At the end of each regular season, the Southeastern Conference names major award winners in baseball. Currently, it names a Coach, Pitcher, Player, and Freshman of the Year. The Coach of the Year award, which dates to 1933, is the oldest. The other three awards were added in the 1990s and early 2000s.
