KX Sports’ Joey Lamar caught up with Bismarck Governors catcher Logan Morse, who actually didn’t have to play one more season of Legion ball–he chose to. It’s one of the many reasons Morse’s teammates look up to him.
“I actually had the opportunity to play in Myrtle Beach and Virginia this summer,” Morse said.
But Morse decided to come back to the Govs for one more season.
“I’ve always been the younger guy in the club house,” Morse said. I felt like now it was my turn to be the older guy, to be that veteran leader.”
Coach Mike Skytland doesn’t worry much with Morse behind the plate. Morse also consistently hits in the middle of the order.
“He’s kind of a guy that people want up when guys are on base,” Skytland said. “Behind the plate, he’s used to working with a lot of our pitchers. He provided stability there, too.”
Morse came back because he enjoys playing ball with his childhood friends.
“I’ve played with our first baseman since I was 10 years old,” Morse said. “Being out there and looking behind the plate, that’s the same view I had when I was ten.”
The Governors have had their ups and down this season, so does the rising sophomore at Minot State regret his decision?
“We’ve had struggles this season,” Morse said. “I feel that’s part of baseball. Even in your struggles you can learn something.”
