Jim Brock was the head coach of the Arizona State Sun Devils baseball team for 23 years from 1972 until his death in 1994. During his first year as head coach, Brock managed his team to a 64-6 record. That mark remains the NCAA record for all-time winning percentage in a single season. Jim Brocks record at ASU was 1,100-440, and he also led ASU to thirteen College World Series appearances. In 1994, Brock battled liver and colon cancer that would take his life one day after the conclusion of the College World Series. Though his strength was waning, Brock did not miss a conference game through the 94 season. He led his team through the regional tournament at Knoxville, Tennessee, and was in the dugout when the Sun Devils beat University of Miami, 4-0, in the opener of the College World Series. Speaking in little more than a whisper, he gave his team an inspirational pep talk after a scoreless first inning when he sensed that the Sun Devils were flat. You can make an assumption that youll be up because its the College World Series, Brock said, But you spend so much emotion in the final game of the regional that you sometimes have to find a way to regain that emotion. On his way to Rosenblatt Stadium, for the second game of the Series, Brocks condition worsened. The Sun Devils went on to lose to the University of Oklahoma, 4-3, in the home half of the eleventh inning. Brock was airlifted from Omaha to a Mesa hospital shortly before game number three. His Sun Devils went on to hit five home runs to eliminate top seeded Miami, 9-5, presenting him with his 1,100th coaching victory. Later, Oklahoma eliminated ASU from the series and went on to capture the national title. On June 12, 1994, three days after his teams season ended, Brock died of colon cancer. He was 57. Brock was posthumously voted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007.
