COACHING John Anderson, head coach, 29th year

Todd Oakes, pitching coach, 12th year

Rob Fornasiere, asst. head coach, 25th year

Minnesota has one of the longest tenured coaching staffs in the nation.

For the last decade Head Coach John Anderson, Assistant Head Coach Rob Fornasiere, Pitching Coach Todd Oakes and Volunteer Assistant Coach Lee Swenson have presided over the direction of the program. The 12 years that this group coached together is one of the longest spans in the country for any full coaching staff. As a group this staff boasts more than 100 collective years of experience coaching baseball. Head Coach John Anderson

• 2008 ABCA Hall of Fame inductee • One of 20 head coaches in NCAA Division I history to win 1,000 games in with the same program • Five-time Big Ten Coach of the Year • Big Ten all-time leader in coaching victories • Guided Minnesota to 16 NCAA Tournament berths • Led Minnesota to nine Big Ten Tournament titles and eight Regular Season crowns

6 * Minnesota Baseball

John Anderson and Rob Fornasiere were a great help to me. Being here for four years, and coming from a little high school player to turn out to be a Big Ten Player of the Year was pretty neat and my hats are off to [the coaches] and the day-in, day-out work that they put in for you. You really appreciate how hard they work for you, and it’s a great thing for the university that they’re here.

Lee Swenson, volunteer coach, 12th year John Anderson was inducted to the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2008.


Rob Fornasiere was named the American Baseball Coaches Association Assistant Coach of the Year in January, 2009.

Assistant Head Coach Rob Fornasiere

• 2008 ABCA Assistant Coach of the Year • Coached 31 different All-Big Ten infielders • Recruited 11 players to Minnesota that have reached the Majors

More than 100 years of combined coaching experience

“John [Anderson] and Rob [Fornasiere] did a great job of teaching us a lot about baseball and the fundamentals and what pro baseball would be like. Of course we had a lot of guys that went on to play professionally, come back and tell stories about what to expect in the minor leagues. I think the thing that sets John and Rob apart more than anything is the preparation they give you if baseball doesn’t work out – what they teach you about life and hard work and all those things that make you successful, whether its baseball or some other area of your life. That was to me what was most impressive – to be prepared for whatever happens – luckily for me it was baseball. Guys that come out of here that don’t get the chance to play at the next level are prepared for whatever else they might do in their life.

Together, Anderson and Fornasiere make up one of the most experienced coaching duos in the nation. Anderson and Fornasiere both currently have more experience coaching in the Big Ten than anyone else in the conference. Between Anderson and Fornasiere, they have a collective 60-plus years of coaching experience, and have collected a lot of championship hardware during their respective careers.

Volunteer Assistant Lee Swenson

• played a huge role in the development of AllConference catchers Jake Elder (2002-05) and Jeff DeSmidt (2005-08) • has 20 years of coaching experience, 10 at Minnesota, five at North Dakota and five at Luther College where he played. • has played a big role in instilling the fundamentals for Gopher catchers for the last 11 years, and helped Kyle Knudson lead the Big Ten in runners caught stealing percentage in 2009.

former MLB catcher Dan Wilson (1988-90)

Pitching Coach Todd Oakes

• 14 of his pitchers have been drafted by selected in the Major League Draft • 23 of his pitchers have earned All-Big Ten honors

Todd Oakes was able to really teach me how to trust my stuff. When I first got to Double-A it was a big step up. For him to be there and help me throw strikes and trust my stuff was big for me. He really helped me get my confidence back to where it needed to be to succeed. I still use the same philosophy that he helped me with today when I face hitters. I know no matter who it is in the batters box that I want to be aggressive and throw the first pitch over for a strike. Minnesota Twins all-star pitcher Joe Nathan, who was coached by Oakes in the San Francisco Giants system.

Where I was when I came in and where I was when I left is a testament to their coaching ability. [Todd Oakes] took me from where I was when I got here to being a first-round pick three years later. It just shows the hard work they put in and the knowledge that they have. Minnesota Twins pitcher Glen Perkins (2003-04)

Dairy Queen

CLASSIC

Minnesota claimed the 2008 Dairy Queen Classic title, edging a field that included Pepperdine, Tulane and TCU.

• The Dairy Queen Classic is in its 26th year and is one of the longest running tournaments in the nation. • Nine teams from the Dairy Queen Classic have gone on to compete in the College World Series. • The Dairy Queen Classic teams have produced 145 Major League players. • The 1987 Dairy Queen Classic featured one of the few appearances by a Cuban team in the United States. • The 1989 Dairy Queen Classic featured one of the first televised regularseason college baseball games on ESPN. • Nine of the top 20 coaches in all-time wins have coached in the Dairy Queen Classic. Between the collection of coaches who have been in the tournament they have won 20 College World Series titles.

Dairy Queen heads into its eighth year as the title sponsor of the University’s annual spring baseball tournament held at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. The tournament, which was established in 1985, celebrated its 26th anniversary in 2009 and is considered one of the most respected collegiate tournaments in the country. It consistently brings the top teams in the country to the Twin Cities and provides them with the opportunity to display their talents in a major league facility. The tournament has received outstanding support from the Twin Cities corporate community through sponsorship. Companies like General Mills, Pillsbury, Hormel Foods and Oscar Mayer have played a big part in the growth and success of the event. The tournament has grown considerably in many ways since its inception, and that growth would not have been possible without the support of its sponsors. The 2010 event will feature its annual onfield clinic for youths ages 7 to 17 and their coaches. The clinic will be conducted by the coaches and players participating in the competition. A very popular part of the tournament in the past, it provides an opportunity for today’s college stars to give something back to the community. Though Dairy Queen is the lead sponsor of the tournament, organizations like the The Depot-Minneapolis, Rawlings Baseballs and the Dugout Club help make the Dairy Queen Classic possible each year. 11 * Minnesota Baseball

Gophers In The Community

The Gopher hockey program believes it is important to return the outstanding support given by its fans by returning some of their time through volunteer and charitable activities. The Gophers are actively involved in the Twin Cities and University communities. Additionally, the CHAMPS/Life Skills program will: • Promote student-athletes’ ownership of their academic, athletic, career, personal and community responsibilities. • Meet the changing needs for student-athletes. • Promote respect for diversity and inclusion among studentathletes. • Assist student-athletes in identifying and applying transferable skills. • Enhance partnerships between the NCAA, member institutions and their communities for the purpose of education. • Foster an environment that encourages student-athletes to effectivelly access campus resources.

Champs/Life Skills Program History

In 1991, the NCAA Foundation initiated efforts to create a total development program for student-athletes. Through the collaborative efforts of the NCAA Foundation and the Division I-A Athletic Director's Association, the CHAMPS/Life Skills Program (Challenging Athletes Minds for Personal Success) was created. Today, the NCAA Education Outreach staff oversees the development of the program, offering services, support and programs to participating institutions throughout the year. The CHAMPS/Life Skills Program is supported through the promotional and financial efforts of the NCAA Foundation and the NCAA national office.

PEYTON OWENS Associate Director Director of CHAMPS/Life Skills

University of Minnesota Life Skills Program

The Life Skills Program at the University Of Minnesota includes many programs all designed to help make the student-athlete's experience a positive one. The CHAMPS/Life Skills program is an NCAA sponsored program designed to focus on the total development of the student-athlete. Part of the mission of the Athletic Department is to encourage student-athletes to achieve excellence in their academic and athletic pursuits. In an effort to assist our student-athletes further, the program is designed to give a comprehensive approach to providing educational experiences and services which focus on the individual. We presently utilize: a freshman orientation course, personal development programs, Golden Career Opportunities, various community outreach efforts, and our Student Athlete Advisory Committee (S.A.A.C.) to impact the lives of our young men and women. Gopher involvement in the CHAMPS/Life Skills Program helps student-athletes enhance the quality of their experience here within the university setting. We are also supplied with instructional materials and supplemental resources which support our student-athletes' development within the CHAMPS/Life Skills Commitment Statements’ five key areas: academic excellence, athletic excellence, personal development, career development, and community service.

JOHN ANDERSON HEAD COACH | 29TH YEAR

 FIVE-TIME BIG TEN COACH OF THE YEAR  ALL-TIME BIG TEN CONFERENCE LEADER IN VICTORIES  ABCA HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE

In the fall of 1981, John Anderson took over the job of leading the tradition-rich University of Minnesota baseball program, thereby retracing the footsteps of his mentor, legendary Golden Gopher Hall of Fame baseball coach Dick Siebert. Twenty-eight years later, Anderson continues to uphold the lofty standards of the University of Minnesota baseball program. In fact, on January 4, 2008, Anderson joined his mentor and teacher in the ABCA Hall of Fame when he became the third Golden Gopher coach to be inducted. Anderson followed former Minnesota coaches Frank McCormick (1931-41) and Siebert’s (1948-78) path to the ABCA Hall of Fame. He also became the eighth coach from the state of Minnesota and the 15th in the Big Ten to receive the honors. Anderson’s induction into the Hall of Fame, along with McCormick and Siebert’s, represent an overall testament to the consistent success the Minnesota baseball program has enjoyed over the past 75 years. On May 14, 2009, Anderson also won his 1,000th career game at Penn State 7-6. With the victory, he became the 39th coach in the history of Division I to win 1,000 games, and the 20th to do so with the same program. Both numbers were a continued reminder of the continued consistency of winning that Anderson has carried on at the University of Minnesota. Anderson enters the 2010 season with a record of 1,006-645-3 for a winning percentage of .609. Among active Division I head coaches, he is 11th in wins, fifth among coaches who have been at the same school in victories, 44th in winning percentage and 39th among all-time coaches in victories. Entering the 2010 season, he carries an average of more than 35 wins a season over 28 years. He is also the winningest coach in Big Ten history with 454 conference victories. His overall Big Ten career record is 454-256 (.639). From 2000-09, Anderson led the Golden Gophers to a 181107 (.628) record in Big Ten play. He also helped the 2003 and 2004 senior classes graduate with four Big Ten championship rings (either tournament or regular season). Minnesota won or split 38 of its last 43 Big Ten series (25-5-13) from 2002-07, and also put up the highest two-year Big Ten win total in conference history in the 2003 & 04 season with 45. The Golden Gophers have also advanced to the NCAA Regionals in eight of the last 12 years. Minnesota’s eight NCAA Tournament appearances in that time are the most by any Big Ten team since 1998. Since Anderson took over the Golden Gophers in 1982, Minnesota has made 16 NCAA Tournament appearances. That is the highest total by any school in the Big Ten in the span, and the most NCAA Tournament appearances of any coach in Big Ten history. The Golden Gophers also hosted the 2000 NCAA Regional. It was the first time since 1977 that the University of Minnesota played the role of host to a regional tournament. Minnesota has made the Big Ten Tournament 24 times in 28 years under Anderson. In his 24 appearances, Anderson has accumulated a 56-37 record for a .602 winning percentage. In Anderson’s last eight appearances in the Big Ten Tournament, Minnesota has at least made the championship game. He has also claimed eight championships and 10 runner-up finishes. With the 40 wins in 2009, Minnesota has nine 40-win seasons under Anderson. The Golden Gophers have also won 30 or more games under Anderson in 26 of his 28 seasons. In 2009, Anderson guided the Golden Gophers to a 40-19 (.678) overall record, second-place in the Big Ten by a half game at 17-6 (.739) and second in the Big Ten Tournament. Minnesota was one step away from the Super Regional round, as it lost to eventual National Champion LSU in the championship game of the NCAA Regional in Baton Rouge. Minnesota won the Dairy Queen Classic for the second year in a row defeating Hawai’i, UC Santa Barbara and Washington to claim the title. The Golden Gophers also won two out of three games at No. 11 TCU and claimed three out of four from a ranked Ohio State squad during the course of the season. Individually, the Golden Gophers were led by Derek McCallum, who claimed First-Team AllAmerica honors in 2009. Minnesota also had seven players named to All-Big Ten teams as McCallum (First-Team, Second Baseman), Scott Matyas (Second-Team, Reliever), AJ Pettersen (Second-Team, Shortstop), Seth Rosin (Second-Team, Starting Pitcher), Tom Buske (Third-Team, Starting Pitcher), Michael Kvasnicka (Third-Team, Outfielder) and Matt Nohelty (Third-Team, Designated Hitter) all claimed the honors. It was a satisfying year as a team, as the Golden Gophers manufactured the largest turnaround in the nation from 2008 to 2009. Overall, Minnesota’s 40-19 record was an 18-game turnaround from the 20-35 finish in the 2008. In 2008, the Golden Gophers won the Dairy Queen Classic for the fifth time in school history claiming the title over No. 18 Tulane, TCU and Pepperdine with a 2-1 record. Minnesota also defeated No. 2 Missouri on Mar. 26, marking their highest-ranked victory since 2003. The Golden Gophers had two players named First-Team All-Big Ten, as Matt Nohelty (center field) and Nate Hanson (third base) claimed the honors at their respective positions for a second year in a row.

