The pride that T. Patrick Stubbs, or T. Pat as he is known in the community, feels for the Torrey Pines High School (TPHS) baseball program cannot be mistaken. As the main liaison for the TPHS baseball program and the TPHS Foundation, T. Pat is a dedicated volunteer who helps ensure the student-athletes in the baseball program have up-to-date and well-maintained training facilities. “The student-athletes in the TPHS baseball program deserve the best training facilities possible to get them to the next level in their pursuit of excellence. The program cultivates leaders on and off the field. It is a community asset worthy of my attention and time,” explained T. Pat. He has two sons who share his passion for TPHS and the baseball program: Cameron (CJ) who currently plays at TPHS and Garrett, who played for the TPHS team and is now a baseball player at the University of Southern California.

T. Pat is no stranger to sports – he is the vice president of Del Mar Stubbs Incorporated (DMSI), a marketing and communications company that serves sports teams and the horse racing industry, among other clients. He is the founder of the Del Mar Powerhouse Baseball Club,

which has provided a competitive baseball program for local boys and girls since 2001. He also spent 19 years marketing the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and developing successful on-track promotions such as the Four O’clock Friday Concert series, the Party in the Paddock and Donut’s Day. “I was part of the team that was brought on to market the new grandstands, and I was also a big promoter of positive community relations for the Thoroughbred Club through charity events surrounding Opening Day and the Pacific Classic,” related T. Pat, who is also a partner in Pacifica Del Mar, a popular local restaurant.

As a long-time resident of Del Mar, T. Pat takes an active interest in the community. “My wife of 23 years, Marti Jo, and I have lived in Del Mar for 20 years. I am past president of the Del Mar Merchants Association and founding vice president of the Del Mar Village Association,” said T. Pat. He was also a board member for the Del Mar Foundation for six years where he took a keen interest in the restoration of the San Dieguito Lagoon, the Del Mar Summer Concert Series and the need for public art in the community.
