LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Former Wichita State coach Gene Stephenson, whose 1,837 wins rank him third in college baseball history, was one of seven selected for induction into the National College Baseball Hall of Fame.

Stephenson, whose brother Phil was inducted in 2007, won a national title in 1989 and built Wichita State’s program into a perennial NCAA tournament contender in his 36 seasons.

Former major league pitcher Alex Fernandez, a star at Miami and Miami-Dade South Community College, was also announced Tuesday as a member of this year’s class.

Also selected were former USC pitcher Bill Bordley, former Miami outfielder Mike Fiore, former Miami-Dade North Community College coach Demie Mainieri, former Tuskegee Institute and Harvard shortstop William C. Matthews, and former Baylor outfielder and coach Mickey Sullivan.
