Community rallying around beloved baseball coach who is battling a rare cancer

The community is rallying around a local baseball coach who has made an indelible mark on Mission Viejo.  

Capistrano Valley baseball coach and teacher Adam Sorgi is battling a rare form of cancer and undergoes major surgery on Thursday.   

Since his recent diagnosis with peritoneal mesothelioma, family, friends, players, students and others have been uniting to help support the beloved coach who has touched countless lives.   

His roots in this City certainly run deep. A Capistrano Valley alumnus, Sorgi played on the South Mission Viejo team – coached by his father – that went to the Little League World Series, and his sister was a champion diver for the Mission Viejo Nadadores. In 2018, he became the school’s baseball coach. Since then, Sorgi has appeared on two episodes of the City’s “Coach's Corner with Paul Higgins” and on “South County SportsZone.” His first episode was filmed at the 20th Anniversary of the 1997 South Mission Viejo Little League Champions. In 2021, he appeared on the City’s show to highlight the Capistrano Valley High School baseball team.   

You can read more about the popular coach in the Orange County Register.
