Congratulations to GS on Cy Young award!

glenda_alMay 16, 2013

Mighty proud of my fella!

It was a coaches and team vote!

He'll be a senior next year.

The Cy Young Award was first introduced in 1956 by Commissioner of Baseball Ford Frick in honor of Hall of Fame pitcher Cy Young, who died in 1955.

The award would be given to pitchers only.

It was given out at the end of the year awards program assembly.

Was a surprise to him, as he's a junior with the other senior pitchers. He's been on varsity after first game when he was a freshman and moved right up to varsity.

His parents and I are mighty proud of him.

Congratulations to Parke Jr.!!! He's the "Pride of the KT", as we have all watched him grow into a super young man. I know how proud you are of him--and rightfully so.

Congratulations to Parke for receiving such an honor. My goodness, the difference in the two pictures is amazing. Shows what hard work and talent can do.

We'll both have senior grandsons next year, Glenda. Where does the time go? I don't post much about him--his parents would rather I didn't.

To win one you have to be sooo good at what you do and that takes practice and drive. He's going to go places, what a wonderful grandson and he should be so proud of himself.

An award indicating not just the success of Parker, Jr. but the dedicated TLC he's received throughout his maturation process. An earned accommodation for one and all! Congratulations! A job well done!

That parental support shows, Glenda...but...I'm just as sure that you've had a loving hand in this process, as well...with both boys.

You've done well! My congratulations stands.

that is excellent and really could be a huge help in getting a good scholarship! My friends son was just like that from childhood on he was on the field every chance he got and did great in school, he and his best friend were always the top 2 and both got great scholarships and both are now playing professional and very successful. Hope Parke has as much success!

Dang, that will get him in most colleges instantly! Usually that award is given to a major league player, so getting one while in High school is amazing!
I'd be doubly proud, Glenda. wow!

This morning,I was helping my friend get ready for a graduation party, that's tomorrow. We were talking about her oldest who is a pitcher in College, where he put in amazing amounts of hours, training , riding buses to games and playing of course. He is so close to being a straight A student in pre med, but its tough to get through organic chemistry and play ball too. Getting a sports scholarship and keeping it takes alot of dedication.
I'm sure if Parke jr wants it bad enough, he'll do what he needs to.
Such a cute kid too! Can't believe he's almost a senior. ~I have one too, only she's into cross country. Just got her Academic all state at honors night last week . We were surprised too. Our seniors are done so she is officially a senior now. yea!

I'm sure this Cy Young pitcher award is local and within his school. I think.

Way I was told is he was voted on by his coaches and teammates, and award given at their awards assembly.

Any which way, we're proud of him!

He's a fine fine person in mind and spirit.

Glenda, the other Cy Young award is just a few years away, I suspect!

Bravo! We at the KT are also awarding honors to Grandma Glenda! His achievement takes more than just 'talent' and hard work. It takes having people who love you and believe in you. Who wouldn't want a Glenda in their corner?
