Recipient of the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame 2019 Scholarship Award

Brooklyn Shaw of Air Ronge, SK

Brooklyn Shaw’s love of baseball started while playing in the Battlefords Minor League for three [3] years. As a child of RCMP parents, she moved to Swift Current in 2010 and continued in the Minor Leagues there. She chose to play baseball even though she was the only girl on the team most years. Moving to LaRonge in 2012, Brooklyn was able to continue playing baseball in the newly formed minor league in that community.

Brooklyn has been a member of the Saskatchewan girls baseball teams competing with the 13 and under, then nationally in the 16 and under and the 21 and under. She travels from LaRonge to Saskatoon during the winter to continue training with the women’s team. She was on the training roster for summer 2019.

Brooklyn was a grade 12 student at Churchill High School in LaRonge, maintaining a 90% average, and has been accepted at the University of Regina, into the Bachelor of Science program with a focus on pre-dentistry.
