The most successful major league player to come out of the University of South Florida (through 2007), infielder Tim Hulett was signed as a 1st round pick (secondary phase) in the January 1980 amateur draft by the Chicago White Sox and scout Walter Widmayer. He played 12 seasons in the major leagues, mostly with the White Sox and the Baltimore Orioles. He was a starter at third base for the Sox in 1985 and 1986, clubbing 17 homers in the latter season. A good clutch hitter, he batted .417 with runners in scoring position with the O's in 1992 and was a starter at third for a time the next season when Leo Gomez went on the disabled list.
Following his playing career, Hulett became the head coach of the Evangel Christian Academy, in Shreveport, LA. He led the Evangel Christian Academy Eagles to the 2006 Louisiana 1A State Championship. In April 2007, he was announced as the manager of the Spokane Indians of the Northwest League.
During the 1992 season, Hulett's six year old son Sam was hit by a car and killed. Hulett has three other sons, one of whom, Tim "Tug" Hulett Jr., made his Major League debut in 2008. Another son, Jeff Hulett, was drafted in 2008. A third son, Joe Hulett, played in 2007.
