Since retiring from playing he has donated his time to be a coach for both his son's baseball team and daughter's softball team. His baseball team has won league championships for 5 consecutive years, while his daughter's softball team finished as state runner up in 10u division.

Bruce is considered by many as a founding father of Fairmont Fastpitch and has been giving all he can to Fairmont softball for over 21 years. He freely opens up his business for pitchers to practice, pays for the lights, the heat and gets little in return but receives the enjoyment of watching them play the game. He has spent thousands of hours and dollars working on Silver Lake Field at Hands Park to provide all area players the best softball field in Southern Minnesota and Northern Iowa. This fall he completely rebuilt his outfield, put in a sprinkler system, graded and leveled the field to prime condition and replanted grass. While doing this he had to also repair his drainage system as it got filled with dirt and tree roots. He is also putting in a handicap accessible bathroom through this winter and next spring.
