President – Andrew Starke

Andrew Starke has been the sole Owner and President of the Palm Springs POWER Baseball Organization since its creation in the fall of 2003.  The POWER organization is the parent company of the California Winter League, thus his responsibilities cover all day-to-day operations of the CWL as well.  Mr. Starke started the company from the ground up since he was 23 years old and has seen it grow at a rapid pace to its current employment of over 75 full and part-time staff.

Mr. Starke currently serves as an executive board member for the Palm Springs Police Officers Association’s Memorial Fund Honorary Board. In June 2007, he received the Palm Springs Small Business of the Year award from the Chamber of Commerce and the City of Palm Springs. In addition to owning the POWER & the CWL, Mr. Starke works part time as an associate scout for the Philadelphia Phillies and has done so since 2010.

On the field, he was a four-year scholarship baseball player and graduate of Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, with a degree in Business Administration.  Throughout college he not only earned All-Conference honors on the field, but also was a member of the Atlantic Sun Academic All-Conference Team.

Mr. Starke is a full-time resident here in Palm Springs with his wife, Vicky, and their two sons Christian and Caleb.  He is very proud of the accomplishments and growth of the POWER organization over the past 12 years and looks forward to keeping baseball here at Palm Springs Stadium for many years to come.
