Kindall, a former big-league infielder, won three College World Series championships (1976, 1980 and 1986) as head coach of the Arizona Wildcats. He coached many of Arizona's all-time legends, including 1980 Golden Spikes Award winner Terry Francona, Chip Hale, Trevor Hoffman, JT Snow and Scott Erickson. Francona's former players were among the baseball figures who hailed Kindall as a moral, disciplined winner. Click on the attached stories for more.
