1956 NCAA National Champions

“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.”
