"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)
Given the retirement of RogerClemens, it only seemed natural that an award in his name, selecting the finest college pitcher in the country, was a perfect fit.
The RogerClemensAward was named after future Hall of Famer RogerClemens, who began his march to stardom while leading the University of Texas to the College World Series title in 1983.
The Rotary Smith Award paid tribute to the college baseball player of the year and we invite you to examine all the recipients — who are able to vote for the RogerClemensAwards winner — here on Baseball Almanac.
