Lubbock, TX - Former Cal State Fullerton first baseman Tim Wallach is among 46 college baseball headliners included on the ballot released today for the inaugural induction into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in Lubbock, Texas.
A total of 22 former players, 12 coaches and 12 veteran candidates are eligible for recognition from an 80-member Hall of Fame Voting Committee, which will participate in two rounds of elimination votes to get to the final list. The Class of 2006 will be announced in late April and the induction will be part of a two-day celebration of collegiate baseball to be held July 3 and July 4 in Lubbock.
Wallach led the Titans to their first national championship in 1979. Among the many CSF records he established in his two seasons (1978 & 1979) is one that still stands -- 102 runs batted in during the 1979 season. He was drafted in the first round by Montreal in 1979 and went on to enjoy a 17-year major league career with the Expos, Dodgers and Angels.
