1986 BYU Hall of Fame

Former center fielder for BYU's "Diamondcats," baseball great Lee Iorg now joins his older brother, Dane, another member of the Athletic Hall of Fame.

Baseball was practically a way of life for Iorg, who spent over 20 years in the sport, from little league to the National League with the New York Mets.

Voted All-Region in high school in football, basketball and baseball, Iorg came to BYU in 1971 and was subsequently named to the District 7 All-Star team in 1972, 1973, 1974. Co-captain of the BYU team, the ace center fielder was named All-WAC in 1972, 1973 and 1974, and All-American in 1974.

Iorg had a unique career at BYU because he started all four of his years on the baseball team. He also set or tied 13 individual career records by the time he graduated, as well as tying a WAC record with three home runs in a single game.

In November, 1972, Iorg played on the U.S. Amateur Baseball Team, sponsored by the U.S. Baseball Federation, in the World Olympic Baseball Tournament in Nicaragua. There, the U.S. team came in second, losing to Cuba on a 10th inning home run.

Between his sophomore and junior years at BYU, Iorg played for the Alaska Goldpanners, leading the team to victory at the National Semi-Pro Championships in 1973, where he had a .500 average and was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.

Glen Tuckett, former Cougar baseball coach, once said of Iorg, "He's a very coachable individual. He helps the whole team, not only with his playing, but with his attitude."
