Sam Joseph remembers his playing days as a University of Jamestown baseball player of hopping on a bus, traveling across the Midwest and spending time with the team.

Sam Joseph remembers his playing days as a University of Jamestown baseball player of hopping on a bus, traveling across the Midwest and spending time with the team.

Joseph will get to do the same thing, this time with the Jamestown Post 14 American Legion baseball program as he accepted the head coaching position this week.

"I'm actually very excited," said Joseph, who played for Jimmie baseball from 2003-04. "It's actually something I've been looking forward to doing, but I haven't had the time or availability. I'm looking forward to get started."

Joseph coached under from Post 14 coach Cory Anderson, which drew his interest to get more involved. He will be assisted by former Post 14 member and current Concordia Cobber Jake Stilwell and former Jimmie baseball player Alex Sablan.

"We have a whole bunch of kids that want to work and get better," Joseph said. "I've known a lot of them since little kids and they want to compete. It's hard to teach that and we have good athletes.

"It's always something I've always wanted to get involved in and make sure the baseball program stayed on the right path."

Jamestown, a Class A legion team, starts in June after the high school season wraps up in late May. The West Division tournament is scheduled for July 23-27 in Minot, while the five-day state tournament begins July 31.
