WebsiteDick Howser Trophy

The Dick Howser Trophy is bestowed annually to the national college baseball player of the year.[1] The award is named after former collegiate and Major League Baseball (MLB) player and manager Dick Howser, who died of brain cancer in 1987 at the age of 51.[1] In that same year, the award was established by friends of Howser[2] and presented to Mike Fiore, the inaugural winner.[3][4][5][6]

Six winners of the Dick Howser Trophy are members of the National College Baseball Hall of Fame.[7] Four winners--Kris Benson, David Price, Stephen Strasburg, and Adley Rutschman--went on to become the first overall MLB draft pick.[8]Jason Jennings, Buster Posey, and Kris Bryant went on to win the Rookie of the Year Award several years after winning the Dick Howser Trophy.[9]Jered Weaver is the only award winner to pitch a no-hitter,[10] while Mark Teixeira holds the record for most games with home runs from both sides of the plate.[11] Furthermore, seventeen players won the Golden Spikes Award alongside the Dick Howser Trophy.[12]Brooks Kieschnick is the only player to win the trophy more than once.[13]

The winners from 1987 to 1998 were selected by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA).[14] The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) became the voting body in 1999, and now presents the award together with the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce in Florida.[4] The most recent recipient of the award is Adley Rutschman of Oregon State University.[15]
