Severns’ involvement in the game since then harkens back to the final weeks of his college career. In May 1975, quoted by a newspaper columnist, he said, “Coaching is a learning process, too, I guess.” It was a good guess. Now, with twenty-three years of experience as a youth baseball coach, he has learned a lot in the

Bill and Suzanne live in Prairie Village, Kansas and have four children, Matthew, Sarah, Drew and Will, and four grandchildren, David, Annie, Naomi and Lillie.
