Pac-12 names Hinch to All-Century Team

Astros manager A.J. Hinch has been named to the Pac-12 All-Century Baseball Team.

The former Stanford catcher was one of three catchers named to the 30-man team by a 36-member panel. The team is made up of 20 position players and 10 pitchers, including former Astros and Southern California left-hander Randy Johnson.

Hinch was a three-time All-American and a two-time Conference Player of the Year during his time at Stanford from 1992-96, as well as a finalist for the 1996 Golden Spikes Award. Hinch was inducted into the Stanford Athletics Hall of Fame in October 2014.
