The West Coast Kings were created in 2012 in order to provide aspiring student athletes to receive the proper training in preparation for collegiate and pro baseball.
The West Coast Kings help college players connect with coaches and scouts across the country while leading student athletes down the right path to their next step in baseball.
High school and college athletes need a place to showcase their skills to college coaches and pro scouts, outside their respective seasons. The West Coast Kings were an immediate success with it's players not only having a tremendous first year, but gaining recognition from many D1, D2 and JC programs across the state.
The West Coast Kings were started by former pro players whose focus is on player development rather than simply winning travel and league tournaments.
The staff is compiled of former pro and college players with the goals to simply get players better on and off the field. The West Coast King Staff has a great track record not only as players but as teachers and mentors to athletes all over California and the United States.

He played 5 seasons for the Giants and was Organizational Pitcher of the Month for May of 2002. Coached by Dusty Baker, Felipe Alou, Dick Tidrow, Lee Smith and others.
Born and raised in Danville, he starred on the San Ramon Valley Little League World Series team that won the National Championship in Williamsport, PA in 1991. He attended Monte Vista High School and after moving on from professional baseball in 2006 began working with players of all ages in the Bay Area.
In 2008, he accepted the Pitching Coach at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill. DVC went to the State Championship in Kyle's first year of work, while having 5 pitcher's drafted in the top 15 rounds. DVC won two Big 8 Conference Titles and in 2011 ranked No.1 in NorCal, leading all California Community Colleges with a 2.13 ERA.

In 2015, they earned the #1 ranking by Baseball America and USA Today for the Top High School Program in the Nation, having 7 players receive D1 scholarships.
The West Coast Kings were established in 2012 and had instant success at all levels from 14u through the College Ranks. The Kings were created to offer the most competitive venue for players to showcase their skills while developing connections with Collegiate recruiters and Pro scouts. Both academically and on the diamond, the Kings have moved countless players into top programs around the country, most recently AJ Curtis (Cal State Fullerton) and Ray Soderman (University of Oregon). As Owner and Manager of WCK, Kyle brings years of experience, Collegiate and Professional connections and leadership to the program.
Kyle resides in Concord Ca, with his wife, Holly and two girls, McKenna and Peyton.
