Marietta, GA --
6-4-3 DP Baseball celebrated its 2016-2017 season on August 20, 2017 with its annual awards banquet. The banquet was held at the Hilton Marietta Hotel & Conference Center in Marietta, Georgia. Birmingham-Southern College's head baseball coach, Jan Weisberg, was the featured speaker. The banquet was a wonderful event that celebrated the accomplishments of the 2017 6-4-3 academy teams and players.
A host of individual and team awards were awarded at the 2017 banquet. One of the night's highlights was the renaming of the 6-4-3 Courage Award to the Carson Rozsman Courage Award to honor and remember the life of Carson Rozsman who bravely fought brain cancer. The Carson Rozsman Courage Award is a special honor given to an individual that demonstrates great strength in the face of adversity. This award will be granted based on merit and not necessarily every year.
The 2017 (and first) Carson Rozsman Courage Award was proudly awarded to Chase Otten, member of the 16U Tigers, for his grit, determination, sacrifice, tenacity and courage. Since the occurrence of an unfortunate leg injury (with complications) on the football field in 2015, Chase has endured nine (9) surgeries and countless hours of physical therapy to return to the baseball field. 6-4-3 is proud to have a special, strong, young man such as Chase in our program.