Off the field, the Minnesota baseball team posted a 3.0 GPA as a team. In 2007, Anderson led Minnesota back to the NCAA Tournament. The Golden Gophers knocked out No. 4 San Diego with a 65 10-inning victory in the tournament. Minnesota also defeated No. 5 Arkansas and No. 9 Pepperdine earlier in the year to give it wins over three different top-10 programs for the first time since 1991. The Golden Gophers also compiled a 41-18 overall record, which was the fourth-best winning percentage (.695) under Anderson. It was Minnesota’s highest winning percentage since 1999. The Golden Gophers finished tied for second in the Big Ten with an 18-9 conference record. That season, Anderson also helped led the Golden Gophers to a Big Ten record seventh straight Big Ten Tournament Championship game. Minnesota’s first appearance in that stretch came against Michigan in Columbus, Ohio in 2001. The Golden Gophers faced Ohio State in four straight Big Ten Championships in 2002 (at Minneapolis), 2003 (at Minneapolis), 2004 (at Minneapolis) and 2005 (at Champaign).

In 2006, Anderson reached a pair of significant milestones that underscored his consistent success at the “U”.

The Golden Gophers had three players

named all-conference, as Cole DeVries (2nd-team), Nohelty (3rd-team) and Andy Hunter (3rd-team) all grabbed the honors. Nohelty also became the fourth Golden Gopher in four years to receive Freshman AllAmerican honors. All four players (Hunter, Mike Mee, Nohelty and Glen Perkins) redshirted their true freshman seasons and gained valuable experience under the Gopher coaching staff. In 2005, the Golden Gophers entered the Big Ten Tournament with the No. 6 seed, but played a Big Ten record six games to reach the championship. Minnesota at the time became the first No. 6 seed in the Big Ten Tournament’s history to advance to the championship game. In the Big Ten Tournament, the Golden Gophers demonstrated the trademark resiliency that has come to be associated with Anderson’s program, as they rallied from three runs or more in all four of their Big Ten Tournament victories. For the effort in the Big Ten Tournament, Minnesota had five players named to the All-Tournament team. The Golden Gophers also had five players named to the Big Ten All-Conference team, including First-Team third baseman David Hrncirik who started his career as a walk-on in Anderson’s program. Anderson claimed Big Ten Coach of the Year honors for a record third straight year and the fourth time in five years in 2004. He also guided the program to a historical season in which it won the Big Ten regular season and tournament titles in the same season for the first time in school history, and what was then only the seventh time in conference history. The Golden Gophers claimed a third straight regular season Big Ten title for the first time in the conference since it was done in 1993-95. It was also the first time Minnesota had claimed three straight regular season titles since 1968-70. Minnesota had nine players named to the three All-Big Ten teams, including three first-teamers. Glen Perkins was also named the Big Ten Pitcher of the Year and earned AllAmerican honors for Minnesota in 2004. Adding to the highly successful season, was Minnesota’s 2004 Dairy Queen Classic that featured wins over No. 14 Nebraska and No. 22 Florida State to claim the tournament championship. The Golden Gophers also claimed a win at 2004 national champion Cal State Fullerton on Mar. 13 in which they rallied from a three-run deficit in the ninth inning. Minnesota hosted the Big Ten Tournament for the fourth time in five seasons, and became the first host to win the tournament since 1995. In 2003, Anderson led Minnesota to its second straight regular season title with a 24-6 Big Ten record. It was the first time the Golden Gophers had claimed back-to-back regular season titles, in non-divisional play, since 1973 & 74. Minnesota ended up winning the conference by five games, the largest margin since the conference went to non-divisional play in 1988. Minnesota also claimed its seventh 40-win season during Anderson’s coaching tenure in 2003, going 40-22. The Golden Gophers finished first in the Big Ten by five games with a 24-6 record. The 24 conference wins was the third-highest total in Big Ten history. The Golden Gophers won three of the four major Big Ten postseason honors, as Anderson was named coach of the year, Luke Appert was named Big Ten Player of the Year for a second season in a row and Glen Perkins was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year. Minnesota also won two of three games in an early season series against No. 2 Cal State Fullerton, and defeated No. 14 Notre Dame to add on to its highly successful conference season. The Golden Gophers delivered Anderson’s 800th win in dramatic fashion. Minnesota trailed Pepperdine 5-2 in the NCAA Regionals going into the top of the ninth inning, but the bats woke up as Minnesota scored five runs to move on to a 7-5 victory. The 2002 season saw Minnesota claim its sixth Big Ten regular season title, during Anderson’s tenure, on the final day of the season, as the Golden Gophers defeated Ohio State 8-5 at Columbus in the final game of the season to claim the title. Anderson was named Big Ten Coach of the Year for the third time in his coaching career. His players joined him in claiming awards, as the Golden Gophers nearly swept the Big Ten honors. Luke Appert was named one of the conference’s Tri-Players of the Year, while C.J. Woodrow was named Big Ten Pitcher of the Year. Minnesota also rebounded from an early 1-9 record to claim its 19th straight 30-win season under Anderson. On May 12, 2002 his team delivered an 8-5 victory in the first game of a doubleheader with Iowa to make him the winningest coach at Minnesota. With his 755th win he passed his mentor and Golden Gopher legend Dick Siebert. Anderson also had a number of milestones in the 2001 season as he earned career victory number 700 on March 24 at Purdue, and became the Big Ten’s all-time leader in conference victories with win number 296 on March 30 against Indiana. He later increased that total to 300, becoming the first coach in league history to reach 300 conference wins. By winning the 2001 Big Ten Tournament, the Golden Gophers received an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, making it the fourth straight season he had led them to NCAA play. Minnesota was the only Big Ten school at the time to accomplish that feat. Anderson has twice taken the Golden Gophers to the NCAA Tournament in four-straight seasons with the first from 1991 to 1994.

coaching staff In 1998, he became one of the youngest coaches to surpass the 600-win mark with a victory over Northwestern. Along with his on-the-field contributions, Anderson continues to improve other areas of the program to attract top-notch student-athletes. With a facility like the Metrodome at his disposal, he has been able to attract some of the upper echelon collegiate baseball programs in the nation to play in the annual Dairy Queen Baseball Classic at the Metrodome. The tournament, formerly known as the Hormel Foods Classic, is in its 26th year of existence and is highly regarded amongst the collegiate baseball community as one of the best in-season tournaments in the nation. This year’s participants include Loyola Marymount, Northwestern and Oklahoma State. Although building a respected baseball program is one of Anderson’s main concerns, developing quality student-athletes is his utmost priority. During his tenure, Anderson has coached a total of 174 Academic All-Big Ten selection. Last spring, the team had 16 players honored as Academic All-Big Ten selections. The team also had a 3.2 GPA for the fall semester in 2009. In 1993, Anderson experienced one of his career highlights as he served as Head Coach for the USA Baseball Team in the summer. He guided the squad to a 30-16 record during the summer tour, including a silver medal at the Intercontinental Cup in Parna, Italy. At the time, it was the highest medal finish for the USA in that event since 1988. The team also went 8-1 in the World Championships. Anderson also served as an assistant for the USA Baseball team in 198990. Anderson has also co-authored a book entitled Why Good Coaches Quit—And How You Can Stay in the Game. Written with prominent sports psychologist Rick Aberman, Anderson offers practical solutions to the problems that coaches at all levels of the game routinely encounter both on and off the field. A graduate of Nashwauk-Keewatin High School in northern Minnesota, Anderson came to the University

SPEAKING ABOUT THE COACHES National Baseball Hall of Fame member Paul Molitor (1975-77) “I am indebted to the University of Minnesota baseball program. Coming out of high school in St. Paul it was great for me to go to a program that stressed the fundamentals as much as the University of Minnesota. The instruction and experience that I got during my time with the program was a large part of what helped in the Minor Leagues as I was climbing the ladder and preparing to play at the Major League level.” “Being a contemporary of John’s it is fun to see how he has climbed the ladder from student manager, to assistant coach all the way to head coach for the last 28 years. He has done a remarkable job with the program, and I always enjoy supporting the program and watching the job he does helping out the young players as they progress in their careers.” National Baseball Hall of Fame member David Winfield (1971-73) “We had a great team in 1973 in my final year when we reached the College World Series. Dick Siebert did a good job of teaching the game of baseball and stressing the fundamentals. I think John (Anderson) and the current staff have done a good job of continuing that part of the program succesfully.” Kansas City Royals Broadcaster Ryan Lefevbre (1990-93) On his time as a Gopher: “I still consider coming to Minnesota the best decision I’ve ever made. Growing up in southern California can be a trap for some people if you never get out of there and experience life, find out what your niche is and where you belong in the world, I took what was then kind of a crazy risk to move 2,000 miles to the University of Minnesota to play baseball. Some of my buddies were joking that we needed to get the map out to remind ourselves where Minnesota was. It truly was the best decision that I ever made to come back to the Midwest – my mom’s side of the family is from around here. I haven’t lived in Southern California now since the mid-80s. Now living in Kansas City – it all began with me coming to the Midwest. The values change, the people you spend time with change. When the Royals play the Twins in Minnesota, I always try to hook up with John [Anderson] and Rob [Fornasiere] – I mean they become part of your family.” Minnesota Twins Pitcher Glen Perkins (2003-04) On his career at Minnesota: “Where I was when I came in and where I was when I left is a testament to their coaching ability. [Todd Oakes] took me from where I was when I got here to being a first-round pick three years later. It just shows the hard work they put in and the knowledge that they have.” LA/Anaheim Angels First Baseman Robb Quinlan (1996-99) On his career at Minnesota: “John Anderson and Rob Fornasiere were a great help to me. Being here for four years, and coming from a little high school player to turn out to be a Big Ten Player of the Year was pretty neat and my hats are off to [the coaches] and the day-in, day-out work that they put in for you. You really appreciate how hard they work for you, and it’s a great thing for the university that they’re here.” Former Seattle Mariner Catcher Dan Wilson (1988-90) On his career at Minnesota: “John [Anderson] and Rob [Fornasiere] did a great job of teaching us a lot about baseball and the fundamentals and what pro baseball would be like. Of course we had a lot of of guys that have gone on to play professionally, come back and tell stories about what to expect in the minor leagues. I think the thing that sets John and Rob apart more than anything is the preparation they give you if baseball doesn’t work out – what they teach your about life and hard work and all those things that make you successful, whether its baseball or some other area of your life. That was to me what was most impressive – to be prepared for whatever happens – luckily for me it was baseball. Guys that come out of here that don’t get the chance to play at the next level are prepared for whatever else they might do in their life.”

QUOTING ANDERSON ON COACHING STYLE: “I think recently I have become more of a consultant. I have tried to encourage people to become interested, accountable and responsible for their own careers and just provide support for them where they need it. I think I have become more of a person who has tried to teach people how to become internally motivated. I want to help them decide what it is that is important to them and what they want to get outof their careers. Philosophically this has been my new style and approach to coaching and it has worked out well. I want my kids to be independent, critical thinkers who can map out a path for themselves. In the end I think the kids can take some ownership in the process and from what they accomplish. To me it’s more about internal motivation versus external motivation based on realistic expectations.” ON ACADEMIC OPPORTUNITIES: “I’ve always said that Minnesota has tremendous academic resources and opportunities that allow our student-athletes to reach their full human potential. We have the facilities and the personnel to help them become successful students and reach their primary goal of earning a degree. The academic advisors, tutors and support people really allow our student-athletes to embrace the learning process and become better students. In my tenure as a head coach, 92 percent of all fourth and fifth-year players have graduated; and nearly every season, we have had scholar-athletes in the double digits. If you think about it, those are some pretty amazing numbers. It just shows how dedicated we are to our academic program, and really says a lot about the wonderful staff and facilities our students have access to.” ON THE COACHING STAFF: “We take a great deal of pride in our ability to teach the game of baseball and create a philosophy, we feel, allows us to do an outstanding job of developing players. We have a track record now that I think speaks for itself. One of the things we do is foster an environment that helps student-athletes accomplish what they cannot do on their own. We try to take their natural ability and potential, and show them how to spot their inconsistencies on their own. We encourage them to take ownership of the learning process and responsibility for their own careers. They know their own abilities. Sometimes they just need a

little help finding their potential.” “I feel the teaching environment we have created for the student-athlete has been advantageous, especially for those players who really want to come here and get better. We are very proud of that, and the success shows in the number of quality people who have succeeded after their experiences in our program and at the University of Minnesota.” “Our goal is to find young men who understand the value of these traditions and who have the level of responsibility to earn the right to put on the Minnesota ‘M.’ We seek individuals who are eager to continue and be a part of our tradition, and are enthusiastic to begin new traditions that the program can be proud of for years to come.” ON SUPPORT OF THE PROGRAM: “You can’t accomplish great things in life without other people helping you and encouraging you along the way. No one can do it all by themselves and our program has had so many great assistant coaches, players, fans, alumni and supporters through the years, it has just been wonderful. So many people have supported us and we can’t thank them enough. I appreciate their support so much and it has helped immensely to make the Gopher baseball family what it is today. The success doesn’t just belong to me, we can all share in it because it wouldn’t be possible without them.” ON THE METRODOME: “I believe the foundation of any successful program starts with its facilities. Here at Minnesota, our outstanding facilities provide us with a quality environment to reach high levels of success in both player development and national status.” “The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome has allowed us to overcome some of those adverse weather conditions and bring in nationally-touted opponents, so we can host home games early in our season. That allows us to generate a fan base and adequate media attention, so we can expose people to the great tradition that is Golden Gopher baseball.”

coaching staff of Minnesota as a player, hoping to catch on as a pitcher for the Siebert-led Maroon and Gold. After suffering an arm injury that ended his playing career, Anderson decided to continue his association with the program as a student coach. He was voted Team MVP by the players of the 1977 squad – a team that featured former Minnesota Twin and future Hall of Famer Paul Molitor, and finished sixth at the College World Series. After receiving his degree from Minnesota, Anderson began his coaching career as a graduate assistant under Siebert in 1978. After Siebert’s death in December of 1978, Anderson was elevated to the position of assistant coach under then-head coach George Thomas. Upon Thomas’ resignation after the 1981 season, Anderson was named as the 13th coach in Golden Gopher history. At age 26 when he took the job, he was the youngest baseball coach in Big Ten Conference history.

