Last Friday, the UMHB baseball team ended its season, reaching the ASC Tournament for the first time since 2017 in head coach Mike Stawski’s first full season.

The Crusaders showed plenty of fight as they posted a 22-17 record, winning eight of their last nine regular season games.

With that said, it is now time to select True To The Cru’s 2021 Baseball Players of the Year. First, we would like to recognize all the players on this year’s team who represented UMHB. They each sacrificed plenty, worked hard and contributed to the team’s success.

Second, our Players of the Year voting is simply an opportunity to recognize a group of players who performed especially well on the diamond and led the Cru this past season.

The winners will be selected by the fans, and our polls are open until Sunday, May 16 at 5:00 p.m. CT. Please retweet, repost, vote and share in order to give these athletes the recognition they deserve.
