Exhibit of Top Collegiate Award Gives New England Sports Fans Another Reason to Cheer
Boston, MA -
The Hobey Baker Memorial Award, presented each year to the nation's top collegiate hockey player, is now on display at The Sports Museum, located on Levels 5 and 6 of the TD Garden, through the support of Warrior Hockey.
The famous trophy is named after Hobey Baker, America's top amateur athlete in the early 1900s who excelled in hockey and football at St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire and then Princeton University. There are actually three original Hobey Baker trophies, one of which is now the centerpiece of a new exhibit at The Sports Museum.
"We are glad that Hobey Baker has arrived in Boston," said Les Larson, Executive Director of the Hobey Baker Memorial Award Foundation. "New England is such a great area for college hockey. We know that the fans there will appreciate the award and all that it represents."
The Sports Museum's Hobey Baker exhibit presented by Warrior Hockey, also pays tribute to the ten players from New England colleges and universities who have won the award, including David Emma and Mike Mottau of Boston College; Chris Drury and Matt Gilroy of Boston University; Mark Fusco, Scott Fusco, and Lane MacDonald of Harvard University; Scott Pellerin and Paul Kariya of the University of Maine; and Jason Krog of the University of New Hampshire.
"The Hobey Baker is 'the Heisman of college hockey' and one of the most prestigious award in all of college sports," said Rusty Sullivan, Executive Director of The Sports Museum. "We are naturally honored to have it on display here at The Sports Museum. The fact that the student-athletes who have won the award embody such great qualities of character and spirit makes the Hobey Baker a perfect fit for our museum and our mission."
"We are extremely excited to be associated with the Hobey Baker Memorial Award and enable Sports Museum visitors to see the trophy and learn more about the great athletes who are part of its vibrant history," says Larry O'Donnell, US Sales Director for Warrior Hockey. "It's a great development for all hockey fans in New England."
The Hobey Baker exhibit at The Sports Museum is located on Level 6 of the Garden opposite Suite 646. For more information about The Sports Museum, including hours of operation, please visit www.sportsmuseum.org. For more information on Warrior Hockey, please visit www.warrior.com.
