— Former Kansas University baseball coach Dave Bingham and Lawrence High product Lee Stevens have been elected to the Kansas Baseball Hall of Fame.

Bingham and Stevens, along with former Wichita State pitcher Darren Dreifort, former college umpire Bob Homolka, former major leaguer Joseph Vaughan and 14 Negro League players will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame on Feb. 4.

The ceremony will take place at the Hillside Christian Church, at 8330 East Douglas.

Bingham coached at KU from 1988 to 1995 and led the Jayhawks to the first NCAA Tournament and College World Series appearances in school history in 1993. His 1993 team shattered a host of program records, including the school record for wins in a season with 45. He posted a 249-225 record in eight seasons at KU, reaching the NCAA Tournament in 1993 and 1994.

Stevens was a first-round pick in the 1986 amateur baseball draft and played from 1990 to 1992 and from 1996 to 2002 for the Angels, Rangers, Expos and Indians.