Known for fairness in dealing with his players, Anderson believes his number-one responsibility is to prepare his athletes for the next 50 years of their lives – a hallmark that has been a staple of Minnesota baseball for generations. To accomplish this, he does everything within his power to provide them with the necessary opportunities to mature and gain a greater understanding of life’s lessons. That way, when his players leave, they have the potential to become leaders in their respective communities and careers. Anderson and his wife, Jan, of 17 years are the parents of a 15-year old daughter Erin Elizabeth.

ASSISTANT HEAD COACH | 25th YEAR

In 2008, Rob Fornasiere received an award naming him the ABCA Assistant Coach of the Year. This award was a well-deserved recognition for a coach that has been an integral part of the Golden Gopher program. However, more than anything it confirmed what everyone in the community and around the program already knew it terms of Fornasiere’s value to the continued success of the Minnesota baseball program. Fornasiere has been a part of the Golden Gopher staff since coming on board in September 1985. In the fall of 1992, Fornasiere was named assistant head coach. A native of Sun Prairie, Wis., he won four letters in baseball at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse, graduating in 1978. He continued his education by earning a master’s degree in education in 1980 at Bowling Green State University while serving as a baseball graduate assistant coach. The next five years saw him direct Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minn., to a 105-29 record and four consecutive Minnesota Community College Conference championships from 1982 through 1985. Fornasiere led his 1983 squad to the National Junior College Region 13 title and a berth in the Junior College World Series in Grand Junction, Colo. His teams of 1982 and 1983 led the nation’s junior colleges in winning percentage with a combined 51-5 mark (.911). Entering the 2010 season, Fornasiere has more experience in the Big Ten then anyone except for current Minnesota Head John Anderson. Fornasiere and Anderson have coached together as part of the Golden Gopher staff for the last 24 seasons, comprising one of the longest tenures for a coaching duo in the nation. Fornasiere is entering his 25th year with the Minnesota baseball program, and his 17th as the assistant head coach. His duties include scouting, scheduling, recruiting and teaching team and individual defensive skills and schemes. From 2003-07, Minnesota fielded at a All-Big Ten Infielders .967 clip, making just 364 errors 10,536 chances in that span. Under Rob Fornasiere Heading into the 2010 season, Fornasiere has helped develop 31 difName (All-Big Ten Years) ferent infielders that have received All-Big Ten honors at Minnesota. Derek McCallum (2009) The Golden Gophers tied a school record in 2009 with a fielding AJ Pettersen (2009) percentage of .971, and have finished in the top half of the Big Ten Nate Hanson (2007, 08) Conference in fielding percentage in 22 of the past 24 seasons. Last Dan Lyons (2007) Andy Hunter (2003-06) year’s .971 fielding clip led the Big Ten. Minnesota has had a .960 or Matt Fornasiere (2004-05) better fielding percentage in 20 of the last 22 seasons. Fornasiere is David Hrncirik (2004-05) also familiar to Golden Gopher fans as the team’s third base coach. Luke MacLean (2004) Last year, second Derek McCallum had a breakout year as he David Roach (2003) claimed First-Team All-American honors at second base. McCallum Luke Appert (2000, 02-03) had transitioned from shortstop, where he played the previous seaScott Welch (2001-03) son, to second base where he batted .409 with 18 home runs and a Jack Hannahan (2000-01) school-record 86 RBI. Fornasiere also helped groom redshirt freshJosh Holthaus (2000-01) Rick Brosseau (2000) man AJ Pettersen into a Second-Team All-Big Ten shortstop. Matt Scanlon (1998-99) In 2008, Nate Hanson became the first Big Ten player to claim Robb Quinlan (1997-99) First-Team All-Big Ten as a third baseman in back-to-back seasons Eric Welter (1997) since 2002-03. Hanson was also the third player in school history to Steve Huls (1996) claim the honors in multiple seasons at third base. Rob Smith (1996) In 2007, Minnesota’s left-side of the infield received All-Big Ten Tony Bender (1995) honors as third baseman Nate Hanson received First-Team honors Shane Gunderson (1994) and shortstop Dan Lyons was named to the third team. Hanson Bill Mobila (1994) George Behr (1992) became the third Gopher third baseman since 2001 to collect FirstMark Merila (1991-94) Team All-Big Ten honors, while Lyons was third Minnesota shortstop Jeff Monson (1991) to take home All-Big Ten honors in that span. Brent Gates (1989-91) Fornasiere has played a big part in the success of Golden Gopher Jay Anderson (1988) infielders. In 2004, Fornasiere took an infield with three new starters, Paul Weinberg (1987-88) and helped guide the five different starting infielders (Mike Mee & Brian Raabe (1987, 89-90) Andy Hunter - first base, Luke MacLean - second base, Matt Jeff Goergen (1986) Fornasiere - shortstop, David Hrncirik - third base) to a collective Mark Hess (1986) .972 fielding percentage. All four regular infielders received all-conList of Major Leaguers ference honors, as Hunter was named First-Team All-Big Ten, and Recruited by Rob Fornasiere, Hrncirik and MacLean were named Third-Team All-Big Name (Years at Minnesota) Ten. Denny Neagle (1987-89) In 2005, Fornasiere helped Hrncirik, who was a walk-on freshJ.T. Bruett (1986-88) man in 2002, complete his development into a First-Team All-Big Ten Dan Wilson (1988-90) third baseman. Minnesota also had its third infielder in as many Brent Gates (1989-91) years drafted at the time as Fornasiere’s son Matt was drafted by the Brian Raabe (1987-90) Jeff Schmidt (1991-92) Cleveland Indians in the 12th round in the 2005 Major League Draft. Kerry Ligtenberg (1993-94) In 2003, two of the infielders Fornasiere worked with were picked in Jim Brower (1993-94) the Major League draft, as Appert was drafted in the sixth round of Robb Quinlan (1996-99) the Major League Draft by the Oakland Athletics, while Welch went in Glen Perkins (2003-04) the 33rd round to the Texas Rangers. Jack Hannahan (1999-2001) Fornasiere has also recruited 11 players that have ended up playing Major League Baseball. Along with recruiting a high-level of proven talent to the program, Fornasiere has also had the knack of finding gems in the recruited walk-ons he has brought to the program. Two of the best recent examples include two-time First-Team All-Big Ten outfielder Matt Nohelty and 2005 First-Team All-Big Ten third-baseman David Hrncirik. “Coach Rob” is a well-known baseball clinician, speaking annually at numerous state and national baseball clinics. He is also the longest tenured assistant baseball coach in the Big Ten Conference. Eighteen of the 24 years Fornasiere has coached for Minnesota, the team has finished either first or second in the regular season conference standings. The Golden Gophers have also finished in first place in the regular season six times (including divisional titles) and won the Big Ten Tournament six teams during his tenure.

TODD OAKES

PITCHING COACH | 12th YEAR

Todd Oakes enters his 12th year as the pitching coach for the Golden Gophers. Oakes has played a big role in the development some of the top pitchers in recent memory the Golden Gophers, and has consistently helped his pitching staff establish a mental approach that has proved successful throughout his time with the program. Oakes’ primary responsibility revolves around a Minnesota pitching staff that finished second in the Big Ten in ERA, second in opposing batting average, second in saves and second in walks allowed in 2009. In 2007 Oakes guided the pitching staff to a school record in saves with 23. That season, the Golden Gopher bullpen had a 16-6 record with a 3.52 ERA and 23 saves. Minnesota led the Big Ten in saves and was second in opponent batting average in 2007. The Golden Gophers also had a pair of relievers named All-Big Ten in 2007. Those results came one year after his staff set a school record in strikeouts in 2006 at 421. The Golden Gophers also led the Big Ten for a second straight season in strikeouts and led the way in opposing batting average at .256 during the 2006 season. Minnesota’s opposing batting average was a staggering .14 lower than any other team in the conference. It was also the lowest batting average by Gopher opponents in a season since 1984. Minnesota’s pitching staff also posted its lowest ERA since 1984 at 4.04. In 2006, Oakes helped mold a very impressive top three in the starting rotation in Brian Bull, Cole DeVries and Dustin Brabender. Between the three pitchers, they posted a 20-12 record, a 3.43 ERA, .234 opposing batting average, and had 181 strikeouts to just 78 walks in 257.0 innings. Over the final four weeks of the season, that group combined to go 10-2 with a 2.09 ERA. DeVries also posted the best ERA of any starting pitcher since 1978 at 2.42. Minnesota led the Big Ten in strikeouts (393), tied for the lead in shutouts (5) and was second in strikeout-to-walk ratio (2.10-to-1) in 2005. The Golden Gophers also posted the best strikeout-to-walk ratio in school history in 2003. The Minnesota pitching staff led the Big Ten in strikeout-to-walk ratio at 2.10-to-1 (178 walks, 373 strikeouts) and was second in ERA at 4.38 in 2004. In four of the past six seasons, the Golden Gophers have been in the top two in strikeout-towalk ratio in the Big Ten. Minnesota also had 404 strikeouts in 2003, the third-most in school history. The Golden Gophers also only allowed 153 walks, the lowest total since 1979. Minnesota finished the 2003 season second in the Big Ten in strikeouts, tied for second in complete games and fourth in ERA. Since Oakes began as the pitching coach in 1999, Minnesota has posted a 4.69 ERA, had a 1.91-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio (3,646-to-1,906) and has averaged giving up a walk just under every three innings of work. Oakes helped guide current Minnesota Twin Glen Perkins to back-to-back All-American seasons, as he finished his career with a 17-0 record against Big Ten opponents, and 230 strikeouts in two seasons. In 2004, Perkins became the second Golden Gopher to win Big Ten Pitcher of the Year honors in three seasons at the time. Golden Gopher Pitchers Drafted Under Oakes Before Oakes’ arrival, Minnesota had never claimed 2009 Scott Matyas, Tom Buske, Cullen Sexton Kyle Carr 2008 those honors.

After graduating from Spring Grove High School, Oakes moved on to Waldorf College (Iowa) where he earned second-team All-American honors as a sophomore. After graduating magna cum laude with his A.A. degree, Oakes enrolled at the University of Nebraska. In his two seasons with the Cornhuskers, Oakes compiled a 16-4 career record and earned second-team All-Big Eight honors in 1983. He excelled in the classroom as well as being named a third-team Academic All-American as he earned his B.S. Degree in Education. Oakes was drafted by the San Francisco Giants and played four years in the organization. In 1987 he moved into the coaching ranks and spent the next 12 years as pitching coach at various levels of the organization. He coached and worked with the likes of Rod Beck, Steve Reed, Pat Rapp, Keith Foulke, Joe Nathan, Jason Grilli, Scott Linebrink and former Golden Gopher Bryan Hickerson. He also coached on the back-to-back Texas League Champions Shreveport Captains in 1990 and 1991. In 1997 Oakes was named the Giants’ minor league pitching coordinator and oversaw the minor league pitching staffs at every level of the organization. Oakes was named assistant coach at the University of Minnesota on November 2, 1998. Since joining the Golden Gophers, Oakes’ pitching staff has steadily improved. In 1999, the maroon and gold hurlers posted a 5.73 team ERA, allowing 339 earned runs and 51 home runs. Those numbers dropped dramatically in 2000 to a team ERA of 4.20, 240 earned runs and a conference minimum 28 home runs surrendered. In 2001, Minnesota allowed the second-fewest runs per game in the Big Ten and had the second-best strikeout to walk ratio in the conference. Opponents hit a mere .284 off the Golden Gopher aces - second lowest in the league.

