COACH KELSEY

Softball Pitching Coach

Coach Kelsey began her softball career at the age of six and throughout high-school was the starting pitcher for the Pepin, WI Lakers. Her love of the game, diligent off-season practice, and use of positive mental imagery helped led her to several career accolades: All Conference, All District, All Area, All State, MVP, and WFSCA All-Star.

Outside of the softball diamond, Kelsey graduated from the Mayo Clinic Nursing Program in 2007, and currently works in the Oncology Department in the Mayo Clinic Health System as a registered nurse. In her free time she enjoys spending quality time with her family (Husband Matt, three daughters, and their puppy June). Depending on the time of year you will find Kelsey outdoors enjoying activities such as hiking, rock climbing, wake-surfing and downhill skiing.

Coach Kelsey’s passion for teaching, practical knowledge of mental strategies, and her love of the game organically brought her to coaching softball. Kelsey has particular interest in working on the fundamentals of speed, power, and accuracy initially. Once that pitching foundation has been established, she then branches out into more complex pitches such as change-ups and drop-balls.

Coach Kelsey is a dynamic instructor who is excited about the opportunity to prepare the next generation of pitchers technically, mentally, and physically for unparalleled success on and off the mound!

COACH CARLTON LINDOW

Baseball Skills & Drills, Catching Coach & Bullpen Catcher

I enjoy giving back to the game that developed me into who I am today. I graduated from Cannon Falls High School as a three-sport athlete and went on to play baseball at the University of Northwestern - St. Paul. I served as team captain for two years and earned three years of all-conference honors, scholar athlete and academic awards, the conference sportsmanship award, and the NCCAA Hank Burbridge Award. I now play for the Cannon Falls Bears of the Minnesota Baseball Association.

Since 2017, I have organized and coached youth baseball leagues for Cannon Falls and Randolph, as well as led many youth baseball camps. Two of my biggest passions are athletics and working with kids and I am blessed to do both on a daily basis. I teach third grade at Randolph Public Schools and coach football, baseball, and help train athletes in the weight room.

I look forward to helping athletes reach their potential and make a positive impact.

Coach James Heise_edited.jpg

COACH JAMES HEISE

Baseball Coach

My name is James Heise and I have been a Senior High History and Literature teacher at Lake City Lincoln High School for thirty-one years. In that time I was an assistant varsity football coach for thirty years and assistant varsity baseball coach for twenty-three years. In those twenty-three years I was the head coach for the Freshmen, B-Squad, and Junior Varsity baseball teams. I also assisted the Varsity in tournaments and sectional tournament play. I assisted in coaching the Lake City Legion Team from 2017-2019. I also was the head coach for the Little League teams that my son played on from 2011-2017. Those teams competed in the Zumbro Valley League as well as the Metro League.


My duties as a coach have run the gamut, defensively I was the outfield coach for the Lake City Baseball program but as a head JV coach I was responsible for running my own practices, so I covered all aspects of defense, including pitching, infield, and outfield positions. I also worked extensively with hitting including numerous hitting stations.


I retired from coaching in 2022 but am intrigued by returning to the coaching ranks especially in focusing on specific skills to help improve young ball players trying to become better baseball players. I have always enjoyed coaching which is why my career was so long and I truly enjoy the game of baseball and hope to continue giving back to a game that gave so much to me.
