Scott Rawson Sloan Award and Memorial Fund

scott rawson sloanScott Rawson Sloan was killed in an automobile accident with three of his friends on June 18, 1992. Scott had just turned 16, but he had already made his mark on baseball in Vienna. 

Scott played on one Vienna Little League and three Babe Ruth League All Star teams. He was the catcher and a leading hitter for the Babe Ruth League Prep Team that won the Virginia State Championship in 1989. He was a second-year member of the Post 185 American Legion squad and was scheduled to be Madison High School's varsity catcher in 1993. Scott had already caught the eye of professional baseball scouts. 

We will never know how far Scott's strong throwing arm, quickness, keen batting eye, slashing line drives, ability to handle pitchers, and his deep understanding of the game would have taken him in baseball. But we do know that he brought an attitude to the game that is a model for others to follow. 

Following his death, Scott's parents established a memorial fund intended to promote Babe Ruth League Baseball in Vienna. The Scott Rawson Sloan Life Award, supported by the Scott Rawson Sloan Memorial Fund, honors Babe Ruth baseball players for demonstrating qualities for which Scott was known, including: 

o love for the game of baseball,
o demonstrated respect for other players, coaches and umpires,
o leadership by example, and
o generously teaching and sharing with other players. 

As long as these qualities are honored, on and off the baseball field, Scott will never be forgotten. 

The players who are chosen to receive this award become members for life of an exclusive group of recipients of the Scott Sloan Life Award. 

Donations for the continued support of the memorial fund and award would be appreciated and may be sent to:
