Dunn Selected for Rawlings “Big Stick” Award
Grafton, WI- Every movie award season, there is always one film that runs away with all the awards. In the world of summer collegiate baseball, that movie is the Jack Dunn show. During the summer and now into the off-season, Dunn has claimed award after award. Adding to that list is the Rawlings “Big Stick” award. The “Big Stick” award is given to the player at each position who had the best batting average during the 2018 regular season. Dunn was the representative for shortstops. Jack joins Matthew Mika (2017) and Eric Aguilera (2012) as the only Chinooks players to receive the award.
Jack Dunn was named Northwoods League All-Star Game MVP and participated in the Major League Dreams Showcase. Shortly after the season, he was also announced as a Northwoods League Post-Season All-Star. The 2017 Robin Yount Award winner returned to Lakeshore this past summer for his second season with the club. He would lead the team in hitting with an average of .316. He lead the Nooks in Runs (35) and was second in Hits (54). Dunn now gears up for his final season at Northwestern.
