Georgia 3B/OF Charlie Condon wins Dick Howser Trophy

All-American Charlie Condon of Georgia won the 2024 Dick Howser Trophy for the nation’s best Division I baseball player on Thursday.

The third baseman and outfielder will receive the trophy during a news conference Friday in Omaha, Neb. He beat out four other finalists: Oregon State second baseman Travis Bazzana, Wake Forest pitcher Chase Burns, Florida first baseman/pitcher Jac Caglianone and Arkansas pitcher Hagen Smith.

Condon currently leads the NCAA in batting average (.443) and home runs (37) among other statistical categories. While Georgia’s season is over, Condon is on track to become just the third player to lead the country in both average and home runs in the same season.

“This is a very prestigious award, and it’s been fun being around the people associated with the Dick Howser Trophy and the Howser family,” Condon said in a news release. “It meant a lot to be up for the award and now also to win it. I’ve said before it’s an individual recognition, but it comes from a big support staff including family, teammates and coaches from Georgia and a loving group in Athens. I’m honored to bring the award back to represent the University of Georgia.”

Condon also leads the country this season in slugging percentage (1.009), total bases (233) and OPS (1.565). He hit a home run in eight consecutive contests from April 26-May 9, and he was intentionally walked a whopping 28 times.

The College World Series begins Friday in Omaha with North Carolina facing Virginia and top-seeded Tennessee meeting Florida State. The other four teams still alive are Kentucky, NC State, Texas A&M and Florida.
