The California Winter League is a future independent professional baseball league based out of Palm Springs, Californiamarker. It were founded on September 10, 2009, by Andrew Starke, owner of the Palm Springs Chill (formerly of the Arizona Winter League) and the Palm Springs Power (collegiate wood bat team). It is a short-season instructional league which will play all games at Palm Springs Stadiummarker from January to February and features four teams set to play in 2010, the Palm Springs Chill, the Coachella Valley Snowbirds, the Canada A's and the Palm Desert Coyotes. Starke will serves as the league president and chief operating officer and former Major Leaguer Darrell Evans (manager of the Golden Baseball League's Victoria Seals) will serves as league commissioner. The CWL will not only provide perfect playing conditions, but each player will receive quality lodging and meals, and most importantly, the highest level of baseball instruction.

History

After the great success shown by the Palm Springs CHILL in the Arizona Winter League during the 2008 and 2009 seasons, Owner Andrew Starke decided to create the California Winter League to offer yet another outlet with great opportunity for aspiring players. Based out of Palm Springs, California, the league will offer four teams, all coached and managed by former MLB players.

Purpose

The purpose of this winter league is to expand on the huge success the Chill franchise has had over the past two seasons winning more games and having more players invited and signed to professional spring training contracts than any other western United States based team. The CHILL organization will now expand from one franchise to an entire league with four to six teams, helping even more current and future professional players prepare for the upcoming spring and summer seasons. All four teams will be managed by former Major League players with all assistant coaches and instructors having professional playing and coaching experience. Instructors will represent several professional leagues across the nation like the Golden Baseball League, the Frontier League, the Atlantic League and many more. We also have instructors with ties to international playing opportunities in Europe, Asia, and Australia. These include our team managers, league instructors and guest speakers, who will constantly be educating and scouting each and every player.
