‘Can vote up to 25 times’: Matthew McConaughey weighs in on Golden Spikes Award

Posted May 22nd, 2018


Alright, alright, alright, who are you voting for in the race for the Golden Spikes Award? Well, one of Texas’ most famous and prominent alum has a thought.

Vote for Kody Clemens, Academy Award winning actor Matthew McConaughey says, and do it 25 times.

McConaughey went to Twitter to lend his support to Kody Clemens, son of Longhorn legend Roger Clemens, for the Golden Spikes Award, which honors college baseball’s top player. Clemens, who won the Big 12 Player of the Year on Tuesday, is one of a handful of finalists up for the award.


Clemens hit 19 home runs, 12 in conference play, and hit .344 with 61 RBI and scored 53 runs. There are 25 semifinalists for the award, which will be announced later this season.
