Henry Picks Up Troy's First Gold Glove Award

Troy University senior third baseman Brett Henry was one of just nine players in Division I Baseball to be honored as a Gold Glove Award Winner by Rawlings and the American Baseball Coaches Association.

The award, which is in its third year, goes to the player recognized by coaches across the country as the best defensive player at his position in the nation.

"This is something that Brett is certainly very deserving of," Trojans head coach Bobby Pierce said. "He had that kind of year, based on his play at third base. He played the position this year as well as any player I have ever had in my coaching career. I am very happy for Brett."

Henry, who has already received his undergraduate degree in accounting and is working toward an MBA, posted a .976 fielding percentage while leading the Trojans with 128 assists. He was charged with just four errors in 166 defensive chances and was on the front end of nine double plays.

His efforts helped Troy to rank 47th among the 288 Division I teams in fielding percentage this year. The Trojans posted a .970 fielding percentage this year.

Henry was stunned by the news of the award.

"I am speechless, I truly am," Henry said. "What a great way to cap off my career here at Troy."

In addition to his play at third base, Henry finished his senior season with a .313 batting average, seven home runs and 42 runs batted in. In his four-year career at Troy the Mobile native posted a .303 batting average in 157 games played and had a .952 career fielding percentage.

Rawlings has been the longtime sponsor of the ABCA/Rawlings All-Region and All-American teams. The ABCA All-American Committees select the Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners in their respective divisions. Every college and high school coach in the country has the opportunity to participate through his respective regional chair.

Nine players from each division (NCAA I, II and III, NAIA, and Junior College I, II and III) are announced at the respective site of each division's national championship. The high school division awards are announced in Omaha during the Division I College World Series. Each winner receives the Rawlings Gold Glove Award similar to the MLB award. Each recipient's school also receives the award for permanent display.
