Another great dual-sport athlete at Idaho, Ken Schrom was a two-year letter winner in both football and baseball for the Vandals from 1973-76. A 17th-round selection by the California Angels in the 1976 MLB draft, Schrom pitched in the major leagues for seven years, earning an All-Star Game invitation in 1986 after starting the season with a 10-2 record. Schrom, a Grangeville, Idaho native, played for Toronto, Minnesota and Cleveland during his MLB career. Even after his playing career, Schrom never gave up on baseball. He spent 16 years as the top executive in the front office of the El Paso Diablos, a Double-A team that he had played for early in his career, and then moved on to the Corpus Christi Hooks, a Double-A affiliate of the Houston Astros. In 2005, he earned Texas League Executive of the Year honors when the Hooks finished with the third-highest attendance in Double-A and 17th-best among all minor league clubs in the country in just their inaugural season.
