TC50: Steve Friend, Chabot College

Steve Friend is an alumnus of Chabot College in Heyward, California and has been their head coach since 1989. Chabot is a junior college with an enrollment of over 15,000. As Coach Friend says it, Chabot is “a blue collar program” whose players know how to work hard. Steve has no shortage of alumni that want to help the program, sometimes in an assistant coaching capacity. Given some of the budget constraints that have hit almost every facet of life in California, Chabot has not been exempt from belt tightening, but Coach Friend has learned to be very creative when it comes to raising funds for his program.

  1. Steve not only wins, ALL of his players leave Chabot with a scholarship in their back pocket with an opportunity to play at the next level and graduate from a 4 year school. After all, getting players to the next level what it’s all about!

  2. I would recommend Paul Moore he’s an assistant at Stanislaus state and president of the California Community College Baseball Coaches Association
