Baseball: Alumnus Kevin Cislo Coaching at Chelsea

Submitted by formerlyanonymous on May 12th, 2010 at 10:43 PM

Michigan lost in one of the ugliest types of college games today by a score of 13-10. Both teams should be embarassed how ugly that was. Michigan should be more embarassed for losing. So instead of looking at that game, I bring you news of one of last year's alumni.

Kevin Cislo saw his senior year come to a sad ending, having to sit out with a shoulder injury that ended his playing days. He's moved on nicely, now coaching at Chelsea High School.

“I got involved with CHS through Coach Welton,” he said. “We worked at (University of Michigan baseball) coach Maloney's camps in the summer and winter and got to know each other pretty well. He knew I was going into education, so I asked him if it would be possible to do my student teaching at Chelsea. I did my student teaching with Marta Learman in the fall while helping coach the JV football team. Things worked out so I could stay in Chelsea during the spring, which let me help with the baseball team.”

It's good to hear he's still able to contribute to the game that he loves. And who knows, maybe one day we'll see him coaching again at the Fish.

The young Maloney is playing varsity as a freshman, and he can hit.

As to the article: Cislo is a great guy.  I got to meet him during the football season (when he was coaching the JV team), and I've gotten to talk to him a number of other times since then.  I don't know where he's going to end up, but I'm hoping to have him here in Chelsea as long as we can keep him.

Edit: here's some ocular proof.  First Cislo:

And Maloney:

I went to Tecumseh HS and Chelsea kicked our ass in damn near every sport while I was there. Despite having a much smaller enrollment than most (if not all) of the SEC it doesn't seem to affect them. The kids always seemed so well-coached and fundamentally sound. Good luck to Cislo at Chelsea
