Championship Thinking in Sports – Would you qualify for College Baseball’s Heisman, The Dick Howser Trophy?

Guest Jana Howser*, National College Baseball Hall of Fame, Executive Vice President-Development gives insight only a daughter could about her father, Dick Howser**. As she does, you’ll learn why college baseball’s most prestigious award (baseball’s Heisman) bears his name. As you listen and learn, I challenge you to ask this question; Would you qualify for College Baseball’s Heisman, The Dick Howser Trophy? With love, energy, dedication and commitment, Jana walks us through the four criteria for the award, performance on the field, leadership, moral character and courage. You’ll hear stories about Dick’s friendship with George Brett, Frank White and others, his wit, the ability to balance life and decisions, remaining focused on others, and his tireless love of the game.