SEASON REVIEW Gopher Baseball 2010


season review received Big Ten All-Freshman honors, batted .338 with 35 runs, 11 doubles, 25 RBI, three home runs and was 11-for-11 in stolen bases on the season. He was also named to the NCAA Regional AllTournament team, as he batted .357 (5-for-14) with three runs and two RBI in tournament play. Gominsky made his first career start for Minnesota at Texas-Arlington. From that point, he made 44 consecutive starts for the Golden Gophers.

SEASON STORYLINES • Minnesota finished 40-19 overall, was second in the Big Ten at 176 and advanced to the Big Ten Tournament Championship game. The Golden Gophers went 2-2 in the NCAA Regionals in Baton Rouge with wins over Baylor and Southern, before falling to eventual National Champion LSU. It was the first time since 1999 that the Golden Gophers had won two games in the NCAA Regionals. Minnesota also won the Dairy Queen Classic for the second year in a row over a field that included Hawai’i, UC Santa Barbara and Washington. The Golden Gophers won two of three games at No. 11 TCU and won three of four games during the year over a ranked Ohio State team. Minnesota won 40 games for the ninth time under head coach John Anderson.

NOHELTY NAMED FIRST-TEAM ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICAN Senior Matt Nohelty was named a First-Team Academic All-American for a second year in a row. Nohelty was only the only repeat First-Team Academic All-American from 2008. Minnesota also had three players named Academic All-District as Eric Decker, Chauncy Handran and Nohelty each collected the honors. The Golden Gophers were the only Big Ten program to have three First-Team honorees and one of only four teams in the nation to do so. They are also the only program to have a player named Academic All-American in each of the last six years. Nohelty was also one of 10 finalists for Lowe’s Senior CLASS award for the sport of baseball.

• Junior second baseman Derek McCallum was named a First-Team All-American. McCallum also received First-Team All-Big Ten honors. Minnesota had seven players named All-Big Ten, three players named Freshman All-Americans, four named to the Big Ten AllTournament team and four named to the NCAA Regional AllTournament team.

MINNESOTA MAKES 29TH NCAA REGIONAL APPEARANCE SIX GOLDEN GOPHERS DRAFTED IN 2009 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL DRAFT Minnesota had six players taken in the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft, as Derek McCallum (Fourth Round - 132nd pick), Eric Decker (27th Round - 822nd pick), Scott Matyas (29th Round - 865th pick), Tom Buske (33rd Round - 998th pick) , Cullen Sexton (37th Round 1,126th pick) and Matt Nohelty (38th Round - 1,133rd pick) were all selected. McCallum signed with the Minnesota Twins and is currently in their organization. Decker elected to come back to the University of Minnesota to play football in 2009, and Matyas and Sexton both elected to come back and play their junior seasons at Minnesota. Buske is currently playing professional baseball in Australia, and Nohelty elected to bypass playing in the Mariners organization. McCallum was the highest drafted play since Glen Perkins was picked in the first round in 2004, and was the highest drafted position player since Jack Hannahan was taken in the third round by the Detroit Tigers in 2001. Decker was drafted by the Twins a year after the Milwaukee Brewers had selected him in the 38th round of the 2008 Major League Draft. He joined Noel Jenke and Andy Persby as the only Golden Gopher athletes to be drafted and play baseball, along with lettering in football. Matyas was the first Golden Gopher to be drafted by the New York Yankees since Tim Grice was selected by them in 1973. Buske joined Ben Birk and Craig Molldrem as one of three Golden Gophers to be drafted by the Florida Marlins. Nohelty was drafted by the Seattle Mariners, making him the fourth Golden Gopher in the draft who was taken for a second time. McCallum and Sexton were drafted out of high school, while Decker and Nohelty were each drafted in 2008.

McCALLUM NAMED FIRST-TEAM ALL-AMERICAN Junior second baseman Derek McCallum was named a First-Team AllAmerican by Baseball America, Rivals.com and the NCBWA. McCallum was the first Golden Gopher to receive first-team honors since Shane Gunderson did so in 1995. He also joined Gene Elder (1952), Jon Andresen (1963), Brian Raabe (1990) and Mark Merila (1993 & 94) as one of five Golden Gopher second baseman to receive first-team honors, McCallum was also one of 16 players to be finalist for the Dick Howser National Player of the Year honors. McCallum broke the Minnesota single-season record in RBI (previously held by Robb Quinlan at 84 in 1999) with 86. He also finished sixth on the Golden Gopher single-season list in batting average (.409), fourth in hits (95), tied for third in home runs (18), was third in total bases (172) and sixth in slugging percentage (.741). His batting average was the highest in a single-season by a Minnesota player since 1994 and the home run total was the most since 1998. McCallum was also one of two players to be named to the Big Ten All-Tournament team and an NCAA Regional All-Tournament team. In postseason play (five Big Ten Tournament games and four NCAA Regional games), McCallum batted .457 (16-for-35) with 11 runs, five doubles, three home runs, 14 RBI, an .857 slugging percentage and a .545 on-base percentage.

SEVEN GOLDEN GOPHERS NAMED TO ALL-BIG TEN TEAMS Minnesota had seven players named to the three All-Big Ten teams. The seven honorees were the most since the Golden Gophers collected eight in 2004. Minnesota also tied with Indiana for the second-most honorees among the three teams. Junior second baseman Derek McCallum was named First-Team All-Big Ten, while sophomore reliever Scott Matyas, sophomore starting pitcher Seth Rosin and redshirt freshman AJ Pettersen received second-team honors. Senior starting pitcher Tom

Derek McCallum became the first Gopher to earn First Team AllAmerica honors since 1995.

Buske, sophomore outfielder Michael Kvasnicka and senior designated hitter Matt Nohelty each claimed third-team honors. McCallum became the first Golden Gopher second baseman since Luke Appert (2002-03) to claim First-Team All-Big Ten honors. Pettersen is the first redshirt or true freshman to claim Second-Team or higher honors since Mike Mee was named to the second-team as a designated hitter in 2004. Pettersen is also the first shortstop to be named second-team or better since 2005 when Matt Fornasiere was named Second-Team All-Big Ten. Matyas was the first Golden Gopher reliever to receive second-team or higher honors since Josh Oslin was Second-Team All-Big Ten in 2007. Rosin also became the first underclassmen pitcher for Minnesota to be named second-team or higher since Glen Perkins was named FirstTeam All-Big Ten in 2004. Buske joined Rosin on an All-Big Ten team with third-team honors. That gave Minnesota its first pair of starter on the All-Big Ten list since Glen Perkins and Craig Molldrem claimed first and second-team honors in 2004. Kvasnicka became the first Golden Gopher outfielder to be named First-Team or higher since Nohelty did so in 2007. Nohelty also claimed third-team honors at designated hitter to become the first player since Andy Hunter to claim an All-Big Ten honor in all four years of eligibility.

MINNESOTA FINISHES NO. 21 IN FINAL POLLS Minnesota finished No. 21 in the final Rivals.com and Baseball America Top 25 polls. The Golden Gophers were also No. 26 in the final Collegiate Baseball Top 30 poll. It marked the first year since 1999 that Minnesota finished in the top 25. The Golden Gophers made their first appearance in the Baseball America poll in Mar. 16. Minnesota made its first appearances in the Collegiate Baseball and Rivals.com poll on Apr. 6 and May 11 respectively.

THREE GOLDEN GOPHERS NAMED FRESHMAN ALL-AMERICANS Minnesota had three players named Freshmen All-Americans, as Justin Gominsky, Nick O’Shea and AJ Pettersen were all named to the “Louisville Sluggers” Freshman All-American team. Pettersen, who was named Second-Team All-Big Ten at shortstop, finished second in the Big Ten in runs scored (65), was first in sacrifice bunts (10) and ninth in on-base percentage (.445). He was also second on the team in batting average at .353, had 79 hits and collected 45 RBI. His .353 batting average was the highest by a Golden Gopher freshmen since 2006 when Nohelty batted .361. Pettersen also was named to the Big Ten All-Freshmen team. O'Shea, who also received Big Ten AllFreshman Team honors, batted .287 with 11 home runs, 44 RBI, 13 doubles and 31 runs. He also had the most home runs by a Golden Gopher freshman since at least 1998. O'Shea was one of four Golden Gophers to claim Big Ten All-Tournament honors. He also finished tied for ninth in the conference in home runs with 11. Gominsky, who

Minnesota made its 29th NCAA Regional appearance when it went 2-2 in the Baton Rouge Regional. The Golden Gophers have the most NCAA Regional appearances in the Big Ten, and are 13th in the nation among all Division I programs in all-time NCAA Regional appearances. Minnesota’s 29 regional appearances are eight more then Michigan’s 21, which is second in the Big Ten. The Golden Gophers only trail Texas (53), Arizona State (47), Miami (38), Oklahoma State (37), USC (36), Clemson (34), Arizona State (32), Cal State Fullerton (31), Fresno State (31), Oklahoma (31), St. John’s (31) and Arizona (30) in NCAA Regional appearances.

Middle Tennessee is the best among teams other then Minnesota that qualified for the NCAA Tournament at +14.5.

GOPHERS ENGINEER ONE OF THE LARGEST CONFERENCE TURNAROUNDS IN BIG TEN HISTORY Minnesota finished the Big Ten campaign with a 17-6 record for a .739 winning percentage. Last year, the Golden Gophers finished 10-21 for a .323 winning percentage. The .416 swing in one year in one percentage was the largest by a Big Ten team since 1964-65 when Illinois also went from .067 to .571 in 1964-65. Minnesota’s turnaround was the third-best since 1950. Indiana also went from .357 to .786 from 1960 to 1961.

McCALLUM FINISHES HIGH IN TRIPLE CROWN CATEGORIES Minnesota junior Derek McCallum finished the Big Ten campaign leading the Big Ten in home runs in conference play at eight and RBI in Big Ten play with 36. McCallum was also third in the conference batting average at .440. If McCallum had been able to move into first in batting average and lead the conference in all three categories, he would have been one of four players to accomplish the feat. Mike Smith (Indiana) was the last player to do it in 1992. Casey Close (Michigan) also accomplished it in 1986, while Terry Wedgewood (Purdue) was the first player to do it in 1971. McCallum joins Shane Gunderson (1994), Mike Lausen (1980), Phil Flodin (1970), Mike Walseth (1968 & 69) and Harry Elliot (1948) as one six Golden Gophers to lead conference in home runs and RBI in Big Ten play. He also joined Josh Phegley (Indiana - 2008), Dusty Bensko (Illinois, 2005), Brad Carlson (Michigan State - 2002) and Nick Swisher (Ohio State - 2000) as one of five players since 2000 to lead the conference in home runs and RBI in Big Ten play. In conference play, McCallum was third in batting average, first in home runs, first in RBI, first in on-base percentage (.514), tied for third in runs scored (27), was first in doubles (11), first in total bases (75), first in slugging percentage (.824) and second in hits (40).

1956 COLLEGE WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS REVISITED The 2006 season marked the 50th anniversary of Minnesota’s first baseball national championship. The 1956 team won nine of 11 NCAA Tournament games en route to claiming the first of three national crowns.

QUOTING THE CHAMPS Bob Anderson: “I remember the final game against Arizona in the College World Series. They had beaten us the previous day to set up an elimination game. Jerry (Thomas) came out and pitched a great game for us, and Bill (Horning) had a great hitting night. I remember starting in left field in that game and getting ejected for sliding hard into home plate. That was frustrating, but it was such an exciting experience to win the College World Series. We were a close and very unique group of guys. The 1956 team was a great group of players coached by an excellent manager in Dick Siebert.”

Jerry Thomas:

“Winning the College World Series was a thrill of a lifetime. That team did everything well. We could get the big hit, we were fast, fielded the ball well, pitched well and could hit for power. We had a lot of confidence that season. After we won the Big Ten, our goal was to get to Omaha. I remember the first game of the NCAA Tournament we lost in extra innings to Notre Dame. We went through the motions in that game and paid for it. It was the only time I really saw Dick Siebert get after us for not playing well. We responded in a big way, by scoring 25 runs and the next day and kept rolling into the College World Series.”

Jerry Kindall: “The 1956 College World Series championship run was one of the great experiences of my life. I remember so much of it vividly. It was a terrific team coached by a great manger in Dick Siebert. We had a lot of experience and leadership on the team. We were a team that could win in many different ways, but it primarily started with defense and pitching, and a big part of that was Jerry Thomas who ended up being the MVP of the College World Series. The Big Ten was a very tough conference that year and it prepared us very well for the postseason. I still remember hitting a two-run homer in the top of the ninth against Ohio to put us ahead 7-6 in the NCAA District Playoffs. Jerry (Thomas) was not schedule to pitch, but came in for the ninth inning to nail down the win to send us to the College World Series. The College World Series championship was such a great thrill for me, because I was from Minnesota and I always dreamed of playing for the program under Dick Siebert. Everything I learned in baseball was from my father and Siebert. I always tried to coach like Siebert did throughout my career.”

