Legion: Walsh sharing time with Govs, Reps, Senators

National Sports

The summer has been non-stop for Bismarck coach Kevin Walsh.

“I like it just for the fact that you are helping out the local community,” Walsh said. “In youth Bismarck baseball, you’re helping out everybody.”

Kevin is the head coach of the Bismarck Senators, pitching coach for the Bismarck Governors and assistant coach for the Bismarck Reps.

“I had about 35 games with the Sens, about an additional 20 games with the Govs and an additional 12 with the Reps,” Walsh said. 

Kevin’s background is in pitching. So this summer he worked with all three teams to make sure their pitching plans were setup for success.

“The biggest thing with our teams is trying to find out our four-day, five-day and sometimes even a six-day rotation and giving those guys the process,” Walsh said.

One week this summer, Kevin coached six games with the Senators and four games with the Govs, plus practices.

“For a 5:30 p.m. game, we come in 2:30 p.m.,” Walsh said. “I’m here in the morning with the Govs. Then I’m literally back and forth to each field. Haaland to Muni to Haaland to Muni, and that was every single day.”

So why would the coach put some much stress on himself?

“I feel like I’m not working,” Walsh said. “When you love what you do, you do it for free.”

Next summer might not be as busy for Kevin. He is engaged and does not want to upset his future wife.

“I told her that I would have an obligation to her, especially for the summer time,” Walsh said. “I don’t want to say it’s over, but we are in discussions is the best way we can put it.”
