Before he became the Home Run King
Long before he entered the MLB record books for most home runs hit in a season and career, Barry Bonds starred as an First-Team All-American honors in 1985 for the Sun Devils.
While playing for ASU, Bonds hit .347 with 45 home runs and 175 RBI's. In 1985, he was drafted by the Pirates in the first round of the draft.
While managing the Sun Devils baseball program from 1959-71, Winkles delivered three College World Series championships and was named the Sporting News Coach of the Year three times. His No. jersey is honored at Packard Stadium where the field is named in his honor.
A Sun Devil Before he became "Mr. October!"
For a college football player to be dubbed Mr. October, you might think that his best games were saved for homecoming. However, ASU's Mr. October was the one and only Reggie Jackson.
Jackson actually arrived in Tempe on a football scholarship before starring for the university's baseball team. Jackson earned a spot in ASU's Hall of Fame for his tremendous play in the 1960's and joined Cooperstown for his consistent home run prowess that intensified in World Series play.
