Dave Legg has been around baseball all his life. He played and coached for San Diego State. Then coached at Wyoming, before being the head coach at a high school in Southern California. He and his wife retired to Ennis Montana three years ago, and this is his 3rd season as the Bucks head coach.
"I try to get them to think about baseball. A lot of the questions I ask them it would be real easy just to tell them all the time, but I want them to be able to think about the game," said Dave Legg.
"He's a fun guy. Little intense. Wills scare you a bit but deep down he's a good guy and he likes us a lot as a group he'll joke around with us he'll have a good time just like he's one of the guys," said senior outfielder Joel Thayer.
Legg has made the Bucks a consistent winner.
"We underachieved so much as a team before he got here, and when he came from California out team has gotten so much better just because of his intensity for the game," said Thayer.
His players know just how dedicated he is. He commutes from Ennis every day for practice!
"He drives an hour and a half for this team. His intensity every day, he's never off he's always going to be on you,?" said Thayer.
"They've got some great people in this program. The players I give them a lot of credit for the different types of weather that we play in. I'm not sure if I was tough enough to do that if I was playing," said Legg.
Legg says he'll stop coaching when the passion is gone, but he still has this goal.
"At some point down the line whether it's with their kids or other people's kids maybe there's something here that they've learned that they can pass along and that would be the greatest thing in the world to me," said Legg.
