BSB: Brady Singer named finalist for Golden Spikes and Dick Howser Awards

Florida RHP Brady Singer has racked up a number of awards after a stellar junior season. On Wednesday and Thursday, Singer was announced as a finalist for two of the top honors in collegiate baseball.

Singer was named one of four finalists for the Golden Spikes Award on Wednesday. The honor is awarded to the top amateur baseball player in the United States annually. The award will be announced on June 28.

Singer is the fifth Florida player to be selected as a finalist, and could be the second to win the honor. Mike Zunino won the award in 2012.

On Thursday, Singer was also announced as one of the five finalists for the Dick Howser Trophy. The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association will announce a winner on June 16 at a press conference from the College World Series.

Singer was selected eighteenth overall in the 2018 MLB Draft by Kansas City earlier this week.

Singer has been named the SEC Player of the Year, the Baseball America National Player of the Year, and a first team All-American. Singer has posted a 11-1 record to go along with a 2.27 ERA. In 95 innings of work, Singer has retired 98 batters via strikeout and has limited opponents to a .188 batting average.
