Gerald Donald Kindall (born May 27, 1935 in St. Paul, Minnesota) is a retired professional baseball player who played second base in the major leagues from 1956 to 1965 for the Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins. Kindall was originally signed up by the Chicago Cubs as a bonus baby.[1] No one since 1920 with at least 2000 at-bats has a lower career batting average than Kindall's .213, but he did have above average power for a second baseman.[2]

A former baseball coach of the NCAA's Arizona Wildcats, Kindall is a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame and the author of Baseball: Play the Winning Way and co-editor of The Baseball Coaching Bible.[3] Jerry Kindall also led Arizona to three College World Series titles.[4] The University of Arizona's former baseball field, Jerry Kindall Field at Frank Sancet Stadium, is named in honor of Kindall and Frank Sancet.[5]
