The Brooks Wallace Award, sponsored by Mizuno, is presented annually to honor the nation's most outstanding shortstop. It is a tribute to Brooks Wallace, a slick-fielding shortstop at Texas Tech from 1977-80 who passed away at age 27 after a courageous battle with leukemia.

Prior to 2009, the award recognized the national player of the year.