Ron Craven justified his coach’s faith and jumped Minnesota’s Big Ten champions into the dream game of the College World Series. It was Craven, a late choice of Coach Dick Siebert to hurl the NCAA opener against Wyoming, who responded with a brilliant two-hitter to give Minnesota the 4-0 victory. Craven drove in Douglas Gillen with an RBI single in the bottom of the second to put Minnesota ahead 1-0. The Golden Gophers added two more runs on Shorty Cochran’s two-run single to left field. Another Gillen hit drove home Dave Lindblom to bring home the fourth and final run for Minnesota in the game.

Minnesota’s title-hopeful Gophers rolled relentlessly along their unbeaten trail in the College World Series by making Mississippi their third straight victim in the NCAA Tournament by a 13-5 score before 3,464 fans Monday night at Omaha Stadium. The Gophers continued to get topflight pitching, on this latest occasion by Dean Maas, a last minute choice, who gave the Rebels only one earned run. But last night Minnesota also began to hit for the first time in the tournament. The Gophers belted 19 hits to become the only remaining undefeated team in the College World Series. Jerry Kindall was the ring leader for the Minnesota offense as he hit for the cycle and belted the first Minnesota homer of the College World series and his own 18th of the season. Gene Martin was another hitting star for the Golden Gophers, getting his three hits right at the start when the winners were in trouble. Overall it was a loose game with six Mississippi errors adding in the carnage.

Minneapolis’ Carl Thomas now the favorite “moose” of the University of Arizona, stalled the Minnesota baseball team’s National championship drive for a day at least … and maybe longer. Unraveling 240 pounds to full advantage, big Carl fogged ‘em past his native staters for 15 strikeouts and a five-hit 10-4 revenge victory. As a result of the shoe being on the Wildcats’ and not the Gopher this time, the College World Series will come down to the final game with the two teams meeting in a final elimination game at Omaha Stadium. Arizona handed Minnesota its first setback of the NCAA Tournament since it lost 4-3 in extra innings in game one of the District 4 semifinals to Notre Dame. The loss snapped an eight-game winning streak for Minnesota. The Golden Gophers and Arizona enter the game with matching 4-1 records in the College World Series. Each team’s loss came against the other.

The homer-minded Gopher changed his stripes on Sunday night, as the running game forced Arizona into a series of costly mistakes and thereby won what may become the most important victory in Minnesota baseball history. The score was 3-1 in the second round of the NCAA tournament as little Jerry Thomas spun a three-hitter to keep Minnesota unbeaten in double-elimination play. The other Thomas, Carl started out much stronger for Arizona, but five errors gave the Gopher opportunists a pair of unearned runs. The triumph fashioned before 5,235 fans put the Gophers into a matchup against Mississippi. Minnesota got on the board first with a run in the top of the fourth inning. Bill Horning walked and Jerry Kindall was safe on a hard smash that the third baseman bobbled. With two out a pickoff was misfired at first base and Horning made third. Seconds later the Gophers employed a delayed double steal, with Kindall again drawing the throw to first. A rundown followed and Horning should have been nailed at the plate, but he was safe when the catcher dropped the ball at his feat to give the Golden Gophers a 1-0 lead. Arizona tied it at 1-1 in the bottom of the fourth. In the seventh Minnesota, Lindblom reached first when he was hit in the head with Carl Thomas pitch. Douglas Gillen gave Minnesota the 2-1 lead when he blasted a double to the 400-foot fence in right center. Lindblom was also instrumental in the ninth-inning insurance tally when he laid down a bunt, which Carl Thomas threw into rightfield to allow Jack McCartan to come around to scored for first to make it 3-1.

Rod Olstad, who has been troubled by an injured arm, struck out 13 battered and yielded only six hits to pitch Minnesota to an 8-3 victory over Bradley Tuesday night in Municipal Stadium. Olstad was the fourth different Gopher hurler to win without the help of relief in the NCAA Tournament. His triumph eliminated Bradley from the College World Series. Shorty Cochran led off the four-run Gopher first inning with a long home run over the leftfield wall. Four other hits, one a triple by Gene Martin, sparked the attack in a four-run first inning.

Long live the king! And in the College World Series for 1956 that’s Minnesota, which defeated Arizona 12-1 before 3,890 on Thursday, June 14 in Omaha Stadium. Pitcher Jerry Thomas and rightfielder Bill Horning led the triumph, which clinched the winner-take-all victory in the finals of the NCAA baseball tournament. The tremendous five-hit pitching of the stout-hearted Thomas earned him his second triumph over Arizona along with recognition as the outstanding player in the entire eight-team field. The crowd rocked the field with applause while all his teammates, including Coach Dick Siebert, rushed the mound at the final out to give him a hero’s well-deserved shoulder ride to the dugout. But lets not forget Bill Horning. The Gopher captain was almost as dynamic a factor as Minneapolis’ little Thomas. In addition to a pair of long homers over the leftfield wall, food for four runs, he also smacked out two other safeties. One of these was his leadoff single in the first inning followed by a quick steal of second to set up a 1-0 Gopher lead that was never relinquished.

1960 COLLEGE WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS REVISITED Minnesota made its second trip to the College World Series in 1960 and won its second College World Series title in as many appearances. John Erickson was named the team MVP for Minnesota, joining Jerry Thomas and Dave Winfield (later in 1973) as one of three Golden Gophers to receive College World Series MVP honors. Minnesota locked up in three classic extra-inning games with USC on their way to the championship. In the first matchup with USC, the Golden Gophers produced the biggest comeback in College World Series history as they rallied from an 11-2 deficit to win 12-11 in 10 innings. In the second matchup, the Trojans claimed a 4-3 11-inning thriller. Minnesota claimed the rubber matchup with a 2-1 10-inning victory in the final championship game that was won when Cal Rolloff drew a bases loaded walk in the bottom of the 10th inning.

Four runs in the bottom of the eighth gave Minnesota the rally it needed in an 85 win over Arizona in the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Gopher James Rantz picked up the win in allowing one run in five innings pitched after four runs were scored, one earned, on starter Larry Bertelsen. Although the game was a ragged affair at time – five errors being committed by Minnesota, four by Arizona – it was a thriller to the wire. John Erickson, the Maroon and Gold captain, came up with the fielding gem so far in the eighth inning. The Wildcats had scored the go-ahead run to take a 5-4 lead, and had two men on base with two out and pitcher Mark Clarke at bat. Clarke picked on one of Gopher pitcher James Rantz’ offerings and sent a screaming line drive just to the right of second base. Erickson started at the crack of the bat, leaped sideways with his glove outstretched and hauled in the ball, rolling head-over-heels after the catch. It saved a certain Arizona run, possibly two.

Southern California prolonged the College World Series with an 11th-inning, 4-3 “revenge” victory over Minnesota. A hit, two walks and two errors brought the Trojans their winning marker, the Gophers their initial defeat of the NCAA Tournament and pitcher Bruce Gardner his 17th victory of a campaign marred only by Friday’s loss in relief to Minnesota. Gardner not only whipped the Gophers on a clever-even hitter during which he retired 15 batsmen in order, but the USC chucker also swung a mean hickory for a towering right-field homer and a 3-1 Troy lead in the sixth.’ The Gophers, almost from habit in this tournament, made another comeback for a 3-3 tie in the eighth when Dave Pflepsen hit the first Gopher four-master of the meet. It came with the bridegroom Ron Causton on first as a result of a walk and sailed well over the 343-fence in left field.

Minnesota and USC engaged in a wild back-and-forth game, as the Golden Gophers rallied from a 7-0 and an 11-2 deficit to defeat the Trojans 12-11 in a thrilling 10inning affair. USC got things started with a single run in the top of the first inning, and erupted for six runs in the top of the second to take a 7-0 lead. Minnesota got single runs back in the bottom of the fourth and fifth innings to cut it to 7-2. However, the Trojans responded with a single run in the top of the sixth and three in the top of the seventh to open up an 11-2 lead. Minnesota got its rally started with three runs in the bottom of the seventh that cut the USC lead to 11-5. Ron Causton singled home two runs, and then came around to scored on a run scoring double by Pflepson to cut it down to a six-run margin. The Golden Gophers erupted for five runs in the bottom of the eighth to cut the USC lead to one run at 11-10. Minnesota entered the bottom of the ninth inning still trailing 11-10, but Al Provo reached on an error and came around score to tie the game at 11. Minnesota claimed the 12-11 victory when Effress delivered an RBI single to cap the amazing comeback in the 10th inning.

Bob Wasko, a little-used Minnesota pitcher, provided the impetus the rallying Gophers needed to run off with an 8-3 victory over North Carolina in the first round of the College World Series. Up until Tuesday, Wasko had hurled just 31 innings, not starting a single Big Ten game or playing enough to earn a letter. But against North Carolina he threw eight shutout innings after starter Clyde Nelson gave up three runs in the first inning. Wasko also had a hand in the batting fireworks, which found Minnesota coming to life in a five-run fifth inning and then getting the cushion in a threerun eighth. It was Wasko’s base on balls which proved one of the keys to the big fifth frame capped by Wayne Knapp’s bases-loaded triple.

Minnesota defeated Oklahoma State 3-1 on Saturday, June 18 in the College World Series. The Golden Gophers, who fell behind in both of the previous first innings of its tournament games, took advantage of batting first and forged a 1-0 lead on on an infield single by Dave Pflepson and outfield blows by Johnny Erickson and Tom Moe. In the third inning, Minnesota loaded the bases on a pair of walks and a Barry Effress’ single. That set the stage for Lee Brandt to drive home a pair of runs on a line to left center. Minnesota starter Howard Nathe had a shutout going into the sixth, before Don Soergel socked a home run 343-left over the left field fence.

Minnesota came back from heartbreak to the heights of a national collegiate baseball championship. The Gophers and amazing Jim Rantz, the erstwhile reliever, were within one strike of a 1-0 victory over Southern California in the ninth inning of the jackpot game. And then when the courageous Trojans tied things up on Steve Bach’s screaming single to right, Dick Siebert’s Minnesotans came back to win their second NCAA title in five years the hard 10-inning way by a score of 2-1. Dave Pflepsen led off the first extra frame with a hard grounder down the left field line. He reached second for a double on a head-first slide. Slugger Wayne Knapp swung hard once and then bunted Flip to third on a wellplaced sacrifice. Johnny Erickson, a Gopher fielding hero once again, was passed intentionally. With left-handed Ken Yaryan pitching for Troy, Tom Moe went up to bat for Wayne Haefner. He drew a walk to set the stage for a side-retiring double play. T h e first two pitches to Cal Rolloff were balls, then came a called strike and another ball. Rolloff merely glanced at the next pitch, which was well inside. Umpire-in-chief Bill Summers’ signal of a base on balls and the winning run forced home was hardly necessary, it was so obvious. But that didn’t make it any less sweet to savor. So the Gophers took the rubber game of three straight extra-game thrillers with USC. And for that Rantz simply can’t be given enough credit. The St. Paul senior had never started a Gopher game in three years. But when the chips were down in this college World Series Rantz was supreme. He warmed up for his championship heroics with a winning five-inning relief effort over Arizona, and followed with the complete game. And last night he wound up his Minnesota career with his first starting effort in this sensational manner: a four-hit, six-strikeout, nine-walk masterpiece.

Joe Pollack had three complete game victories in that College World Series, including the clincher, a 5-1 victory over Missouri, in which he gave up just four hits and one run. Pollack is still one of only eight pitchers in the history of the College World Series to win three games. Dick Siebert also became just the second coach in the history of the College World Series to win three championships at the time.

Minnesota came from behind twice to jolt Southern California’s defending NCAA baseball champions 6-5 in the College World Series. Down 5-3 going into the bottom of the ninth, the Gophers scored three runs. Pitcher Joe Pollack drove in one run with a sacrifice fly, another scored on a passed ball and the clincher came in on Dave Hoffman’s single to right. The Gophers started Pollack, who came out on four days rest since stopping Texas A&M 7-3 in the opening round. USC pitcher Walt Fisher had a no-hitter going after six innings, but Minnesota scored three runs in the seventh to tie the game 3-3.

