Bio: Camacho, a native of Oxnard, California, is back for his second year with Walla Walla and will serve as the team’s pitching coach. He said that from top to bottom, the Sweets are the best run organization that he’s ever been associated with and that the fan support has been incredible.
Camacho is currently the assistant athletic director at St. Bonaventure High School and had a storied career as the school’s head baseball coach before retiring from the position in 2012. He compiled 209 wins in 11 seasons, was an eight-time conference champion, including back-to-back undefeated seasons in 2007 and 2008. He was the National Western Region High School Coach of the Year in 2005 and was named Ventura County Coach of the Year five times.
Raul has two brothers and two children. His son, Raul Jr., is a police officer, and his daughter, Samantha, is a freshman at Cal Poly-Pomona.
Comacho is motivated by the opportunity to impact someone’s life and said it’s it is important to him to stay in touch with former players and encourages them to come back to visit. He is looking forward to finishing what the Sweets started last year and believes the Walla Walla community deserves a winner and that the staff and the players will work hard to bring it to #SweetsCountry.
