Mark “Whitey” Forsman has announced his retirement as manager of the DC Saints, after 32 years at the helm.
Forsman took charge of the Saints in 1983, when he as just 19 years old. He built the team into a perennial contender, as the squad made the state tournament 13 times, including a second-place finish in 1993. The Saints finished with 11 league championships, six region titles, and six region runner-up titles under Forsman’s tutelage.
Forsman was also instrumental in transforming Saints Field into a Minnesota amateur baseball gem. His tireless efforts resulted in two state tournaments being hosted at Saints Field, the most recent of which was last summer.
Long-time player Andrew Carlson will take over the reigns for Forsman next season.
