWER took the field in front of 3,300 excited fans in their home opener.

Each year the POWER roster is comprised of both Division 1 and Junior College stars not only from Southern California but throughout the nation. The players report to Palm Springs on Memorial Day and are here improving their baseball skills while entertaining baseball fans through the end of July.

In 2007, the POWER was a part of creating the Southern California Collegiate Baseball Association (SCCBA). Over the past two years the league has become one of if not the most competitive collegiate summer leagues throughout the United States. The SCCBA is a premier NBC league.

Each year the POWER host teams from all around the country including Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, Illinois and California. Palm Springs Stadium also played host to the SCCBA All-Star Game and Home Run Derby in 2007, 2008 & 2009. 

In the six year history of the organization, the POWER has compiled a record of 201 wins to only 76 defeats for a winning percentage of .730, by far one of the most successful programs in the country. 

In addition to the POWER’s activities on the field, the organization is also active in the community. POWER players attend community events throughout the Coachella Valley in June and July, and the POWER’s beloved mascot, Rocky the Ram, can be found at Valley events throughout the year.

California Winter League Purpose:

– For professional players currently under contract to sharpen their skills and be a step ahead of other players not competing during the off-season.

– To provide future professional baseball players a winter instructional league to be able to showcase their skills and compete for pro jobs during minor league and independent organizations spring training. To assess and select players for the 2010 California Winter League Championship season and to provide players to other independent leagues and major league organizations for the 2010 season.

– To keep professional baseball alive for fans in the southern California area to enjoy during the beautiful winter weather.

    Hi Josh,
    Really enjoying listening to the games on-line. Just an FYI Clint grew up in Raymore, Missouri right outside of Kansas City, Missouri … so that is why his favorite MLB team is the Kansas City Royal’s….. that’s who he grew up with!!
