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:

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
