Career highlights and awards

Gerald Donald Kindall (born May 27, 1935 in St. Paul, Minnesota), is a retired professional baseball player who played second base in the major leagues from 1956-1965 for the Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins. Kindall was originally signed up by the Chicago Cubs as a bonus baby. No one since 1920 with at least 2000 at-bats has a lower career batting average than Kindall's .213, but he did have above average power for a second baseman.

A long time baseball coach for the University of Arizona, Kindall is a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame and the author of Baseball: Play the Winning Way and co-editor of The Baseball Coaching Bible. Jerry Kindall also led Arizona to three College World Series titles. The University of Arizona's baseball field, Jerry Kindall Field at Frank Sancet Stadium, is named in his and Sancet's honor.
