First baseman Dick Siebert played 11 seasons in the big leagues and was in the top ten in the league in batting average in 1941 and 1944.

Siebert received his B.A. degree from the University of Minnesota in 1934, then after his playing days was head coach at UM from 1948 to 1978, taking the school to three College World Series titles, in 1956, 1960, and 1964. He also was a basketball coach during his playing days at Concordia Junior College.
