LOUISVILLE SLUGGER® ANNOUNCES 2010 STATE HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS OF THE YEAR

LOUISVILLE, KY (July 19, 2010) – Louisville Slugger® and the National High School Baseball Coaches Association (BCA) are pleased to announce the 2010 Louisville Slugger State High School Baseball Players of the Year Awards.  A player of the year was selected in 47 participating states and Washington, DC by coaches who are members of the BCA.

“Once again, we are proud to join Louisville Slugger in honoring these fine young baseball players from all across the United States,” said BCA Executive Director Ron Davini.  “These players have been selected by coaches in their jurisdictions as the best player in their respective states.  We’re certain we’ll be hearing more about these players in years to come, at both the collegiate and professional levels as their careers develop.”

Louisville Slugger initiated the State High School Player of the Year Awards in 2004 as part of its 120th anniversary.  The legendary company is proud of its rich heritage and tradition in baseball.  Louisville Slugger bats, first made in 1884, have been linked to so many of the greatest moments in baseball history.  This year the company is celebrating its 126th year!

“Louisville Slugger is the official bat of Major League Baseball and in addition to all of our history, we have the majority of MLB players using our bats today,” said Louisville Slugger President Marty Archer.  “These State High School Player of the Year Awards are a way to honor today’s high school stars for their outstanding accomplishments as they work to try to
become the Major League stars of the future.”

Recipients of the Louisville Slugger State High School Player of the Year Awards will receive specially engraved black and silver Louisville Slugger bats noting their achievement.  Their respective schools will receive a replica for the school trophy case.
