The NBP announced earlier today that the Eighth Georgia Award went to Terrmel Sledge for a diving catch he made during a game on 7/6 against the Chunichi Dragons.  The play came in the top of the 2nd when Tony Blanco nailed a shot towards the gap in left-center that would have probably gone for extra bases.  But Sledge had other plans and dove to make the play.  Georgia video - Box score
