Vallot wins Mr. Baseball honors in Louisiana

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Entering his final year of high school baseball, Chase Vallot's goals were quite simple and from the looks of what St. Thomas More was returning from the 2013 state runner-up team, very attainable.

Vallot merely wanted to cap his high school career by winning the Class 4A state championship and enjoy a better season than he did in any of the previous three campaigns.

Vallot achieved those goals and then some.

The Cougars rolled to the Class 4A state championship and Vallot played a key role batting .545 with 13 home runs, 15 doubles, one triple and 60 RBIs.

That stellar season has netted Vallot the Farm Bureau-Louisiana Sports Writers Association Mr. Baseball award given to the state's top player.
