Shemar Page pitched a perfect game April 22, 2022

Grambling State University graduate student Shemar Page has been selected as a semifinalist for the 2022 Dick Howser Trophy, presented by The Game Headware in conjunction with the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) and the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce. The Dick Howser Trophy is one of college baseball’s most prestigeous awards.

Shemar Page of Laurel, Mississippi, is one of the top utility players in the country currently hitting .327 with 29 runs scored, seven doubles, six triples, two home runs and 24 runs batted in. On the hill, Page has a 2.69 earned run average and is 7-4 on the season. In 13 appearances, he’s tossed four complete games in 87.0 innings pitched while striking out 124 batters.

Page was named on Black College Nines list of “Who’s Hot” and SWAC Player of the Week when he became just the 34th NCAA Division I pitcher in history to toss a perfect game in Grambling State’s 16-0 seven-inning victory over Alcorn State this past April 22. He currently leads the SWAC in strikeouts.

Balloting was done by the NCBWA in conjunction with the Dick Howser Trophy Committee and the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce.  The award, given to the top player in collegiate baseball, is based on two rounds of national voting.

This is the 35th year of the Dick Howser Trophy. The finalists will be announced on Thursday, June 9.
