The 1973 College World Series came down to perennial powers Arizona State and Southern California in the final game for the NCAA championship of baseball. But it was a tall, gangly pitcher for the Minnesota Golden Gophers who stole the show that year.
Dave Winfield tossed 17⅓ innings in his two starts while allowing just one earned run and striking out 29. In addition, he batted .467 in the Series. It was a dominating performance in every sense of the word, and Winfield was named Most Valuable Player of the ’73 CWS.
