Game 53 | September 6, 1956 | Dick Siebert
An 11-year big league first baseman, Siebert coached the University of Minnesota baseball team for 31 years and led his team to National Champion-ships in 1956, 1960 and 1964. A native of Fall River, Massachusetts (home of Lizzie Borden), Siebert died in 1978 at age 66.

Game 173 | May 28, 1969 | Dick Siebert, Noel Jenke
Siebert, three times the coach of national baseball championship teams at Minnesota, would go on to coach Gopher baseball for another nine years. His guest, Jenke, was a three-sport letterman (football, baseball and hockey) from Owatonna, Minnesota. Often mentioned with Paul Giel, Ken Yackel and Dave Winfield as one of the best athletes in Gopher history, Jenke was a first-round pick of the Boston Red Sox in the 1969 draft. He made his debut later that year as an outfielder at Triple AAA Louisville. After two years in the Red Sox minor league organization, he switched to football and played the next four years at linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons.
