The Wildcat Toast and Taste is a signature fundraising event dedicated to honoring those who have had significant influence to the Wildcat experience. This affair is hosted by the East Valley Alumni Chapter and Phoenix Young Alumni Club of the University of Arizona Alumni Association. Proceeds benefit chapter scholarship funds.
The 2017 event will honor former UA Baseball head coach Jerry Kindall. In 1976, 1980, and 1986, Coach Kindall led the Wildcats to NCAA baseball title and, in 2007, he was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame. The event will also feature special guests Chip Hale*, former Major League Baseball second baseman and third baseman, and current third base coach for the Oakland Athletics and Jay Johnson*, the current coach of the University of Arizona baseball team.
