SPRINKLE WINS ANDRE DAWSON AWARD

Matthew Sprinkle has been chosen by the Miami Marlins as winner of the seventh annual Andre Dawson Scholarship Award. The Dawson Scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior on the Southwest High School varsity baseball team, the same team where Dawson got his start in baseball. Funded by the Marlins Foundation, the scholarship is awarded to a student-athlete that will not be receiving an athletic scholarship but possesses a desire to continue his education. Sprinkle, who received the $5000 scholarship at the Marlins May 12 home game, edged out teammate Skippy Hernandez for the honor.
