Chris serves as owner and founder of Pac-West Baseball. He has developed one of the most recognized pitching camps in the Pacific Northwest through the “Pitchers Only” Prospect Camp. Its tremendous success over the past years was the inspiration for Pac-West.
     Driven by perfection and a strong work ethic, Chris takes great pride in the attention given to each player. He founded Pac-West with the philosophy: “I will give each player a first class experience with highly qualified and experienced coaches.”
     A 1982 graduate of Flathead High School in Kalispell, MT, Chris pitched at Lewis-Clark State College from 1982-84.

     He served eleven years as pitching coach for the The College of Idaho (formerly Albertson College), and was an integral part of the winning tradition established by the program’s success as a national power. Since the reinstatement of the program in 1986, The College of Idaho has won fifteen Conference Championships, two Regional Championships, two Super Regional Championships, placed 2nd, 3rd, and 5th in World Series appearances, and won the NAIA World Series in 1998. Chris has coached twenty-five All Conference pitchers, seven Conference Pitchers-of-the-Year, six All-Regional pitchers, six NAIA All-Americans, and has had fourteen former pitchers sign professional contracts.
     He and wife Kristi Chatterton, a former Northwest Nazarene University basketball All-American, twin daughters Sidney and Riley, son Cooper, and youngest daughter Makenzie, reside in Meridian, Idaho.

     Paul is Pac-West Baseball’s executive director. He’s been a well-known, highly respected, and successful coach in Idaho for over 25 years.
     Owner Chris Frith says, “Pete is just flat-out great in everything he does. Most people recognize him for his football accomplishments, but they don’t realize what an excellent baseball guy he is. I have the utmost respect for him as a coach and as a person.”
     A 1979 graduate from Madison High School in San Diego, California, Paul played both football and baseball at San Diego City C.C. He then transferred to Idaho State University, where he started at quarterback for the Bengals from 1982-83.
     Paul began his high school coaching career at Capital High School coaching football and baseball—winning a state baseball championship in 1989. Beginning in 1990, he coached 16 years at Borah High School. During his tenure, he spent time as both the head football and baseball coach. In 2005, he became the head football coach at Eagle High School in which he developed standout quarterbacks Taylor Kelly (Arizona State University) and Tanner Mangum (Brigham Young University). In 2009, he led the Mustangs to a state championship. Paul has also been the director of the Bill Buckner Baseball Camps and private hitting instructor for over 20 years.
     He and his wife Betty live in Eagle, Idaho. They are parents of daughter Tara and son Brad. They are also the proud grandparents of Grayson and Harper!
