The Greater Charlotte Hot Stove League proudly presents the finalists for awards at the 9th Annual banquet to be held February 6th. This annual baseball and softball recognition event is held to honor top Student-athletes in the community.  All finalists have successfully completed the nomination and selection requirements to be eligible as a finalists.   These awards are based on many factors; including. character, scholarship, athletic accomplishments, coaches references and leadership skills.  Many outstanding baseball and softball  players in the area may not be included here if they did not fit enough of the requirements, failed to respond on time to a finalist notification  or did not receive nominations from their high school coaches.

The Greater Charlotte Hot Stove League Awards provide a recognition opportunity for Student-athletes across the region and I am very proud to present these kids that have come through the nomination and selection process with the event.


Past winners of awards at the Greater Charlotte Hot Stove League Awards include major league players Corey Seager and Richie Shaffer along with top baseball prospects Brett Austin, Trent Thornton, Max Wotell and many others.  Outstanding college softball players that were honored include Kalie Lang, Constance Orr, Leah Murray, Sarah Mooney and Jen Rosene.


We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday February 6th at 6:00pm.  A very limited amount of tickets remain on sale as of January 29th at www.hotstovedinner.com
