The Ole Miss Rebels came up one win short of advancing to the College World Series, but it was still a great season.
One of the biggest reasons the team had so much success this year was star SS Grae Kessinger, who had a great 2019 campaign.
On Tuesday, it was announced that Kessinger had won the Brooks Wallace Award, which is given annually to the best shortstop in college baseball:
“I am proud to have Grae represent our family as this year’s Brooks Wallace Award winner,” said Larry Wallace, award co-chairman and brother of Brooks. “He portrays all the qualities we look for in honoring Brooks’ legacy.”
Kessinger hit .330 with 18 doubles, seven home runs and 50 RBI this season and also played stellar defense at shortstop. He was selected by the Houston Astros in the second round of the 2019 MLB Draft.
