3 elected to Oklahoma State Baseball Hall of Fame

Three former Oklahoma State baseball players have been elected to OSU's Baseball Hall of Fame.

Danny Thompson, Billy Gasparino and Josh Fields are to be inducted during a banquet on Feb. 1.

Thompson played at OSU in 1967-68 and was an All-American. He later played professionally for Minnesota and Texas before his death at age 29 in 1976 after battling leukemia.

Gasparino played at OSU from 1997-99 and still holds the Big 12 record for career runs scored. He is now director of scouting for the San Diego Padres.

Fields was a two-sport star at OSU from 2002-04 and has spent five seasons in the major leagues. He played for the Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies in 2013.
