Charles Shoemaker HOF
     A durable, quick infielder, he led Arizona to second place at the College World Series in 1959 and third in 1960. During his three varsity seasons at U of A he was named third-team All America in 1959, second-team in 1960, and first-team All America in 1961,attaining the rare distinction of earning All America honors at two different positions (shortstop and second base). Over his U of A career, he led the Wildcats in at-bats, hits, triples, and stolen bases. At the time of his induction he still held the U of A record for triples in a season (12) and in a career (31) and was fifth in strike-out/ at-bat ratio for a season, having struck out only six times in 1961. Upon graduation he was drafted by the major league Kansas City Athletics. His U of A coach, Frank Sancet, called him the best college infielder he had ever seen.
