The "Jason Varitek Award"

Did not know there was such a thing - link here.

The Braves 400 Club always recognizes talent from the Braves minor leagues, along with a Georgia high school and college player. The Jason Varitek Award, given to most outstanding scholar athlete in Georgia, went to former Georgia Tech pitcher Andrew Kown. The 6’7” starting pitcher went 9-0 in his final 15 starts of the 2004 season. He helped lead the Jackets to the NCAA regionals. Kown was drafted by the Tigers in the fifth round last June. He will head to East Michigan in the Eastern League this season.
