Thomas McCormick, an outfielder for the Miner baseball team, was named as the recipient of the Mike Schmidt most valuable player award for the 2007 season as a member of the Quincy Gems of the Central Illinois Collegiate League.

The award completed a sweep for McCormick of the league’s awards for the 2007 season, as he was named as the most valuable player in both the first and second halves of the season as well as to the league’s all-star team as an outfielder in the wood bat league.

McCormick, a junior at UMR, led the CICL in all three triple crown categories, finishing with a .337 average, nine home runs and 40 runs batted in. He also headed the league in slugging percentage at .542, hits with 64, runs scored with 41 and total bases with 103.