Minnesota collected 16 hits to stop Texas A&M 7-3 in the opening round of the NCAA baseball tournament. The Gophers, for all their cannonading, made rather hard work out of the victory by stranding 11 base runners and having three more runners cut down on the basepaths. They couldn’t actually breathe easily until Bill Davis stroked a two-run single to center in the eighth inning, pulling the Gophers out of a shaky 4-3 lead into a 6-3 margin. Joe Pollack pitched the entire game for the Gophers, scattering nine Texas A&M hits. The Aggies had beaten Pollack 3-2 last March on Minnesota’s spring trip, and the next day claimed a 7-2 win over the Gophers. Ron Wojciak, who hit safely four times, drove in Minnesota’s eventual winning run in the seventh. Dave Hoffman had plunked a wrong-field double down the left field line, and Wojciak’s shot through the middle made it 4-3.

Minnesota showed its Big Ten championship form to a packed Rosenblatt Stadium crowd estimated at 13,000 by bombing Maine 12-0 in the second round of the NCAA baseball tournament. The Gophers pounded out 15 hits, giving them 31 in two victories, and limited Maine to a first-inning single. Fielding errorlessly, and bringing the big crowd to its feet for thunderous ovations with several sensational plays, the Gophers now look as classy as any team in this double elimination. Captain Dewey Markus reached first base for the 10th successive time, the first such performance that coach Dick Siebert can recall in 17 years as Minnesota coach. Archie Clark, who has become the crowd favorite, slammed a triple and two doubles, driving in three runs.Frank Brosseau, Dan Howard and Dick Mielke split the pitching for Minnesota, Brosseau going the first five.

Minnesota’s amazing Gophers capped one of college baseball’s biggest stories ever by whipping Missouri 5-1 to capture the College World Series and the NCAA Championship. Joe Pollack, using a fine fastball and a baffling changeup, held Missouri to four hits. He walked six men and struck out seven. The Gophers collected five hits. Building an early lead at the expense of Missouri’s southpaw Jack Stroud, the Gophers rolled along behind the magnificent pitching of Pollack. It was Pollack’s third victory in the rain-delayed series. It was the Gophers’ third national baseball championship, all under coach Dick Siebert. The others came in 1956 and 1960. But this one goes down as one of college baseball’s biggest surprises and one of the most sparkling chapters in Minnesota athletic history. Rising from a sorry trip into Texas in the spring, the Gophers, fired by captain Duane Markus, with only three seniors on their team, turned a rebuilding year into the national title. The Gophers jumped to a 2-0 lead in the second inning after two were out. An error opened the door and the Gophers stormed through. Frank Brosseau reached second with one out on shortstop John Simmons’ overthrow of first and after Archie Clark fanned, little Dick McCullough, starting because Missouri pitched a southpaw, laced a triple to left center to score Brosseau. Pollack lined a short single to right to score McCullough. Minnesota pushed its lead to 4-1 in the third inning with the aid of a pair of walks. Bill Davis walked with one out and moved to second on a passed ball. Ron Wojciak then drew a walk. Jerry Cawley forced Wojciak, short to second, and reached second with Davis scoring, when Robben, in a double play attempt, threw the relay into the dugout. Brosseau hit a looper down the left field line for a double.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers outwaited Oklahoma’s finest pitcher, then Dave Winfield capped a magnificent pitching performance with two bases-loaded strikeouts in the ninth inning to preserve a 1-0 Minnesota victory in the opening game of the College World Series on Friday, June 9. It was an authentic duel of 7 1/3 innings between superlative pitchers with starkly contrasting styles. Jackson Todd, Oklahoma’s right-handed ace, threw a variety of wicked curves, a slider and an outstanding change of pace that had Gopher hitters lunging and striking out or beating the ball into the dirt. Winfield simply challenged the hitters. He blew it past the Sooners for four or five innings, then – as shadows covered the batting box and lengthened almost to the pitching mound – the Minnesota right-hander began mixing in intimidating fast curves and snapped off and dipped very late into the those shadows around the plate. Neither pitcher needed especially good fielding plays to survive. If they got into mild trouble, they simply struck out the batter. As the Gophers came to bat in the bottom of the eight, Winfield had 12 strikeouts and Todd 10. But then the Gophers, who had been trying to overpower Todd, switched tactics and just tried to meet his offerings. Catcher Tom Buettner drove and inside pitch to left for a single, but was doubled off after an errant sacrifice bunt attempt was popped into the air. With two outs and nobody on, Bruce Nordquist and Joe Comer delivered back-to-back singles to make it first and second. Tim Grice followed with single that just got past the shortstop and into leftfield. Although Comer was out when he got caught in a rundown, Nordquist scored to give Minnesota a 1-0 lead. It wasn’t easy as Oklahoma loaded the bases with one out on Winfield. His first two pitches to Oklahoma shortstop were high, nearly getting away from Buettner. Winfield followed with a couple of strikes and worked it to 3-2. Ford fouled off a 3-2 pitch, but he didn’t even swing at the next pitch – possibly the fastest ball Winfield threw all day. Two out. Oklahoma’s last hope was pinch-hitter Mike Umfleet, a left-handed hitter with a .359 average. Again Winfield threw two balls, and then two strikes. On the next pitch, Winfield recorded his 14th strikeout of the game to give Minnesota the 1-0 victory. Winfield said he was more tired after the game then had been after throwing a complete-game nine-inning shutout against Southern Illinois in the District 4 playoff a week earlier. He threw more pitches against Oklahoma and the game time temperature was 93 degrees.

Kept alive by the clutch pitching of Eddie Bane, the vagaries of a 23-mile-an hour wind and Minnesota offensive failures at crucial points. Arizona State scored three times in the eighth inning to defeat the Gophers 3-0 in College World Series World Series play at Omaha on Sunday, June 11. Ken Herbst outpitched Bane for seven innings, giving up two hits, walking no one and striking out five in that stretch. He moved the ball around, kept ahead of the hitters and had them hitting into the ground – a necessity with the wind blowing directly toward left field. Herbst’s best pitch was the slider – but he threw one too may. In the eighth, with one Wildcat on base after a Golden Gopher error, Herbst aimed the slider at the knees of Arizona second baseman Bill Berger. It sailed, coming in waist high, and Berger drove it over the left field fence. Gopher left fielder Dave Winfield ran up the 12-foot wooden barrier, lept high above it, but the ball cleared his glove by a couple of feet. Bane, who had pitched himself out of holes all afternoon, quickly polished off the Gophers in the ninth. In the fourth inning, Winfield singled sharply to left, but was wiped out at second when the wind caught Tom Buettner’s foul and blew it back into a fair territory. The ball stayed up forever, it seemed, before Arizona State’s first baseman missed a diving catch, but Winfield did not run on the play, although there were two out when the ball dropped fair, Bane pounded on it and threw Winfield out at second. Arizona State Head Coach Jim Brock, noted that the play turned the whole game around. Minnesota had another good threat in the fifth when they had runners on second and third, before Bane got out of the jam.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers got a solid pitching performance from freshman Steve Comer, their first solid hitting of the tournament and three double plays when they need them the most to defeat Georgia Southern on Monday, June 12. With the win, the Golden Gophers advanced to the semifinal round of the College World Series. Minnesota survived a shaky start when two errors in the second inning gave up a run. Then the Golden Gophers begin to hit. In the bottom of the second, Golden Gopher catcher Tom Buettner drove a waist-high slider over the leftfield wall to tie the game. In the third inning, Dave Winfield hit a ball that cleared the left field wall by at least 10 feet at the 380foot point. Winfield’s homer finished the Georgia Southern starter, and Minnesota jumped on his successor for three runs in the fourth inning – without a hit. Three walks, an error and a fielder’s choice did the damage. Minnesota picked up its last run on Steve Shimek’s triple in the seventh, and Georgia Southern managed one in the last inning. Comer had to battled nearly every hitter. His breaking pitches weren’t catching the corners and he relied on his fast ball. He had tired in the 90-degree heat by the ninth inning and Siebert brought in Bob Turnbull who produced a strikeout and a double play to close out the game for Minnesota.

USC, college baseball’s defending champion, clubbed three Minnesota pitchers for eight runs in the ninth inning to rally from a 7-0 deficit to defeat the Golden Gophers 8-7, and eliminated them from the College World Series on Tuesday, June 13. The Trojans comeback nullified a superb performance by Minnesota starter Dave Winfield, who had shut out the Californians on one hit – a weak grounder to short in the sixth inning – and had struck out 15. Winfield pitching with three days rest, had thrown 165 pitches going into the fatal ninth. It was obvious that he was tiring and the Trojans choked up on their bats, shortened their swings and began to punch the ball. USC got to Winfield for two singles with one out and Trojan Fred Lynn hit the ball down the right field line. Gopher first baseman Chris Brown bobbled it, and then catcher Tom Buettner dropped the throw to the plate. Two runs scored and the Trojans were on their way. Another single scored the Trojans third run and finished Winfield. His successor Bob Turnbull, gave up three singles, threw two passed balls and was charged with three runs and got nobody out. Gordon Peterson inherited a 7-5 score and two base runners. He faced the three batters. The first singled, driving in a run. The second lofted a fly to deep right, tying the game. Marvin Cobb, a pinch-runner, then stole second and came home on Creighton Tevlin’s single to center field. Winfield was also 3-for-4 with an RBI, while John Holm went 2-for-4 with a run and two RBI. Winfield had 29 strikeouts in 17.1 innings of work in the College World Series.

1977 COLLEGE WORLD SERIES Last season marked the 30th anniversary of the Golden Gophers trip the College World Series in 1977. Minnesota made its fifth trip to the College World Series that year with future Hall of Famer Paul Molitor playing shortstop. The Golden Gophers went 1-2 and finished sixth in the College World Series, and bowed out to eventual National Champion Arizona State.

Future Hall of Famer Paul Molitor played shortstop for Minnesota from 1975-77.

Top: Tim Loberg scores on a sacrifice fly in Minnesota’s 5-1 victory over Florida at Bierman Field in a game that sent the Golden Gophers to their fifth College World Series.

QUOTING THE TEAM Tim Loberg: “The regional at Siebert Field was unbelievable. It was packed for every game, and there were people sitting in folding chairs down the third base line inside the fence. During the introductions, the atmosphere made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. We played great at home all year and did not lose a game on that field. We continued that in the regional, and our pitching was dominant. I think the experiences that stand out in the College World Series were the opening game introductions. I felt like my feet were not on the ground during those introductions. Also in the game against Baylor when it was pouring rain in the bottom of the ninth, and the base were loaded with a 3-2 count for Dan Morgan. One more ball and our season was over, and he came up with a big strikeout to send it to the next day. We eventually won that game. It was also exciting to play with a future Hall of Famer in Paul Molitor. Paul did so many amazing things on the field that year and in his career. However, he was also the consummate teammate. He has always been a Gopher through and through no matter how much success he had. Playing with him and that great team in 1977 is something I will always remember.” John Anderson: “The 1976 team we had was very good. It ended up getting an at-large big and having to travel to a very good Arizona State team for the regional round. After the 1976 team lost to Arizona State it immediately was on a mission to host the regionals in 1977, and make it to Omaha. The 1977 team had a lot of great players and an unbelievable pitching staff, but what was probably the best thing about it is that they were so determined to make it to Omaha that no one cared who got the credit. I think when I got the MVP honors, it was very humbling and just showed the theme of our team and the fact that it did not matter who got honored the goal was to get to Omaha. I remember when we played in the regional at home in front of packed crowd. It was a great environment, and it made it even more excited when our pitching just dominated and gave up only three runs in the three games. The 1977 team was great group of individual players, but what stood out more was how close the group was with each other.” Head Coach Dick Siebert advanced to his fifth College World Series in 1977.

Pitcher Dan Morgan picked up a win in the College World Series against Baylor.

Tom Mee: “Getting to the College World Series is the culmination of a dream that every player has when they play College Baseball. We had a very good team that year, including a future Hall of Famer in Paul Molitor and a very good pitching staff. In fact we were No. 2 in the nation heading into the College World Series. I also remember playing the NCAA Regionals at Siebert (which was known as Bierman Field at the time) in front of 3,000 fans, and how exciting a moment it was to advance to theCollege World Series in front of our home fans. I will also cherish the time I had playing under Dick Siebert. At the beginning of every series Paul (Molitor) and I would meet in his office with him and he would give us a chart of where each hitter would hit the ball, and it seemed as if he was never wrong. I will always cherish the time I had playing under Siebert. I think one of the things that stood out to me was the last game that we lost to Arizona State. It was so hard to take my jersey off for the last time, because I loved playing with this program so much.” Paul Molitor: “The experiences from 1976 really helped our team out in 1976. Once we got done with our Texas trip, we did not play a lot of highly ranked teams that year. It was a tough situation for us to go to Arizona State with all the future professional talent they had on the roster and pull out a win. I think after they beat us we got back to work and realized we needed to win Big Ten, host the regionals and try to get back to Omaha. We worked hard and accomplished those goals in 1977. When we played the regionals at Siebert Field it was a great environment . It was sold out and we had the fans behind us. It was about as electric as Siebert Field can be. We did not want to miss out on the opportunity to capitalize on that great setting and advance to the College World Series. We really put it together with great offense, strong defense and very good pitching to advance to Omaha. Whe we got to the College World Series, I remember being a pitch away from being eliminated against Baylor in two games in the College World Series. It was an exciting moment when Dan (Morgan) stepped up in a tough situation and delivered a strike to keep us alive. The Baylor win was the highlight of the 1977 College World Series for us. That was a very special game. That team was special, because we realized collectively that the team concept made us successfully. I think that team mentality was represented in large part when we named John (Anderson) our team MVP as the student manager. There is no question that it was a tight group of guys. We played well together and had fun hanging out and being on the same team as each other.”

