Craig Sorensen HOF
     This slugging third baseman was a three-year letterman earning second-team All-America honors as a senior. During his career he led the team in batting average (1955), home runs (1955-57), and stolen bases (1957). He helped Arizona qualify for the College World Series twice, including the school's first championship game appearance during his junior season, 1956. As a sophomore he led the team in batting average, while hitting a single-season school-record 11 home runs. At the time of his induction, his career total of 28 home runs still ranked seventh in the record books, and his stolen-base total of 57 still ranked ninth. He remains one of just two Arizona players to lead the Wildcats in home runs for three straight seasons. Despite playing in an era of wooden bats, at the time of his induction he was still Arizona's career co-leader in slugging percentage.
