Jack Todhunter

Jack Todhunter closed his career with the Valparaiso baseball program as one of the top hitters in program history.

Todhunter peaked as a senior with the Crusaders, as he was honored as a First Team All-American in 1963. He also received First Team All-Indiana Collegiate Conference recognition as he helped lead Valpo to the NCAA University Division Playoffs in 1963, earning All-Tournament accolades. 

Todhunter finished his career sixth in Crusader history with a .364 career batting average, leading Valpo in average in each of his three seasons. He was named a Second Team All-Conference honoree as a freshman, hitting a personal-best .391 for the 1960 season. He also paced the Crusaders in runs scored in both 1961 and 1963, posting a 31-game hitting streak spanning the two seasons. 

Following graduation, Todhunter signed a contract with the Minnesota Twins, hitting .444 with the Appalachian League's Wythville Twins in 1963. He then was invited to spring training with the Chicago White Sox in 1964, hitting .400 before suffering an injury which ended his career. 

Todhunter, a 1963 graduate of Valparaiso University who also was a member of the Crusader bowling team during his time at Valpo, is a retired banker.
