The First Georgia Award for 2011 went to Motohiro Shima for his tie-breaking 3-run homer on 4/12 vs the Chiba Lotte Marines.

Shima misplayed a thrown ball to home plate in the 4th inning that allowed the Marines to take an early 1-0 lead.  But with runners on first and third and 2 out, Shima managed to erase the run he allowed with a tie-breaking 3-run homer off Yoshihisa Naruse.  The Eagles went on to win the game 6-4.  Georgia video - Box score