With the loss, the Golden Gophers fell into the loser’s bracket, while Cal-State Los Angeles moved into the winners bracket. Neither team had a hit for the first three innings. Cal State Los Angeles got things going with two outs in the top of the fourth when Chris Brown raced to a double, and came around to score on Chris Carstenson’s single to right to make it 1-0. In the sixth, Jim Taylor started with a walk for Cal-State Los Angeles. Marty Shepeherd followed with an attempted sacrifice bunt, but Shepherd reached when the throw to get him at first was off line. Gary Adair followed with a single that bounced off first base to score Taylor to make it 2-0. Two batters later, Shepherd scored on a fielder’s choice. Cartenson finished the four-run inning with a two-run single to make it 5-0. Minnesota got ignited in its half of the sixth when Tom Jagiela and Tom Mee started with back-to-back singles. Two outs later, Mike Bruss drove them both in with a two-run single to make it 5-2. In the seventh inning, Ken Mauer singled and scored on a one-out RBI triple by Brian Denman to cut the deficit to 5-3. Jagiela followed with an infield hit to score Denman to make it 5-4.

No. 2 tried harder but was no match for No. 1 as the University of Minnesota was overpowered by Arizona State 8-4 on Tuesday, June 15 at the College World Series. The Golden Gophers, ranked No. 2 entering the national tournament, found no way to hold off the No. 1 ranked Sun Devils potent attack. Arizona State entered the tournament carrying a .347 team batting average and producing 9.3 runs per game. What was frustrating for Minnesota was the fact that the Sun Devils scored six of their eight runs with two outs in the inning. The other two runs came off homers from Bob Horner and Brandt Humphrey. In all, Arizona State pounded out 14 hits, including shortstop Mike Henderson’s 4-for-5 performance with three RBI. Minnesota jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning, collecting three of the six hits the Golden Gophers would get in the game. Tom Mee and Paul Molitor started things with a pair of infield hits. Mee scored on a runscoring single by Mike Bruss to make it 1-0. Ken Mauer followed with a shot that nearly took Arizona State pitcher Jerry Vasquez’s glove off. However, the ball deflected to Horner who got Mauer on the force. Molitor did come home to scored on the play to make it 2-0. Arizona State came right back with three runs in the top of the second to take a 3-2 lead. Horner delivered a solo home run in the top of the third to make it 42. Minnesota got a run back in the bottom of the third when Mee singled and moved to second on an error. He eventually came around to score on a wild pitch during a Mauer strikeout to make it 4-3. The Sun Devils followed with three runs in the top of the fourth to move ahead 7-3. Each team tacked on a single run for the final tally of 8-4. Minnesota ended up scoring four runs in each of its three College World Series contests. The Golden Gophers lost 7-4 to Cal-State Los Angeles, won 4-3 in 11 innings against Baylor and lost 8-4 to Arizona State.

big ten championships 1933 [12-2, 6-1 Big Ten] REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS Head Coach Frank McCormick This year marks the 75th anniversary of Minnesota’s first Big Ten title in school history. Hall of Fame (ABCA) Coach Frank McCormick took over the program in 1931. Two years after he took over the program, he turned around the Golden Gophers from a team that was 2-7 and finished in 8th in 1931 to a Big Ten champion, who went 6-1 and finished 12-2 overall in 1933. The Golden Gophers split their first four games of the season to start out 2-2. Minnesota also lost its first Big Ten contest of the year at Wisconsin 15-3 on May 6. The Golden Gophers did not lose the rest of the year, as they ran off 10 straight victories to close out the season. Minnesota won the second game of a doubleheader against Wisconsin 8-3 to get the streak started. The Golden Gophers ended up sweeping a doubleheader at Chicago, and swept Northwestern at home to move to 5-1 in Big Ten play. Minnesota put an exclamation point on the conference season with 20-3 victory over Iowa on May 28. The Golden Gophers finished with a better winning percentage then Michigan and Illinois who tied for second at 82.

1935 [17-3, 8-3 Big Ten] REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS Head Coach Frank McCormick

Two years after claiming the program’s first Big Ten title, Minnesota duplicated the feat as Head Coach Frank McCormick led the 1935 team to a 17-3 overall, and an 8-3 conference mark. The 1935 squad started the season 9-0, which is the second-best start in school history. Minnesota swept a pair of games at Nebraska by a total of 28-7 (8-2 on Apr. 12 and 20-5 on Apr. 13) to begin the season. The Golden Gophers went on to win the next seven games, before dropping a 3-2 decision at Northwestern to fall to 11 in Big Ten play. After defeating Wisconsin, Minnesota split a doubleheader with Iowa to move to 3-2 in conference play. The Golden Gophers swept Purdue at home and Iowa on the road to move out to 7-2 in Big Ten play. Minnesota finished with a split at Wisconsin to end the season with an 8-3 conference record. The Golden Gophers narrowly edged out a trio of second-place teams as Illinois, Chicago and Ohio State all finished 7-3.

1956 [33-9, 11-2 Big Ten] REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS Head Coach Dick Siebert The Minnesota baseball program claimed its first College World Series Championship over Arizona 121. It also marked the first Big Ten title for Minnesota under head coach Dick Siebert, and the third in the program’s history. Minnesota started out 3-5 on the season, but responded by winning 21 of its next 22 games to move to 24-6. The Golden Gophers lost their first Big Ten game of the year to Wisconsin, and proceeded to rip off 11 straight conference wins to move to 11-1 in Big Ten play. Minnesota finally had its conference-winning streak snapped at 11 games when it lost at Ohio State 4-2. That proved to be the Golden Gophers last Big Ten game, as their doubleheader with Indiana was rained out the next day. Minnesota finished 11-2 in Big Ten play to second place Ohio State’s 9-3 conference record to give the Golden Gophers their first Big Ten title since 1935. The Golden Gophers hosted Notre Dame in the District IV NCAA Regional Semifinals at Delta Field.

The Fighting Irish ruined the opener for the Golden Gophers winning 4-3 in 10 innings. However, Minnesota responded by scoring 25 runs the next day to defeat Notre Dame 15-5 and 10-1 to advance to the NCAA Regional Finals. Jerry Kindall homered three times on the day, including a pair of homers in Minnesota’s 10-1 win in the second game. Jerry Thomas and Kindall helped combine to give Minnesota a 5-0 win over Ohio University in the first game of the NCAA Regional Finals at Athens, Ohio. Thomas pitched a complete-game shutout, giving up just three hits and striking out 13 batters, while Kindall went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI. The same two players had a big role for Minnesota in the second game as well. Ohio University jumped out to a 6-4 lead in the first two innings. Dean Maas came in during the second inning and pitched seven strong innings of relief to keep the Bobcats at bay. With Minnesota trailing 65 heading into the ninth, Kindall delivered a tworun homer to give the Golden Gophers a 7-6 lead. It was the fourth straight game that Kindall had homered in for Minnesota. Thomas came in to the game in the ninth and struck out to two batters, including the final one of the game with runners on first and third to give Minnesota its first berth in the College World Series. In its first game of the College World Series, Minnesota shutout Wyoming 3-0 behind Ron Craven’s complete-game shutout. Craven struck out nine batters in the win and was also 2-for-3 with one RBI, which was the first run of the game for Minnesota. Shorty Cochran was also 2-for-4 with two RBI in the game for the Golden Gophers. Minnesota’s Jerry Thomas outdueled Arizona’s Carl Thomas (who was from Minneapolis) to give the Golden Gophers a 3-1 win over the Wildcats in the second game of the College World Series. Minnesota’s Thomas gave up just three hits, one run and struck out 11 in the win. Gillen delivered an RBI double in the top of the seventh that broke a 1-1 tie and gave Minnesota the lead for good. The Golden Gophers amped up the offense for the third game of the College World Series with a 13-5 win over Mississippi. In that game, Minnesota belted out 19 hits. Kindall also became the first and only player to this day to hit for the cycle in the College World Series. Kindall finished 4-for-5 with four runs and two RBI. The Golden Gophers put themselves into the championship game with an 8-3 win over Bradley on June 12. Oistad pitched a complete-game, striking out 13 batters on the way to the victory. Cochran was one of the main hitting heros for the Golden Gophers going 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs and two RBI. Minnesota’s championship thoughts were halted momentarily when they lost the first game to Arizona 10-4. However, the Golden Gophers came back on June 14, 1956 to crush the Wildcats 12-1 en route to the program’s first National Championship. Thomas gave up just five hits and one unearned run in nine innings, while captain Bill Horning was the hitting hero, belting two home runs and going 4-for-5 with three run and five RBI. Thomas was named the Most Outstanding Player of the College World Series, as he went 2-0 with a 0.49 ERA, giving up eight hits and 18 innings of work in the College World Series. Kindall, Jack McCartan and Thomas all received First-Team All-Big Ten honors, while Doug Gillen and Oistad received second-team honors. Dave Lindblom also received Third-team honors for the Golden Gophers. Thomas tied Ohio State’s Galen Cisco for wins in Big Ten play at 5-0, while Kindall led the Big Ten hitting (.440) led the league in hitting, Gillen in homers (7) and McCartan in RBI (17). Kindall and Thomas became the third and fourth Golden Gophers to be named First-Team AllAmericans.

1958 [26-7, 11-3 Big Ten] REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS Head Coach Dick Siebert Minnesota won its fourth Big Ten title in school history, and its second under Dick Siebert. After dropping the first two games of the year to Texas and Rice, the Golden Gophers ran off 12 straight victo-

ries. That run included 10 consecutive road wins, five wins in a row over Rice (W, 7-5), Houston (W, 30; W, 10-3) and Oklahoma (W, 8-5; W, 2-1). Minnesota dropped its first two Big Ten contests to Indiana and Ohio State, but bounced back to win its next four to move to 4-2 in conference play. The Golden Gophers used an exciting 11inning victory over Purdue to claim their fourth consecutive win. Minnesota fell behind 4-2 sixth inning, but battled back to send it to extra innings. Skeeter Nelson’s two-run single helped give Minnesota a 6-5 11-innning victory. Fred Bruckbauer went the distance for the Golden Gophers, as he struck out 12 batters in 11 innings, and gave up four earned runs. The Golden Gophers lost their next Big Ten contest at Illinois to fall to 4-3. Minnesota won its next five conference contests to set up a showdown in the final week of the season with Big Ten leader Michigan State, who entered the weekend leading by a half game at 10-3. Going into the final weekend, Ohio State also had an outside chance at the title with a 9-4 record heading into the weekend. In the first game of the doubleheader, Minnesota fell behind 2-0 in the top of the fifth. The Golden Gophers responded quickly when Woody Erickson doubled home Dennis Klark to cut the Spartan lead to 2-1. Skeeter Nelson followed with a two-run home run to left-centerfield to give Minnesota the 3-2 lead. That lead held up as Buckbauer did not give up another run, as he pitched nine innings, gave up five hits and two runs. Despite the game-one victory, the Golden Gophers still needed to win the second part of twinbill to clinch the Big Ten title. In the second inning, Minnesota needed four walks and a single to scored a pair of runs to take a 2-0 lead. That lead held up until the top of the seventh inning, thanks to six shutout innings by Golden Gophers starter Saxe Roberts. Two errors in the top of the seventh put Minnesota’s lead in peril, as the Spartans scored a run to make it 2-1 and had runners on second and third with two outs. However, Bruckbauer came in to strike out Spartan batter Dick Golden to give the Golden Gophers the victory, and their second Big Ten title in three years. Jack McCartan was named First-Team All-Big Ten and was also a First-Team All-American, while Nelson received Second-Team All-Big Ten honors. Minnesota finished 26-7 overall and 11-3 on the season.

