This is my rookie season as a coach at CPHS. I graduated from CPHS in 2012. I have played baseball for 15 years and have about 3 years of experience as a baseball umpire.

My favorite music is any genre but I also enjoy finding new artists but my core music revolves around Kid Cudi, Led Zeppelin and Daft Punk. My favorite place to eat is anywhere that serves high quality all you can eat sushi. My favorite aspect of coaching is that it's giving me a look into the game that I've never experienced before. I love baseball with all my heart, so the fact that I am able to explore uncharted territories in a sport that I've grown up with is really exciting. My favorite High School baseball memory is it honestly meshes together. Baseball was my one constant in life and I will forever be grateful to the way it has kept me grounded.

Coach Don Wildes

My favorite aspect of coaching is watching players improve not only on the baseball field, but in the classroom and as a valuable citizen in society. Teaching the players to respect the game and to always work hard.
My favorite highschool memory has to be when I was on the bowling team which was the Northern California State Champions in the mixed scratch division.
I also enjoy playing softball and have played with the Concord PD softball team which has won several tournaments, including the Silver Medal in the California Police/Fire games.

Coach Steve Fee
"Why not?" RFK
This is my 5th season coaching College Park Frosh Team. I joke that my career ended because I couldn't hit a curveball and couldn't throw a fastball, thats the joke (and to be honest, the reality) of my playing career. This is my 10th year coaching baseball and my 2nd at College Park High School. I basically coached my younger brother until his 8th grade year and didn't want to stop so finding College Park was a blessing. My goal for the season is that the freshmen team is to have fun while continuing to learn the game of baseball. I base my success on two things; if the players come back out for the next season (because it was fun) and if they are able to make and continue playing at the next level. My favorite thing about baseball is "everything." I love the sac bunt to move the winning run into scoring position just as much as the long homer to straight away center or 6-4-3 to end a threat. My favorite thing about coaching is putting a player in a situation where he can and does succeed. Whether it's pitch hitting a player who is able to get the big hit or bringing in the lefty to get us out of a jam. I love being able to watch a player succeed and, to borrow a phrase from my youth, a plan comes together.
I am married to my wife Suzanne and have a son named Sandor.

Coach Marty Soares Jr.
"Winning isn't everything, striving to win is."
Graduated from De la Salle High-School in Concord, CA. Played baseball at DVC for two years and attends St. Mary's College of California. This is my 2nd year of coaching at College Park High-School. My favorite baseball player is Josh Donaldson. I enjoy listening to Hip Hop and R&B. I have done lessons for the past three years prior to joining the College Park coaching staff. I want every kid to find a way to get better everyday, as well as give them the knowledge and help them strive for the ultimate goal. "Winning the NCS Championship." In my players I look for someone who gives everything they have every single day. Skills can be enhanced through coaching, but the desire to win and to get better has to be internal. My favorite thing about baseball is that is an unselfish sport. You can't play for yourself! You are playing for everyone on the team, playing for your school and playing for your family. You do your best for others so you don't let them down. My favorite thing about coaching is when you see the look in a kids eyes when he finally understands what you are teaching and seeing them do it in a game. Watching them become a better player right before your very eyes. As well as the bond and trust you build with them.
