Chris Singleton (1992-93/Football & Baseball)

Chris Singleton, from Pinole, Calif., was a three-year starter at wide receiver for the Wolf Pack in football and was a two-year starter in the outfield. Teaming with fellow Wolf Pack Hall of Fame member Bryan Reeves and Ross Ortega, Singleton was part of a fleet-footed Wolf Pack receiving corps that led Nevada to the I-AA National Championship game in 1990, a No. 1 national raking for most of the 1991 season and a Las Vegas bowl berth in 1992. In two seasons on the diamond, the left-handed throwing and batting Singleton compiled a career batting average of more than .300, leading Nevada to an undefeated 27-0 home season in 1992. A second-round draft pick of the San Francisco Giants in 1993, Singleton broke into the Major Leagues in 1999, hitting .300 with 17 home runs and 72 RBI for the Chicago White Sox. He finished sixth in American League Rookie of the Year balloting that season. Singleton went on to play six seasons in the Majors (1999-2005), appearing fro the White Sox, Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Devil Rays. He is currently the color commentator for the White Sox Radio Network.
