Alumni Notebook: Former Miner earns top honors at Tabor College

The Union Staff

Chris Brown, a senior baseball player, was named Most Valuable Male Athlete at Tabor College for 2007-08.

Brown, a 2003 Nevada Union graduate and a catcher for Tabor, led the Bluejays (18-31) in batting this season, hitting .338 with seven home runs and 41 RBIs. He was the team’s MVP and a unanimous selection at catcher for the KCAC All-Conference and NAIA All-Region IV teams. In addition, he was an academic all-conference honoree.

Brown transferred to Tabor College from Solano Community College, where he hit .350 with three home runs and 26 RBIs and was named all-conference second team and won the team’s Golden Glove Award.

“I am happy for Chris,” said Bluejays coach Chad Newhard. “He deserves all of the honors that come his way. Not only was he a tremendous asset to our team behind the plate but he also provided quality leadership for this team and is also a man of high character.”

Brown graduates this year with a degree in sociology with a concentration in psychology and social work.

He’s accepted a position at the Salina, Kan., police department.
