A Rising Star in Coaching

In addition, Coach Lopez has spent the past two summers as a coach in the Rocky Mountain Baseball League (Denver Cougars and Colorado Springs Outlaws).

Chaz's impact on these teams reflects his immense potential and the dedication he brings to his coaching.

Building Two-Way Relationships
Chaz Lopez's coaching philosophy is firmly grounded in the idea of building two-way relationships with his players. He emphasizes, "Building these two-way relationships is at the core of everything we do. Trust and respect are paramount, both on and off the field." Chaz is not just focused on their performance as athletes but also on their growth as individuals. He adds, "I'm committed to guiding them towards becoming well-rounded, responsible, and respectful members of the community."
Passions Beyond the Diamond
Chaz enjoys many hobbies outside of the baseball field. He loves to spend time outdoors, whether it's hunting, exploring, or enjoying a natural hot spring. He also enjoys video games and relishes every moment watching his two favorite MLB teams, the Seattle Mariners and St. Louis Cardinals.
