The CLASS Award is given to a college baseball senior who excels both on and off the field in four specific areas- community, classroom, character, and competition. “CLASS” is an acronym for “Celebrating Loyalty and Achivement for Staying in School.”
The award winner is announced in June during the College World Series.
Three former Valley Leaguers have made the long list:
- Austin Embler, UNC Greensboro (Harrisonburg 2017-18)
- Justin Hayes, Norfolk State (Strasburg 2018)
- Brady Lloyd, East Carolina (New Market 2016)
Hopefully one of these young men will take home the award!
