Whisler Named to Clemens Award Watch List

March 4, 2004

Junior left-handed pitcher Wes Whisler (Noblesville, IN/Noblesville HS) was named to the Roger Clemens Award Watch List. The award, which is in its first year of existence, will be given to the nation's top pitcher.

Whisler, who is 1-0 on the season with 11 strikeouts was a second-team All America selection by Baseball America prior to the 2004 season. He is also a two-time All-Pac 10 First Team selection and the 2002 Pac-10 Freshman of the Year.

The list is comprised of all Division I pitchers who were named as pre-season All-Americans by either Baseball America or Collegiate Baseball, in addition to those pitchers who have been honored so far this season as National Pitchers of the Week by the National College Baseball Writers Association. Weekly winners of the writer's award will be added to the list until the close of the first round of voting at the end of April. Additional nominees will be added to the ballot based on notable performances and rankings in the NCAA statistical rankings.

In its inaugural year, The Roger Clemens Award will be presented to the nation's top college pitcher at the conclusion of a gala dinner in Houston on July 15. All Division I head baseball coaches will take part in the voting for the honor, in addition to a selected panel of national media and all past winners of the Rotary Smith Award, which was retired after the 2003 dinner by the committee that is sponsoring the Clemens Award.

The award was named after future Hall of Famer Roger Clemens, who began his march to stardom while leading the University of Texas to the College World Series title in 1983. As a professional, Clemens has won over 300 games, fanned over 4,000 hitters and won and six Cy Young Awards, emblematic as the top pitcher in his league. The Roger Clemens Award is the only award of its kind, honoring the finest pitchers in college baseball.
