John Baggs turned the St. Scholastica baseball program around and changed the lives of his players. He lost his life on Tuesday morning at 6:00 a.m. after a battle with cancer. Baggs’ team played its first games Tuesday night at 10:45 at the Metrodome.

This team has won 12 straight conference titles but that’s just a part of the reason Baggs was a great coach.

“Baseball was important but the lessons he taught the kids about life, it was amazing,” said St. Scholastica Baseball Parent Ron Rover

And as they watched a game, fans and former players were reflecting on the program and on its lost leader.

“He took the baseball lessons and turned them into life lessons. Took the approach, this is going to help you in baseball, that this is going to help you in life as well. So that will stay with me forever,” said Former St. Scholastica Player Nick Bjerken

That’s what you felt; that John Baggs had lived his life the right way. And his impact will be felt because of it.
