Former University of Wisconsin Oshkosh shortstop Tim Jorgensen has been selected for induction into the College Baseball Hall of Fame.
Jorgensen established numerous National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III records while playing for the UW Oshkosh Titans from 1992 until 1995.
Jorgensen will be a member of the Hall’s seventh induction class that also includes Lou Brock of Southern University (La.), Nomar Garciaparra of Georgia Tech and Brad Wilkerson of the University of Florida. Coaches Ed Cheff of Lewis-Clark State College (Idaho), Wayne Graham of Rice University (Texas) and Frank Sancet of the University of Arizona will also be inducted as part of the College Baseball Night of Champions celebration on June 30 in Lubbock, Texas.
The first inductee from the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC), Jorgensen was the National Player of the Year in both 1994 and 1995. His career mark of 70 home runs is tied for the most in NCAA Division III history. Jorgensen’s 39 home runs in 1995 remains the all-time record, with the next-best total being 26.
“It’s an extreme honor that I can’t really put into words,” Jorgensen said. “When you look at the folks who are being inducted and the ones who are already there, it’s very humbling.”
