Three finalists for Ferriss Trophy named

JACKSON — Two pitchers and a hard-hitting infielder are the three finalists for the award given to the top college baseball player in Mississippi.

Pitchers Todd McInnis of Southern Miss and Drew Pomeranz of Mississippi and first baseman Connor Powers are finalists for the award to be presented during the May 24 ceremony at Delta State University in Cleveland.

The award, sponsored by Cellular South, is named for former Boston Red Sox great Boo Ferriss, who is expected to attend.

Finalists and the winner are chosen by a panel of major league scouts, college coaches and a media member.
