Roger Clemens Award
Roger Clemens Award
Roger Clemens pitching for the Houston Astros in 2004.

The Roger Clemens Award honors the top NCAA Division I college baseball pitcher of the year. The award was created prior to the 2004 season and succeeds the Rotary Smith Award.

"Roger Clemens has become synonymous with excellence in pitching at the professional level, as evidenced by his six Cy Young Awards. In addition to being a fabulous baseball player at every level in which he has participated, his passion for excellence is unsurpassed. He is mindful of giving back to a sport and a community he loves. With his college and professional resume, his name is most worthy and deserving in recognition of the most outstanding college pitcher. The Roger Clemens Award most certainly will become the college equivalent of the Cy Young, therefore becoming one of the most coveted in college baseball." CBPY Board Member Ray Mitchell (February 14, 2004)

Roger Clemens was an extremely successful college player at the University of Texas before starting his professional career.

The winner is determined by a vote of all Division I Head Coaches, selected members of the media, all past winners of the Roger Clemens Award, as well as all past winners of the Rotary Smith Award.
