Plant High senior infielder Pete Alonso will be presented with the Wade Boggs Athletic Achievement Award by Boggs and the Hillsborough County Commission during their regular Board meeting Wednesday, May 15, at 9 a.m. at County Center, 2nd Floor Boardroom, 601 E. Kennedy Blvd. in downtown Tampa.
Gaither’s Oscar Mercado and King’s Brett Morales also will be recognized with honorable mention awards.
The Wade Boggs Athletic Achievement Award, named in honor of 12-time baseball All Star and former Tampa Bay Devil Rays Wade Boggs, was established by the Hillsborough County Commission in 2005 to recognize the outstanding athletic and scholastic achievements of a high school baseball player or team.
This season, Alonso, who has signed with the University of Florida, batted .387 with 29 hits, seven of which were home runs, 24 runs and 22 RBI. Plant lost to Durant in the district tournament.
Off the field, Alonso carries a 4.06 grade point average, is a member of the National Honor Society and performs community service at Metropolitan Ministries, youth baseball camps, and mentoring students on bullying, peer pressure and substance abuse.
