WATERVILLE — There will be a memorial service for Colby College legend John Winkin on Sunday at noon at Colby’s Lorimer Chapel and a reception to follow at Page Commons.

For those unable to attend, Rob Munzing of Munzing Media will have a live stream of the service at: new.livestream.com/accounts/546422/events/3293529.

Winkin had over 300 wins with the Mules’ baseball program. He died in July at age 94.

Winkin was inducted into the 2013 Class of the College Baseball Hall of Fame.

Winkin was at Colby from 1955 to 1974 and also served as athletics director.

He had a 301-202-5 record in his time with the Mules and was the National Baseball Coach of the Year in 1965. Winkin, or ‘Wink” has so many of his good friends called him, had his Colby No. 5 uniform retired on March 12, 2011, and the uniform is displayed in the trophy room of the Harold Alfond Athletics Center.
