Phoenix staff report

— The Bacone College baseball team was announced on Monday as the recipient of the 2013 NAIA Baseball Champions of Character team award.

The Buffalo Funds Five Star award was created to recognize one team in every sport, regardless of whether they qualify for the national championships, based upon their documented display of exemplary character and sportsmanship during practice, competition, on campus, and in the community.

The baseball team was selected out of 189 potential NAIA institutions that sponsor baseball.
