Baseball hall of fame design award

Cassie McFarland (Class of '08) won the U.S. Mint Baseball Coin Design Competition.

McFarland’s baseball glove design was one of 178 entries submitted between April 11 and May 11.  Her design, along with her initials, will appear on the obverses of the coins in National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Program, scheduled for release in early 2014.

McFarland, 27, drew inspiration for her design from a “well-loved glove” that was a constant fixture in her family home when she was growing up.  McFarland, a figurative painter and photographer, holds a bachelor’s degree of fine arts in Art and Design from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.
