D'Alessio a Dick Howser Trophy Semi-Finalist

Junior first-baseman Andy D'Alessio (Naples, FL) was named one of 16 semi-finalists for the 2006 Dick Howser Trophy on May 18. The award goes to the nation's top college baseball player. In 53 games this season, he is hitting .327 with 18 home runs and 68 RBIs, and has committed just one error in the field. He joins fellow ACC players Andrew Miller (North Carolina) and Shane Robinson (Florida State) on the semi-final list.

Criteria for consideration for the trophy include performance on the field, moral character, and courage, qualities that were exemplified by Dick Howser's life. Howser was a player and coach at Florida State before becoming a manager in the Major Leagues with the Kansas City Royals. He died in 1987 of brain cancer.
