Sean Hagen A Semifinalist For Johnny Bench Award

Posted on 20 May 2014 by admin

RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky University senior Sean Hagen is one of 15 finalists for the 2014 Johnny Bench Award, the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission announced recently. The award is given annually to the top NCAA Division I catcher.

The initial watch list was released in March with 72 catchers from across the nation. He is the only player from the Ohio Valley Conference, and the only player from a team in Kentucky, to be chosen as a semifinalist.

The Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission started the Johnny Bench Award in 2000. The criteria for the award include athletic ability, sportsmanship, team leadership and character.

Ballots will be sent to the national voting panel to determine the three finalists. The finalists will be announced June 3. A final vote by the national committee will occur during the College World Series with the winner announced on June 26.

Hagen hit .313 with nine home runs, 36 RBIs, 37 runs scored and 17 stolen bases. The Reading, Pa., native also had 29 walks and eight doubles. He had a .516 slugging percentage and a .432 on-base percentage.

Hagen ranks third in the OVC in stolen bases and is tied for 10th in home runs.

The senior had three or more hits in a game six times this year. On May 4, Hagen went 4-for-5 with a run scored and two RBIs against Eastern Illinois.

While Johnny Bench is remembered for his offense, he may have had the greatest impact behind the plate. He was the first receiver to use a protective helmet in the field, popularized catching one-handed and kept his throwing hand behind his back to protect it from foul tips.
