Less than two weeks after winning his 200th game, Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson made a generous donation to his alma mater, Auburn University, giving $1 million to the Tigers baseball program.
Hudson, who played for the Tigers in 1996-1997, was named the 1997 Rotary Smith Award Winner as the top player in college baseball. He went 15-2 with a 2.97 ERA that season, leading the nation in wins on the way to being named the SEC Player of the Year. Hudson’s donation will go towards upgrading Samford Stadium-Hitchcock Field and is expected to help promote recruiting. Other players to come through the Auburn program include Bo Jackson, Gregg Olson and Frank Thomas.
Here's Hudson's scouting report from his Auburn days.
