Baylor Baseball’s Austin Stone Honored by Shriners Hospitals for Children

WACO, Texas – Baylor baseball senior right-handed pitcher Austin Stone earned the Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic Service Award, the organization announced Saturday.

The honor recognizes outstanding community service as Stone has been a willing and active volunteer for Shriners.  Over his career at Baylor, Stone has helped with Little League Challenger Division teams across Texas at Baylor Ballpark each year, goes to Houston’s Shriners Hospitals for Children annually to visit with patients and families and has established special relationships with several Waco area children and families.

“Austin’s dedication to the Central Texas community and his service minded attitude reflect the values of the Shriners International fraternity and our philanthropy,” said Jerry Gantt, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Shriners Hospitals for Children. “We are proud to see student-athletes like Austin actively support our organization and join us in our efforts to make a difference in the lives of children from around the world.”
