Winfield named to all-time College World Series team

Dave Winfield, who led the Gophers baseball team to third place at the 1973 NCAA championships, was named to the All-Time College World Series team by the Omaha (Neb.) World Herald.
Winfield played pitcher and outfield at Minnesota from 1971-73, and earned series MVP honors his final year for hitting .467 in four games with seven hits in 15 at-bats with two RBIs and one home run.
The other players who were named to the team are pitchers Steve Arlin (from Ohio State who appeared in the CWS in 1965 and ’66), Burt Hooton (Texas in 1969 and ’70), catcher Mike Day (Oklahoma State, 1982, ’83, ’84 and ’85), first baseman Will Clark (Mississippi State, 1985), second baseman Todd Walker (LSU, 1993 and ’94), shortstop Spike Owen (Texas, 1981 and ’82), third baseman Robin Ventura (Oklahoma State, 1986 and ’87), outfielders Barry Bonds (Arizona State, 1983 and ’84), Mark Kotsay (Cal-State Fullerton, 1994 and ’95), designated hitter Pete Incaviglia (Oklahoma State, 1983, ’84, and ’85) and Coach Rod DeDeaux (USC, 1951, ’55, ’58, ’60, ’61, ’63, ’64, ’66, ’68, ’70, ’71, ’72, ’73, ’74 and ’78).
Voting was conducted through ballots printed in the newspaper during a four-week period. Winfield trailed only Incaviglia, Bonds, Ventura and Clark in votes.
