Smyrna-Clayton: Past Award Winners

Stevie Turner Memorial Award



The Major League, Stevie Turner Memorial Award, was established to recognize those characteristics that were evident in Stevie as he played the game of baseball.  It was important to Steven's family that his award not be presented based on athletic accomplishment but rather to recognize outstanding effort, teamwork, attitude and triumph in overcoming life's obstacles.

Sammy Everage Memorial Award

Sammy started playing baseball in SCLL in May of 1982 at the age of six.  Playing T-ball, Pee Wee, Minors, Majors and finally Seniors.  He did not get to play his final year in the Senior League since Sammy died as a result of a motorcycle accident.  Baseball was Sammy's love, he could not wait for the season to begin.  He loved coming to the fields for each of his games.  Sammy's parents would like to recognize a 16 year old player that was not always the best, but they loved the game as much as Sammy did.
