The Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award presented by SR Bats made its debut during the 2017 college baseball season. Hunter Hargrove of Texas Tech University was the first winner. The award takes into account performance at the plate, academics and personal integrity and will be open to nominations from Division I baseball programs in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana.
For over 25 years the Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation has had two elements at its core, a passion for baseball and providing kids with the incentive and opportunity to pursue a college education. From Bobby Bragan’s 60-year involvement with professional baseball to the foundation’s signature scholarship program, the Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation has embraced these connections and sought to make an impact on the DFW Metroplex.
The Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award is the combination of these two areas that will drive the foundation for the future.
The Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award is based on the time tested and proven tenets of the foundation’s scholarship program that takes into account not only athletic performance, but academics and integrity as well.
