Former Alabama All-American first baseman Dave Magadan, who led the Crimson Tide to the championship game of the 1983 College World Series, was elected to the College Baseball Hall of Fame as the top vote-getter in the 2010 class.
“Dave Magadan was an overwhelming choice for this year’s class,” said Mike Gustafson, Hall of Fame chairman and executive director of the College Baseball Foundation. “He put up amazing numbers during his college career and will be a wonderful addition to the Hall of Fame.”
Joining Magadan are Alan Bannister (SS, Arizona State), Bob Bennett (head coach, Fresno Stare), Eddy Furniss (1B, LSU), Don Heinkel (P, Wichita State), Wally Kincaid (head coach, Cerritos College), George Sisler (P/OF, Michigan), B.J. Surhoff (C, North Carolina), Charles Teague (2B, Wake Forest) and Richard Wortham (P, Texas).
Magadan had a stellar three-year career with the Crimson Tide, capped by a phenomenal junior season that saw him set the SEC single-season record with a .525 batting average. The Alabama junior shattered school and Southeastern Conference records that still stand today in becoming the 1983 Golden Spikes Award winner, presented annually by USA Baseball.
His .439 career batting average remains at the top of the Southeastern Conference career records.
