Jon Andresen is the latest member of the Golden Gopher baseball family to be inducted into the University of Minnesota "M" Club Hall of Fame. He was one of 10 former Gopher greats welcomed into the Hall of Fame on Thursday night in a ceremony at TCF Bank Stadium.
Few Golden Gopher baseball players had a career like Andresen. The second baseman, who was drafted by the Minnesota Twins, was named First Team All-American and First Team All-Big Ten in 1963 when he batted .370.
Andresen was also the team captain and led the Gophers during his All-American season with 34 RBIs in only 108 at bats. In addition to scoring 31 runs in 1963, he also paced the team in home runs (8), doubles (7), triples (3) and total bases (77).
Andresen is the 23rd former baseball student-athlete in the "M" Club Hall of Fame. Head coach John Anderson and his mentor, Dick Siebert, were inducted as coaches.
