Akron Racers' Perryman Earns BBWAA Award

Akron Racer and former UMSL pitcher Hannah Perryman was presented with an award at the 55th Annual Baseball Writers Association of America St. Louis Chapter Dinner.

Perryman was presented with the John E. Wray-Myron Holtzman Award, given for achievement in sport other than professional baseball.

In her final season at Division II Missouri-St. Louis in 2016, Perryman ended her career with four Division II career records, including strikeouts with 1,725 and perfect games (nine). She earned all-region honors in all four seasons of her career and was three times named the Great Lake Valley Conference Pitcher of the Year.

She was named a first-team all-American for the second year in a row and set the Division II single-season record for strikeouts with 567 in her senior campaign.

Perryman was the first-ever player from Division II drafted to the National Pro Fastpitch league, having been selected by the Akron Racers with the 37th overall pick in the sixth round of the 2016 draft.