1959 [22-8, 10-2 Big Ten] REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS Head Coach Dick Siebert For the first time in school history, Minnesota won back-to-back Big Ten titles as the Golden Gophers claimed their third Big Ten title in four years with the a conference championship in 1959. Minnesota started out the year with three consecutive losses, but responded with 13 straight wins to move to 133. Part of that winning streak, was three Big Ten wins to help the Golden Gophers jump out to a 3-0 conference start. Minnesota had its 13-game winning streak at the hands of Wisconsin on May 1. After the loss, Minnesota sat one game behind Illinois at 3-1 in Big Ten play. The Golden Gophers

responded by sweeping a doubleheader at Northwestern to set up a battle between Minnesota and Illinois for first place. Both teams entered the game with 5-1 conference marks. Just like a year ago against Michigan State, it was Skeeter Nelson’s bat and Fred Bruckbauer’s arm that led the Golden Gopher to victory. Minnesota jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning when Ron Causten delivered an RBI double. Nelson added a two-run single to push the score to 3-0. Bruckbauer led off the bottom of the fifth with an infield single, and eventually came around to score on a Nelson RBI groundout to make it 4-0. After Illinois cut the lead to 4-1, Wayne Knapp delivered a solo home run to make it 5-1 in the bottom of the seventh. Bruckbauer gave up just one run and struck out 11 in a complete-game effort. Minnesota added to the momentum of the Illinois win with a six straight victories, which helped the Golden Gophers move to 10-1 in Big Ten play. Overall, Minnesota won 21 of 22 games after starting out 0-3. The Golden Gophers had their Big Ten winning streak snapped by Michigan State in 64 loss on May 22 to drop them to 10-2. That loss prevented Minnesota from clinching the Big Ten that day. The Golden Gophers traveled to Ann Arbor to close out the Big Ten season, but had the doubleheader rained out. With the cancellation of the twinbill, Minnesota clinched the Big Ten title for the second year in a row. Ron Causton, Knapp and Bruckbauer all received First-Team All-Big Ten honors, while John Erickson and Dick Siebert Jr. were name SecondTeam All-Big Ten. Causton was also named a FirstTeam All-American. Minnesota finished 22-8 overall and 10-2 in Big Ten play.

1960 [34-7-1, 12-2-1 Big Ten] REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS Head Coach Dick Siebert Minnesota claimed its second National Title in the program’s history in 1960, and also became the first Big Ten team to win three straight Big Ten titles in 40 years. The Golden Gophers also claimed their fourth Big Ten title in five years. Minnesota started out the season 3-4 after returning from its annual Texas trip. From that point, the Golden Gophers ripped off a then school-record 17-game winning streak.

2000 [38-24, 20-8 Big Ten] REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS Head Coach John Anderson Minnesota was able to capture its 18th Big Ten title en route to a 20-8 conference record. The Golden

Gophers were led by pitcher Mike Kowbow, who compiled a 9-2 record in 13 starts and posted a 3.71 ERA. Kobow was also one of seven Gophers to earn All-Big Ten honors and the only first-team player. Beginning the season taking on Illinois State, Minnesota jumped out to a fast start taking two out of three in the series, putting up 18 runs in the three games. The ensuing roadtrip would not be so kind for the Gophers as they went 1-5 against

Florida Atlantic and McNeese State. Returning from the road trip, Minnesota grabbed two of three games at the Metrodome Tournament, defeating Georgia and Notre Dame before losing to Wake Forest. Finishing their nonconference portion of the schedule by taking two out of three from Wichita State, Minnesota provided two key wins that would help them land the NCAA regional. Minnesota opened Big Ten play by sweeping four games on the road against defending Big Ten Tournament Champion Michigan. Led by their starting pitching, the series was highlighted by Ben Birk’s one-hitter on Saturday. After series splits with Northwestern and Ohio State, Minnesota would win 11 of their next 12, including a series against Iowa in which Minnesota outscored the Hawkeyes 34-9. The Golden Gophers were able to wrap up their Big Ten conference title in the final series against Purdue. With the magic number to clinch at one heading into game three of the series, Minnesota provided an exciting finish to a great season. Trailing 5-4 heading into the bottom of the seventh, a Rick Brousseau double scored Scott Howard to tie the game. Finishing off the Boilermakers was Mark Devore, who singled to score Brousseau and gave Minnesota the Big Ten title. Along with Kobow’s First-Team All-Big Ten honors, Jack Hannahan and Josh Holthaus each claimed Second-Team All-Big Ten honors. Luke Appert, Ben Birk, Scott Howard and Rick Brosseau each claimed Third-Team honors. Head coach John Anderson garnered Big Ten coach of the year. Minnesota finished the year 38-24 (20-8).

2001 [39-21, 19-8 Big Ten] BIG TEN TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS Head Coach John Anderson Despite a tough start for Minnesota which saw a top pitcher sidelined for most of the season, the Golden Gophers showed their resiliency and fought back to win the Big Ten tournament title on their way to the

Big Ten title. Despite sweeping Northwestern to finish the season 19-8 in conference play, the Golden Gophers would end up in third place, just one game out of first. Minnesota started off the Big Ten Tournament with 4-2 win over Penn State, and then moved on to defeat Illinois 15-11 to set up a matchup with Ohio State. The Golden Gophers grabbed an early 3-1 lead, and led the Buckeyes most of the way until they tied it at 5-5 in the bottom of the eighth. Luke Appert answered with a clutch two-out RBI single, which gave Minnesota a 6-5 lead. The Golden Gophers eventually won by that final tally. The victory set up a rematch from the previous year against Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament Championship. Birk, who was making just his second start since returning from a serious injury suffered earlier in the year, gave up just two runs in seven innings of work. Minnesota trailed 2-0 early, but Jason Kennedy homered to cut the lead to 2-1. Scott Welch ended up scoring in the seventh on a double-play ball to tie the game, and Scott Howard came home to score the go-ahead run on a Sam Steidl RBI single to make it 3-2. Chad Drexler came and pitched two shutout innings to give Minnesota the Big Ten Tournament title. Jack Hannahan received Big Ten Tournament MVP honors, while Mike Kobow, Josh Holthaus, Kennedy and Steidl were named to the AllTournament team. The Golden Gophers battled defending National Champion LSU in their first NCAA Tournament game and fell behind quickly 5-0. Minnesota came off the mat and led 8-7 after six innings of play. The Tigers battled back and held on to win 10-9. Minnesota dropped a 9-3 loss to California to watch its season come to an end the next day. Kobow and Hannahan were named First-Team All-Big Ten, while Kurt Haring, Steidl and Welch claimed Second-Team honors. Jason Shupe, Kennedy and Holthaus were also named Third-Team All-Big Ten. Hannahan also received Third-Team All-American honors.

2002 [32-26, 18-10 Big Ten] REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS

NCAA tournament for the fourth straight year. Just a year removed from a regular season conference title, the final week would decide who would be crowned Big Ten champs, with Minnesota right in the thick of it. The Golden Gophers gave up 18 runs in season-opening loss to Central Michigan, but Minnesota was able to bounce back to win the next two games against the Chippewas. The Golden Gophers were 3-6 during a tough non-conference stretch that saw them play No. 8 Auburn, South Alabama, North Carolina, Arkansas, and eventual College World Series champions Miami. In the game against the Razorbacks, star pitcher Ben Birk lasted two innings before being struck by a line-drive in the face, putting him out with an injury for most of the season and furthering concerns for Minnesota. Minnesota began conference play by taking two out of three from Purdue. After defeating Ball State and Butler, the Golden Gophers took three out of four from Indiana and made head coach John Anderson the winningest coach in Big Ten history on Mar. 30 against the Hoosiers. From there the Gophers rolled. Minnesota went on to take three out of four from both Michigan and Michigan State, punctuating the strong effort with a 26-8 victory over the Wolverines in the final game of their series. The Golden Gophers entered a huge matchup with Ohio State at 15-4 in Big Ten play, and were looking at winning their second straight Big Ten conference title. However, it was not to be as the Buckeyes swept Minnesota and went on to win the

Head Coach John Anderson In a season where Minnesota collected its second Big Ten regular season title in three seasons, it was a never-say-die attitude that carried the Gophers through a rollercoaster season. Beginning Big Ten play at 7-6, and proceeding to win 11 of their next 15 to capture the conference crown made the 2002 season a special one for Minnesota. With Luke Appert winning Tri-Player of the year, C.J. Woodrow

winning Big Ten Pitcher of the Year, and head coach John Anderson picking up his second Big Ten Coach of the Year in three seasons, Minnesota had all the key elements to success in place. The Golden Gophers started off the season getting swept on the road at defending National Champion Miami (Fla.) and at Northwestern State. Minnesota would continue to struggle at the Hormel Classic with Florida Atlantic, losing the tournament opener. The Golden Gophers bounced back to defeat #20 Alabama the following game. However, Minnesota lost the next two games to fall to 1-9. Minnesota regrouped, as they proceeded to sweep Valparaiso before splitting a two-game series with No. 9 Nebraska. After taking three of four from Central Michigan, the Golden Gophers headed into Big Ten play with an 8-12 record. After splitting with Michigan State to open conference


big ten championships play, Minnesota would take three out of four from the Wolverines to build some momentum. After splitting with Penn State and losing three of four to Illinois, the Gophers rebounded with an 11-game winning streak, including a sweep of Purdue to cap it off, the The Golden Gophers found themselves suddenly in the drivers’ seat to win the Big Ten title. Heading into the final series against Ohio State, Minnesota held a slim half game lead over the Buckeyes. Minnesota dropped the first game 13-3, but bounced back with a 4-0 victory in the next game behind a complete-game victory from Woodrow. The Buckeyes took the half game lead right back with a 9-2 victory in third game of the series and led by a half game heading into the final game of the year. Ohio State led 5-3 going into the top of the sixth, but David Roach and Jeremy Beaulieu each had RBI singles to tie the game at 5-5. Minnesota scored three runs in the top of the seventh on RBI singles by Roach and David Hrncirik, along with a sacrifice fly by Ben Pattee to make it 8-5. Minnesota closed out the game to claim the regular-season title. Amazingly the Big Ten conference lead shifted on four occasions in the final weekend. Minnesota hosted the Big Ten Tournament, but fell victim to a 5-2 upset in the first game to Northwestern. The Golden Gophers regrouped with a 6-0 shutout victory against Michigan State, and an 11-5 win over the Wildcats to knock them out of the tournament. Minnesota saw its season end at the hands of Ohio State in the tournament final when it lost 5-2. Appert, Woodrow and Scott Welch were named First-Team All-Big Ten, while Jason Kennedy received Second-Team honors. Beaulieu, Pattee and Sam Steidl also received Third-Team All-Big Ten. Appert also received Third-Team All-Big Ten honors.

Minnesota won the last game to enter the final weekend at 21-5 in Big Ten play. Glen Perkins pitched a complete-game and helped Minnesota defeat Ohio State 9-2 to clinch its second consecutive Big Ten regular-season title. Perkins outdueled 2003 Big Ten Pitcher of the Year Scott Lewis in that game. Minnesota won three of four from Ohio State to finish with a school-record 24 Big Ten wins. It was one win short of the conference record. The Golden Gophers hosted the Big Ten Tournament, and got off to a strong start with victories over Penn State (4-3) and Ohio State (5-4). Minnesota needed one more victory to claim both the regular-season and tournament titles, but the Buckeyes bounced back to win 10-8 and 17-10. Minnesota traveled to Long Beach for the NCAA Regionals, and lost its opener to Washington 5-3. In the next game, the Golden Gophers were behind Pepperdine 5-2 heading into the ninth inning. Minnesota rallied for five runs, and went ahead on an RBI single by Scott Welch. The 7-5 victory was Anderson’s 800th at Minnesota. The Golden Gophers season came to an end later that day when it lost 4-1 to Washington in the next game. Luke Appert became the first player to win back-to-back Big Ten Player of the Year honors since Barry Larkin in 1984 and 85. Glen Perkins was 10-2 with a 2.91 ERA and 117 strikeouts in 105.1 innings to claim Big Ten Freshman of the Year. Anderson also received Big Ten Coach of the Year honors for the third time in four years. Ten players were named All-Big Ten, as Appert, Welch, Sam Steidl and Perkins received First-Team honors. Andy Hunter, Roach, Jeff Moen and C.J. Woodrow each received Second-Team honors, while Matt Loberg and Ben Pattee had Third-Team honors.

how the gophers stack up

HOW THE GOPHERS STACK UP From 1963 to 2007, Minnesota had 45 consecutive seasons of a .500 or better winning percent. That streak was only topped by four Division I schools in the nation (Florida State - 60, St. John’s - 56, Miami - 50 and Clemson - 50). The 45 consecutive .500 or better seasons was also a Big Ten record. The Golden Gophers also set a conference record by qualifying for seven straight Big Ten Tournament championship games from 2001-07. That streak was the second-best in the nation going into last year. It was only topped by Oral Roberts who has now made a conference tournament championship 11 years in a row.

Each year the University of Minnesota baseball program presents the David Chelesnik Jr. Scholarship Award to an incoming athlete who best demonstrates the special qualities of courage, determination and perseverance that were exhibited by David. This special scholarship award is given in memory of an outstanding student-athlete who died of bone cancer on Labor Day, 1984, after completing one year of a lifelong dream — to play for the Golden Gophers. The memory of his courage in the face of insurmountable odds will long be cherished by those who knew him.
