CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation and Intersport are pleased to announce that the nomination period for the second annual TD Ameritrade Fan’s Choice Award is now open. The Fan’s Choice Award recognizes college baseball players who excel beyond the diamond and whose leadership inspires others.

To be eligible, players must be active in their communities, act as a positive role model to youth and teammates, and succeed in the classroom. The winner will be determined by fans through Facebook voting and will be honored at the 2013 TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby July 3. Fans, teammates, coaches, athletic directors and others interested in nominating a player who embodies the characteristics of this award should visit: Facebook.com/CollegeHomeRunDerby.

The TD Ameritrade Fan’s Choice Award is the only college baseball award determined solely by fans. To submit a nomination, interested parties must fill out a short submission form at the official Facebook page by 11:59 p.m. CDT on Friday, May 3. Nominees must be members of a collegiate team for the 2013 season. At the end of the nomination period, a selection committee will determine the 20 players who best exemplify the award’s principles. The 20 finalists will compete in a three-round, six-week voting competition starting Wednesday, May 8. The winner will be announced Friday, June 21.

Davidson College’s Drew Gadaire won The 2012 Fan’s Choice Award. A senior co-captain who batted .328, Gadaire had an on-base percentage of more than .400. Off the field, the senior spent time in Fez, Morocco, as a recipient of the Dean Rusk Language Grant, where he studied Arabic with a native Moroccan tutor and volunteered at a local shelter for underprivileged boys. Gadaire majored in Psychology and was a member of Davidson’s Student-Athlete Advisory Council.
