This vision has became one of the top amateur baseball programs in the country and home to thousands of young ambitious baseball players looking to advance their careers to the next level. During his time with CCB, Raich has displayed a wealth of knowledge and experience in the game of baseball along with player development, college recruiting and advising. He has helped guide hundreds of baseball players to the college and professional levels. Most notably, coaching recent World Series champions Joc Pederson during his time at Palo Alto HS and Eric Thames during his time at West Valley College.

Raich is local product of Saratoga High School where he starred in both baseball and football from 1997-2000. He helped led the Saratoga 1999 baseball team to a CCS Division 2 championship beating Burlingame High School. After Saratoga High School, Raich moved on to play at West Valley College from 2001-2003 where his teams won two Coast Conference Championships.

Raich got his start coaching at his alma mater West Valley College as an assistant coach from 2004-2007 under hall of fame coach Mike Perez. Raich duties as assistant coach were working with outfielders and hitters along with first base coach. During his time as assistant coach, West Valley won a Coast Conference Championship and were the #1 ranked team in Northern California for the playoffs in 2007. In addition, Raich coached five draft picks with the most notable being world series champion Eric Thames.

In 2010, Raich was hired as the head baseball coach at Palo Alto High School. During his five year tenure at Palo Alto the Vikings won four league titles and in 2011 won the school’s first ever Central Coast Section Division 1 Championship. In 2011, the team was named the #1 ranked program in the state of California. In addition, Raich graduated every one of his players and each player continued into college to further their education, along with two professional draft picks in Joc Pederson (Los Angeles Dodgers) and BJ Boyd (Oakland A’s).

After a great tenure at Palo Alto High School, Raich was hired as the head baseball coach at De Anza College in 2014. Raich had the daunting task of rebuilding the program from a team that was 3-32 the previous season. In this first season at De Anza College, Raich guided the program to a second place finish in the Coast Conference with an 18-18 overall record and playoff appearance for the first time in eleven years. During his second season, his team went 21-15 and made the playoffs once again along with being ranked as high as #5 at one point in the CCCBCA Northern California rankings. Following up a strong second season, the De Anza College baseball program had their best overall season in 2017 going 23-16 and another top 20 ranked team.

After a great run as head coach at De Anza College, in 2020 Raich decided to head back to the high school level as head baseball coach at Westmont High School. Once again, Raich had a tough task of rebuilding a program who was coming off a tough 4-20 prior season. However, his tenure at Westmont was put on hold due to the COVID 19 Pandemic that cancelled the 2020 season. In 2021 and his first full season, Raich went with a full youth movement whose team competed in the very competitive BVAL Mount Hamilton Division. In 2022, Raich helped lead Westmont to a BVAL Santa Teresa Division title and a CCS playoff birth.
