2018 Scholarship Award winner Hayden Murphy

The GABHoF has instituted scholarships to be awarded to two high school senior baseball players. Currently, the scholarships are $500 each and are paid out to the college/university in which the player will be attending in the fall. The criteria that is used for the board to vote on falls into three categories: 1. Baseball statistics and achievements, 2. Grade Point Average and Academic achievements, and 3. Community involvement. The GABHoF board hopes to increase either the amount of the scholarships and/or the number of scholarships awarded. We know every little bit helps when trying to fund a college education. The board hopes it can continue this tradition.  If you would like to donate towards funding one of the scholarships, please visit our Donation portal.
