Rich Wagner played 16-inch softball with Sim’s Bowl during the 1970s. Unfortunately, he suffered a serious knee injury while playing that forced him to switch to managing softball instead of playing it. He managed the Turtles from 1982 to 1990 before rejoining them for the ’92 through the ’95 seasons. During his time with the Turtles, he managed them to runner-up finishes in the ASA ‘A’ Nationals in 1985 and ’86. He coached Splinters in 1991 and led them to the ASA National title in Kingman, Arizona. Rich managed March Manufacturing in 1994 and 2002 – 2005 until they became Flash. He managed the Diamond Dogs in 2000, Bats in 2001, Maxim Mortgage in 2006 and 2007, and Flashback in 2008-’09. Rich managed March to a 2nd place finish at the ASA Nationals in 2004 and 2006. He coached Flashback to the 2005 Forest Park championship and to ASA Major titles in 2008 and 2009.
