After seven years at the helm Kevin Benzing is stepping down as the head baseball coach at Marshalltown Community College. Benzing re-started the baseball program at the school and the Tigers take a 9-31 record into the region tournament later this week.
Benzing says he wants to dedicate more time to his family, as he says trying to be a father, teaching and coaching took too much of his time. Benzing says his 2005 team will be one of his top memories. He says they were 33-23 and got votes in the top 25.
Benzing says he will always remember his first team after getting the program going. He says they had four players that went on to play professionally and two who’re still playing in the pros.
